International Strike against ebaY

International ebaY users in the UK, France Spain and other countries are grumbling about ebaY’s lack of service and responsiveness to their users. This is nothing new to US users, who have long sought a viable alternative to ebaY. There is a plan afoot to boycott ebaY through 31 Dec. US users have long since learned the futility of such an action, when the simple act of listing on other sites to move a significant amount of business off ebaY, would be the final solution. Once another site gets a sufficient number of listings (in the range of 3 million listings) the buyers will follow. Only when there is true competition in the online auction and trading industry, will ebaY be forced to provide customer service, and actually listen to their customers.
