The Auction Guild Notes for Saturday 13 Nov 1999
We strongly recommend that you opt for EMAIL MESSAGE,   
NOT digest for your subscription option. Messages get sent immediately,
digests get sent and posted to the site 24+ hours later. If you need
help changing your subscription option, just drop us an email. We have
posted a survey on the site, and would appreciate your input.
eBay US- is having search indexing problems.   Search indexing was   
behind approximately 2 days.   The problem was identified and fixed at
approx 0530 PT and updated through Friday.   It will take several update
cycles to bring everything up to date and current.

EBay has a warning   on the announcement board - Some users have
received another fake eBay email marked "Your credit card has been
compromised.". This email claims to have been sent from the "eBay Fraud
Department"   and urges the recipient to visit a web site and provide
personal credit card information at that site. If you have received this
email, do NOT visit the site and do NOT provide your credit card
information.   eBay   will never request your credit card information
via email.

They also have a special holiday suggestion page.   Holiday-o-rama page
at:   http://www.ebay.com/holidayorama Includes a link to the new eBay
Official Guide.   http://www2.ebay.com/aw/announce.shtml

Still no information from eBay on the spider that eBay alleges was
operating on our ISP subnet.   eBay agreed to send information when they
unblocked the ISP subnet on 9 Nov, so that we could find and take
appropriate action against the perpetrator, but hasn’t.   The last phone
call from the ISP Tech to eBay elicited a “the person who does the logs
is on vacation”.   For something eBay thought was important enough to
block 254 potential users,   this appears to be very inconsistent
behavior.   Our ISP wants to fix this problem NOW, and eBay appears to
be stonewalling – very strange.
