Looks like a bit of fun on the ebaY Forums.
(oops, I mean for everyone except the folks who will fall victim in whatever way)
This looks like it may even be considered a sort of follow-up to this recent post, right here;
Someone tried to warn, and the post was pulled.
Why has ebaY not been proactive in informing, thereby protecting “IT”‘s users? Why is “IT” deliberately depriving “IT”s own users of such info?
I cannot believe they are not leading the charge to correct this, instead of trying to bury everything. (because that is not going to work, ahem…)
How many more times will IT happen? Are there more any “LISTS” which we just have not found out about yet?
Do you, should you, trust anyone/any outfit like that?

BTW, if anyone is unsure about clicking TinyURLs, all you need do is copy it, go to their site, TinyURL.com and find out where the link goes to.
so they are very long, long enough to “break” anyplace they are put

People reading this should be aware this hacking, hijacking and uncorreceted critical security flaws situation has carried right on through since February 2007. Not only that, but the site is even worse now than it ever has been for various reasons. You can visit my youtube channel check the main page and archives here for proof.
