Thread Name: BS: eBay Strategy
Subject: RE: BS: eBay Strategy
I've learned a lot in the year and a half that I've been an eBay member, and much of what is in this thread still holds true.

I've listed quite a few things in the last couple of weeks, moving blithely along doing my own thing.

Tonight I decided to do some computer cleanup since it had been three or four weeks since I ran Spybot and AdAware, etc.

AdAware usually comes up with somewhere from 8 to 14 "Critical" elements I need to address. Tonight it came up with 735 of them! They were all variations on a place called "esomniture." A search on that came up with a company called Omniture, and a little wading around in Google came up with the information that eBay is using this site, and if people post inquiries about it in eBay discussion forums they quickly delete the discussion.

Anyone else experience this? Any thoughts? If I turn off cookies I'm sure my eBay work will grind to a halt.
