    Who're you trying to kid? The only people "striking" will be those that don't actually use eBay to make a *living*. And likely, those are also the types of people that rip buyers off.

    You might want to go to cnn news and ebay message boards and power sellers unite and research for yourself and get informed.

    I don't know other than the planet is full of uninformed opinionated people. One of the reasons why our country is in the condition it is in.

    I'm telling ya, if people would just stop wasting their lives watching TV, we'd all be a lot better off. Read your news online. I'm not even recommending any particular site, but most of the time the internet is less biased and censored than TV. It's just a friendly suggestion to everyone who watches their "news" on TV.

    The fact that I spent no less than 4 years as a full time Power Seller on eBay, perhaps? For ever 10,000 sellers that take part in this so-called strike, there will be 50,000 sellers who'll suck up the sales that will still be taking place.

    Incidently.. THIS will be the attitude of a large majority of sellers who will take part in the strike:

    And sonar5jr won't be selling anything that week either. "I'm in, but I will stop selling on Feb. 12, so that on Feb. 20 when the extortion scheme begins, I won't have anything running," said sonar5jr on the eBay forum. "I won't list againf until ... one week later."

    This time is different! I believe the sellers have had enough this time.
    Yeah and those 50,000 sellers will be the ones that will go down with the ship. My friend with over 15,000/100% positive fb is going on strike and lots are following. I am a power seller myself and will also be going.
    This ship is sinking. People are either going to swim with the rats or go down with the ship...OR E-Pay will change its new policy that just came out just a few days ago. This time they have really shot themselves in the foot. Sellers are scattering like cockroaches when you turn on the light. If you think people will allow E-Pay to hold their money for 21 days and demand that the package be shipped to the buyer while they hold their money, you and E-Pay have another thing comming.
