eBay US- No change to the announcement board, only contains   Millenium-
O-Rama message. http://www2.ebay.com/aw/announce.shtml

Yesterday eBay unblocked our ISP, and we received the following email
message from eBay Customer Support on Tues 9 Nov 99- Quote- Hi XXX- That
network was and it has been unblocked today by eBay.   
Thank You Isabel      -Endquote

We talked on the phone with Isabel yesterday, Tuesday; (XXX is the ISP
Tech Consultant) and asked exactly what had caused eBay to block our ISP
Subnet, and were told there was a spider on eBay coming from one of the
IP addresses on our subnet. We requested, that since our ISP cannot
find evidence of any unusual usage from that subnet, that eBay provide
us with the time/IP address logs showing the site violation, so we can
identify the violator and take appropriate action. Isabel agreed that
eBay would monitor and send us the logs. The ISP Tech sent the following
back up message to eBay Customer Support on Tues
9 Nov 99–   Quote-
Thanks for unblocking the IP, unfortunately is the server
address. Not a IP that would be accessible to anyone except the ISP
ROOT. (our server) There has to be a IP address in THAT Subnet
(208.223.113.x)that is the culprit.
If possible I would appreciate the ebay Log file that shows the spider
attack more specifically the IP Address, The Time and date this happened
(Very important) this way we can look at our own logs and see who was
using that IP at the time. – Endquote
We will update the status when we get the requested and agreed upon
information from eBay.
