I have to say that that looks a lot like a shill for

I *do* expect them to be better after the eBay take-over.  eBay gets it's
money exclusively from sellers, and is clearly biased toward sellers.  I'd
expect that to rub off a bit on their subsidiary, over time.

Of course, to the extent that both are near-monopolies, neither will be
to do all that well by their customers.  (That said, I still think both are
providing excellent value.)
