eBay US – No further information about two users who eBay threatened to
permanently NARU if they post on the public boards re the babysitr shill

eBay has had repeated outages during the past three days. They are
blaming it on unusual loads, caused by server problems. They also state
that one of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that connects to eBay
has had Internet traffic routing problems since Sunday, causing network
connections to eBay to time out. eBay has notified the ISP, and rerouted
their traffic to avoid the faulty ISP.

In another ISP related development, eBay blocked one of our ISPs on
23 October. They never contacted the ISP to let the ISP know about it.
After receiving emails and phone calls on the lack of access from the
ISP, eBay responded in a vague way saying that there might be something
going on at the ISP site that violates section 7 of the User agreement.
We are pursuing further information about this, and hope to have an
update soon.

The last feedback forum is Thurs 4 Nov on DNF 0900 PT
