    Sue Bailey, so long my friend, sleep well :’(

    Thursday, August 18th, 2011

    It took so long to start to write this, the news of Sue’s death was a real shock to me as it was to many and I didn’t think that there was anything I could write that would do her justice. Sue touched the online lives of many and her work and influence will be [...]

    Postal Fraud, Feedback Extortion & Non Paying Buyers, all in a days work for the eBay Seller? And then you get low DSR’s to go with it, but it’s all down to the buyers perception, you just need to know what that is … simples!

    eBay, where’s the education?

    Sunday, July 4th, 2010

    Education Specialists trained by eBay, those originally trained to lecture at the eBay University and put on their own courses, were given ‘death by powerpoint’ materials that were primarily for the US site.
