Ebay is forcing its' members to use Paypal for all transactions. There is also some obscure alternative which no one uses available.
No more checks, no more money orders. WHY? Because Ebay does not collect a percentage on those independent means of conducting business!
Also shipping fees will have limits. WHY? Because Ebay does not collect percentages on shipping fees!!!
Actually it is the mega-sellers that Ebay is catering to that charge the outrageous shipping: it is good business.
Ebay owns Paypal. How much more blatant can you get????
How could this NOT be a clear violation of the Sherman Act (no, not the guy from "Hello, Muddah, Hello Fuddah, Here I am at Camp Granada" ;o)?
By the way, Ebay owns 25% of Craig's List.
Let it rip!!!

Illinois suffered serious flooding recently. Senator Dick Durbin surveyed the damage. He did his job!
Where was our US senator, representing the state of Illinois Barack Obama? He was out campaigning in Colorado.
Obama has done NOTHING for the state of Illinois!
