Searching ebaY for wikileaks items I discovered some peculiarities with the number of results shown Vs the number of actual listings.
This hearkens back to the massive “padded listings” scandal of 2008, when ebaY got caught padding their listing counts during a Boycott, then went further by issuing several falsehoods and censoring their forums, then lying about that too.
Look here for the playlist which documented those events:
Pertinent/supporting links are there in the video descriptions along with a lot of comments from eyewitnesses.
There is also a very comprehensive report on those events here. :)
This may also indicate/exemplify the “rolling blackouts”
