A couple of eBay whines

1. The greedy bastards are hiking up the costs...again. As if the billions and billions they're raking in wasn't enough. It's really pretty pathetic.
2. I received a notice the other day that they were not able to automatically withdraw funds for January's fees directly from PayPal due to "technical difficulties." Excuse my pointing out the obvious -- PayPal and Ebay are one and the same company now. How f*cking hard is it to withdraw your own f*cking money. Can't a technogeek within the gold gilded walls figure out how to turn on the switch so that Ebay's database speaks with PayPal's across the room?? Maybe the fee hike mentioned in 1. is to buy a clue? Or to buy a new network admin? In any event...BOOOOO.
