There is a lot that eBay gets wrong.  The opportunity available to them
is enormous, but they just don't grasp it.  PayPal made making money
easy enough that eBay got left by the wayside.  Maybe now things can get
better - because if they don't they may not survive.  Posting something
directly online is tortuous, terribly confusing for newbies, and using
their "TurboLister" isn't much better.
