Anti Ebay sites

http://nolistingday.com

http://www.petitiononline.com/ebayfee/

http://www.themafiareport.com

http://www.sapphiresdelight.com

There are probably many other anti ebay sites out there if you know of any please let me know. Ebay has been deleting the links to anti ebay sites on their discussion boards so if you see one post it here before it gets deleted.

You can tell when ebay deletes a topic because when you try to goto it you get this "Community Forums Error"

Another anti-ebay boycott site is www.thepoint.com under heading Boycott Ebay for Fair Seller Policies. It was started on 1/30/2008.

Hi ssandee
That's why I started Auction1.co.uk to give seller's
a better deal, you can't get better than "Free"
my site has been online since 2004
and to-date I have never made a penny from it.

Hi CuFF,

yeah, just do a google search of
The WEbay Plan, and take a look at what's up, and maybe get a bit hopeful, a bit excited again...

Hello Everyone,

I am writting today about SUBAT. They call themselves a union and an established union. I am a retired Union Member and My wife Ginger is currently with AFSCME Local 896 through the Oregon State Police in Salem Oregon. We can not find any information on this supposed union. AFL/CIO does not recognize them and they do not show up in the list of recognized union locals.

In another format PSU they are asking for money to get this going. They Say Free site to users and sellers. If they are asking for money, then it is not free. They ask for volunteers to run the site. Are theses volunteers aware this is a 24/7 operation? It all sounds good, but who is going to foot the power bill, pay security to keep you safe from thieves, buy the programs needed to make the site, and the who is going to buy the server to host the site?

The idea sounds great, but as an owner of an Auction site, I can tell you this project needs 24/7 servicing. It needs a host of Techs chasing down bugs and writing fixes for those bugs. What you propose, is not feasable. I noted the Subat email is at a yahoo account. This throws up red flags folks and you should have some concern about fraudulant postings giving a yahoo account (Phishing 101).

I am Pro Union so make no mistake on where I stand with this post. I operate an auction site and as the site grows will invite Unions to talk to the employees and let them deside what Union Best Speaks For Them.

They talk about a seller run site. I already offer this. The sellers do not want a seller run site, they want a high traffic site. They do not for the most part want to build a little site into a mega site. They just want to make money and there is nothing wrong with that. But what the SUBAT is offering reeks of scam. I have contacted the AFL/CIO and will be in contact with a board of Unions or simular agency to be on the watch for these people stating they are a Union.

So in short I am calling you all to order to demand some documentation of this Union. Force them to produce evidence they are legit, as they have not done so thus far. They seem to skirt the questions asked of them. They even tried to get me to close my auction site to join their cause. Sound Phishy? It does to me and more needs to be produced to prove who they are. I am not saying that they don't exist, but I am saying they are not a Union and should restrain from stating they are a union. I would strongly advise more investigation into this Subat for your own protection. Thanks for allowing me to post here,

webay already exists and is not forsale. This info can be found by doing a whois search. SUBAT does not own the rights to webay and should abstain from saying the name as being there own.ssandee wrote (View Post): › docWrite("quote")

I also closed my store but my primary reason was them eliminating store inventory items priced at 99c or less. I sell sportscards and there are many collector's in remote locations who rely on the internet to find cards of favorite players or teams. By eBay eliminating the 99c or less items, they are hurting buyers as well as sellers. Furthermore, I honestly believe that waht they are doing is illegal. Under the User Agreement, I agreed to pay fees that they reserved the right to change as long as they gave sufficient notice. Telling me what I can charge is not a "fee" of theirs. The merchandise is MINE, and as long as I paid my monthly store subscription fee, I feel it is MY decision what price to ask for.
So I have moved my store to WeBidz.com where there are no insertion fees and no FVF's.
I am also looking into the legality of eBay's price fixing and hope to be able to file a class action lawsuit against them

It looks like an auction site using a "UNION" as a way to get people to use their site. What kind of protection will they offer? Unions are legit organizations that offer protection for workers rights. I am a family of working class unions and I too have asked questions and received no answers. As Phase II begins with 10,001 people they ask all who have joined to send in the $5 fee that the joiner said they would commit to equal to $50,005 but the money will "sit"until the phase is complete at 20,000 joined. At 5.00/per for their 20,000 per goal that is a profit of 100,000 dollars in their pockets with no answers as to what we will receive in protection. Unions themselves do not open their own shops. They offer a means for the working class to become educated and enter the work force with the protection of their workers rights. They make sure that workers get the benefits and pay that they deserve due to the quality of education that they provide. And as stated by northwestblvd above Subat lists their email using hotmail and it is the #1 email system out there for scammers. I fully support the strike and will be a hold out on all things ebay until I for one receive the confirmation from ebay that they are listening to the sellers and not sweeping this boycott under the rug, as they have done so far.
But I am also seeing a surge in scam sites popping up as a result of the unhappy sellers out there. Sites will promise so much and give you a taste of what they can do and I just believe myself that when Phase II is enacted and the money they are "sitting" on till they reach their goal will disappear unless they leave faster. I believe the golden rule applies here. If it is too good to be true it is." But don't just listen to me check it out for your self. But also check into how scams work. Using a "UNION" to get a marketplace running is deceptive in itself.

Hello Everyone,

Some very powerful points have been made about the strike/boycott and some sites popping up that may be out to rip us off. Unrest is the breading grounds for scams to pop up. In the case of the Subat, I mis-quoted some information (scammers using their names and emails with subtle changes not noticed right away) caused me to think I was being asked to do certain things by the subat. The point with the email is a real problem and hence my assertion is valid in the concern I had for the email they had for the cause. What I received in my email was subtle changes to the email account by adding a number or an alternate letter in the address.
After getting reamed by one of the subat folks publically, I had to go back and try to piece things to gether and try to defend myself. I then found these subtle changes in the email addys and realized what was going on. There were individuals trying to create desention in the ranks and altimately pull off a scam using the subat name sake.
I to support the strike/boycott and hope the folks with the subat campaign get a better email address than the current one. I do owe the campaigners an apology for some comments I made, but the one about the email address I stand fast to and will not change my opinion. An earlier statement made by another member here brought forth a good point about subat not actually saying they were a union, and that person was right, as I responded to the keyword "UNION" in the subat name. Thanks for this site and all the input and ideas. We will come out on top if we just work together.
