I'm so sad about ebay, CEO Todd (john?) Donahoe ruined it and I will never buy or sell there again.

I also stopped dealing with e-Bay once the bidding became anonymous. Iím not willing to deal with shill bidding by unethical sellers, and there are certain people who share my interests I donít wish to bid against. There are some people who bid until they win because they are insane or because they have too much money. Other people I donít like to bid against because Iíve corresponded with them, and if they place a bid before I do I see it as they have marked their territory. Now that bid histories arenít available, I canít see the shills, avoid driving up the price for someone Iím acquainted with, or not waste my time bidding against the insane or well-heeled person who will have the item no matter what.
What turned me off of eBay was having to dig through 10 pages of cheap Chinese knockoffs posted 100 times a day to find one actual product sold by a real person as an actual auction.
I just want "No buy it now" and "no sellers that have a store" options for searching.
