Think of eBay as an ecosystem...
As in any ecosystem, members of the community depend upon one another. The eBay ecosystem is composed of buyers and sellers... without one or the other the system falters and all become extinct. As in any ecosystem, different classes of organisms compete for survival.
The sellers in this ecosystem are comprised of occasional sellers, part time sellers, somewhat professional sellers, Powersellers and the Mega Conglomerate Super-sellers.
The question is, what kind of eBay seller are you?
I see eBay as a community... and as in every community, whether a country or a small town, there are different status levels, income levels, outlooks, thoughts and fears among those who participate in the community. The community as a whole seems cohesive from the outside, but when one wades into the inner workings of any community, a whole range of thoughts and ideas about the community ecosystem and its rules will become apparent.
As eBay members and sellers, we must keep in mind the simple facts of life in any community. Some rules work fine for some members, yet the same rules are looked upon as a poison by other members.
