From a thread on the UK Round table:

Quote
before I went out tonight, I scheduled an item to start...[I use Auctiva}

Just come home to see No items For Sale on my ebay page!

Logged into auctiva to see....Error....ebay no longer accept bank transfers or cheques as payment methods!

Grrrr....they just want more and more dosh out of us by forcing paypoo on us!

The thread is here.

Doesn't surprise me in the least....BTW....you should let them know what ACCC translates to...they may have a consumer and competition commission over there too but under a different name.  It's definitely anti-competitive conduct relative to competition in their EFT marketplace.....so there will be a similar body in the UK.

I find that amazing.  That person had obviously not even been notified by Ebay of the change. 

I hope the Poms can fight it in some way like was done here.

retbags, they are always moving the goalposts, where they get you is subtitles, anything that moves extra and doubling it for all cats, rotters, no mention of the falling numbers of visitors i would say ebay is down around 75% on a year ago on unique visitors, thats the untold story ... why someone with deep pockets does not take them on is beyond me

I'm sure it's only the arrogance of a handful of posters here that stops this site reaching it's potential.

I have yet to see any logical reasoning for the current onslaught, maybe there is none and it is in deed a blatant money grab.

Bazza are you confusing a need for a logical explanation with arrogance?

Perhaps you might like to enlighten me with your views.

The thread looks like a storm in a teacup.

My comment was questioning the arrogance of 'I want to see some logical justification from you', prior to any contrary remark.

I would hardly call the indignation Poddy has expressed as arrogance.  If nothing else, I interpret his statement as a challenge for any of the champions of eBay to step forward and give a rational explanation of the action being discussed.

That is, to be quite distinct from merely being expected to accept whatever unsubstantiated, illogical or improbable propaganda that is rolled out.  I would envisage that will include any media releases that have greater credibility from their use of multi-syllabic terms, than the logic portrayed.

In short - asking that any response given makes sense.


I thought that quite a reasonable expectation.

The only thing that's reached a potential around here is your comment Bazz... Poddy's thrown out the gauntlet ... I believe it's your turn to respond with an acceptable answer ... till you come up with anything I'll continue to entertain the audience... I'll mail you my bill for services rendered..

Hello Brum6y. No it's pure arrogance. The message is 'don't bother posting here, if I don't approve of your response'

The likelyhood that Poddy is going to approve of any contrary remark equals nil. You know it, we all know it.

Shouldn't members here feel comfortable in posting comments that reflect what they think.......not what other members demand they think?

Why should anybody have to conform to another members rules rather than the site's rules to avoid pre-destined confrontation?

Maybe read the post again.

I can say "No", too.  But it doesn't make me right any more than it does you.

It is quite obvious that you are diverting attention away from the request to provide a logically supported response - which is a fundamental element of debate.

I have found that such an approach is derived from one or both of two motivators:
 1. That the respondant has no logically supportable response and will make any and all efforts to undermine the proponent. **
 2. That the respondant simply enoys being divisive.


An illustration from the movie "Thank you for Smoking"

Nick Naylor - A spokesman for the tobacco industry talking to his son, Joey....

Nick Naylor: That's the beauty of argument, if you argue correctly, you're never wrong.

Joey Naylor: ...so what happens when you're wrong?
Nick Naylor: Whoa, Joey I'm never wrong.
Joey Naylor: But you can't always be right...
Nick Naylor: Well, if it's your job to be right, then you're never wrong.
Joey Naylor: But what if you are wrong?
Nick Naylor: OK, let's say that you're defending chocolate, and I'm defending vanilla. Now if I were to say to you: 'Vanilla is the best flavour ice-cream', you'd say...
Joey Naylor: No, chocolate is.
Nick Naylor: Exactly, but you can't win that argument... so, I'll ask you: so you think chocolate is the end all and the all of ice-cream, do you?
Joey Naylor: It's the best ice-cream, I wouldn't order any other.
Nick Naylor: Oh! So it's all chocolate for you is it?
Joey Naylor: Yes, chocolate is all I need.
Nick Naylor: Well, I need more than chocolate, and for that matter I need more than vanilla. I believe that we need freedom. And choice when it comes to our ice-cream, and that Joey Naylor, that is the defintion of liberty.
Joey Naylor: But that's not what we're talking about
Nick Naylor: Ah! But that's what I'm talking about.
Joey Naylor: ...but you didn't prove that vanilla was the best...
Nick Naylor: I didn't have to. I proved that you're wrong, and if you're wrong I'm right.
Joey Naylor: But you still didn't convince me
Nick Naylor: It's that I'm not after you. I'm after them.
[points into the crowd]



Good night Nick.

No brum6y, the only point I'm making is the arrogance of the post.

There is no arguement because the point is mute.

However, had the subject of the thread been a viable debating point, I would think that members should post their responses in the way they choose, not 'as directed'.

My question was and still is to anyone who defends the action of eBay/PayPal/Aptiva in the case in question, is to come up with some logical reason why the fees should be paid using PayPal to the exclusion of all other methods.

It smacks of a blatant money grab once again.
Anyone who got the impression that I was after a preconceived answer which agrees with my own is mistaken.

There are few people who would have misinterpreted my request for a logical explanation as arrogance. I have already said that a request of some sort of logical explanation should not be confused with arrogance.

Quotation should contain all the content of the sentence being quoted and not just a part.

I notice that the issue was sidestepped and an attempt to steer the debate off course.
And seeing that you want to go down that path, be my guest.

Bazza you may post whatever you wish in any way that you wish.

'don't bother posting here, if I don't approve of your response'

I do not know why you get the above impression, why would anyone want my approval?

Why should anybody have to conform to another members rules rather than the site's rules to avoid pre-destined confrontation

I have asked no one to conform to ‘my rules’ that is a delusion.

I have seen no evidence of any ‘as directed’ responses so please enlighten me by pointing to them.

*yawn*....I have to wonder about people who consistently post divisive and negative comments whenever a debate involving Ebay's unconscionable conduct arises.....never a factual statement in cooee...just venemous heckling.....devoid of any intellect..

Last time it was Phil you were bashing Bazza, now its Poddy, and on occasion myself and others.....What I see is that your attitude is the issue, I can't recall on one occasion that you have posted anything remotely friendly or even interesting.... other than the same old, same old..this site is doomed, this site has outlived it's purpose..yadda, yadda, yadda...

You even showed up on Australia day to spread your idea of community...lmao....that went down well huh?

I agree with brumby regarding your 'agenda' bazza...and it seems such a familiar approach after all.....bit like dejavu lmao...

1. That you have no logically supportable response and will make any and all efforts to undermine the proponent. **
 2. That you simply enjoy being divisive.

You don't have to be a member here if you so despise the site and its members mate......membership is voluntary...nobody is keeping you here and clearly you have nothing positive to contribute......whenever you post it's always the same negative stuff...I suppose it's easy for people like you to point the finger, while contributing nothing but venom..... but Bazza, if you think you can do any better, feel free to open a site that suits your own rather negative and unfriendly standards....Let's see how many would flock to such a site to read all your pearls of wisdom......why not try it eh?...let's see how you go...then you can come back here and argue tangibly....

....we'll miss you of course Bazza....but we'll survive...lol

There are plenty of other web site forums and there is Twitter but, aren't you already there?
