Please give us your input on the NEW SURVEY   How did you find TAGnotes?
eBay affiliates are having difficulties. Looks like time for some
internal housecleaning. emagazine the User ID for Krause, the
publisher of eBay magazine, has 143 neutrals (38 pos)on their eBay
account. The large majority of these comments are negatives, primarily
for spamming, late issues, no issues sent to subscribers etc.

Butterfields (owned by eBay) has 13 pos 15 neutrals that are primarily
neg comments, and 5 negs. These are for excessive handling costs
(for example S/H was $15, actual cost $1.95) late or no shipment after
payment, wrong items shipped, and other bad experiences.

Carsonline (owned by eBay) the eBay User ID of Kruse International car
Auction,has been suspended for shill feedback once, has 10 pos, the
majority (all?) of which is eBay transaction unrelated, and 6 negative
neutrals, for non response to queries etc.

eBay has been doing a much better job of posting updates and details
of what action they are planning or taking. It is good to see them
taking some of the input of users, and acting on it. They have a
long way to go, but the improvements are noted!
