Misc ebaY related

ebaY, the largest stockholder in South Korea’s Internet Auction Co, has requested that the company delist from the KOSDAQ stock exchange. This despite what has reportedly been a profitable enterprise with $939 million dollars gross value of goods sold through the site.

ebaY continues to censor terminology on their site, now prohibiting any descriptions that might be considered a slur or offensive term. This will be true even if the description is appropriate for the time/era of the item.
