Question Who is "Today on eBay"?

Hello Administrator(s),

May I ask who is "Today on eBay", is it a private member or a site sponsor? why do his posts in 'For Sale, Trade or Swap' section always appear on the quick sticker 'Latest Thread'?

Sometime their titles made me confused with release announcement or something to discuss until I click open thread and know it is just a listing on eBay. In my opinion, some of these posts sometimes are really annoyed since they don't bring any informative subjects or discussion except for private or retail selling, why should they appear on Latest Thread?

Sorry if this topic has been already discussed somewhere, but could you please give an explanation?

Thank you!

Sorry, Admins, but I agree that Today on eBay is a problem that has never been dealt with. The way the DA.C site is currently set up, this guy is doing nothing wrong other than hijack the For Sale, Trade, or Swap forum- a real bother, and that's being kind. Doug Seeley

I agree, this habit is not really abiding by the spirit of the original intention of the items for sale thread. i.e. collector's private transactions.

It's a Bot actually. All it does it bring those links to the site. We could disable it, if it's presence is not wanted though. Any others want to weigh in?

Greetings Kevin,

I agree with my fellow DAC members above. I wouldn't mind having that link removed. I do believe that if a particular DAC member is looking for a specific model on Ebay; they probably check Ebay every single day or have notifications sent to their Ebay userid. Regards, T7

The whole frigging forum is being taken over by these 'Today on E. Bay' posts!!! This is just ridiculous! Are the mods going to do anything?

I just looked at the ForSale/Trade section and 'Today on eBay' is out of control. So many posts per day now.

You say it's a bot. Please take it down if you can. There is no place on a forum like DAC for such self-serving intrusions.

I have already seen five threads written one above the other in Latest Threads, all signed by Today on eBay.
This is a real pollution.

Thank goodness.

It was really getting very annoying.

People who use a forum knows how to search on e-bay - for what interests them.
