The Wrath of Ebay: Visions of Corporate Hell

Commented Apr 1, 2008 at 18:41:37 in Business

“Two times I wanted to buy a laptop from ebay and I did not received the item after I payed. The first time I was lucky I recovered my payment, but the second time I could not recover $2000. The item was insured up to $2000 dolars through Paypal but they did not want to pay the insurance (all the procedures were in term and correct). After a long fight with paypal and ebay, I gave up and I took the loss, but I went on ebay forum and I started to tell my story. After a while I was banned from the forum by their moderation team.
I did not use a bad vocabulary, I just related the story, but they do not want to spread the bad news about their business. I told them that they have a Middle Age Model of business and to move their company in Somalia or China where is more suitable to their policy”

Even so, I am afraid that when he is going to start the real investigations, he will be dead. I hope he is smart enough to organize a strong security.”

“outnow, you are being naive.
Politics in USA is about how much money a politician (does not matter the colour) can collect, to be able to pay commercials to lie to masses that he will work for them, and after elected, to serve the donors, establishing rules in their favor. Obama is not an exception from this game, he is just more articulate. I will believe in US Democracy when I will a few more parties.”

“Yes, in a country where free speech prevails, and the government is there for the citizens:

"Opposition Socialist Party leader Martine Aubry said people were out in the streets "to express what worries them: the fact that they work and yet cannot make ends meet, retired people who just can't make it [financially], the fear of redundancies, and a president of the Republic and a government that just don't want to change policy". "

The response:

"President Nicolas Sarkozy said concerns over the crisis were legitimate and the government had to listen and act.

He will meet union and business leaders next month to discuss what programme of reforms to follow this year, he said. "”

Obama's Latest Dumb Pick: TV Doc Sanjay Gupta

Commented Jan 7, 2009 at 17:16:27 in Politics

“Doctors should be professionals not celebrities. A good doctor is not well known by media, and should not be subject to media attention.
He is right: Gupta is a failed doctor, who became a media star, just because he is playing games with power and money. A good doctor does not have time to spent with social and media circus because this is a profession in which you have to study until you retire in order to be good.”

Michael Giltz on Jan 7, 2009 at 18:35:34

“MyCall, I appreciate your comment about trying to make a positive suggestion. This wasn't a positive, helpful, column however. It was indeed a negative one that thought perhaps the unlikely pick of Gupta was a sign of a troubling trend in picks by Obama. My polite comments at the very bottom were just polite throat-clearing, not a sign that in fact I believed Gupta was a great choice but simply a willingness to hope that he might do well. Isn't that a rejection of the negativity you asked me to avoid? As for my pick, I don't have one. I highly doubt the best pick for Surgeon General or even the top ten best picks for Surgeon General would be names familiar to the general public or indeed anyone outside the medical establishment. That's my point. We've heard of Sanjay Gupta but that's hardly a helpful recommendation. Few had heard of C Everett Koop and any other Surgeon Generals of the past decades. Why suddenly we'd alight on a commentator on CNN with poor ethics is beyond me.”
