EBay To Ban Negative Feedbacks?

If you have ever done business on eBay you’ll understand the importance of the eBay feedback system.

It is also a fact that the feedback system is not totally reliable as some people can arrange with others to exchange feedbacks which help them appear like trusted individuals to intending buyers.

There is so much fraud on eBay ranging from item not received, to non-payment for items won and sometimes items paid for isn’t exactly what it was said to be. This brings to fore the reason why the feedback system should be strengthened.

Power sellers for example are almost always trustworthy and can help one reduce the chance of getting scammed.

EBay a PayPal company accepts PayPal as the preferred payment option and thus one can ask for a chargeback where transactions failed or one is not satisfied with the product offered. But the process of getting back this money is sometimes over bearing that it’s better not to get into it all.

Therefore the feedback system still remains the most reliable way of predicting a transaction that will likely failed. So the plan to ban members from leaving negative feedbacks from May 2008 may not go down well with buyers.

Sellers will certainly embrace this new policy if it comes to pass. But buyers will have to take so much risk as sellers can now do anything knowing they will not be left negative feedbacks.

This decision should be properly considered before implementation to avoid a total buyer boycott of eBay services.

Super Duper Semi Final For Ghana 2008

The super Eagles got eliminated in the quarter Final Stages of the current AFCON by a not just impressive Ghanaian team but technically sound as well. Just a few overly optimistic fans of the Eagles were disappointed. My last post which previewed the game clearly stated my lack of trust in the ability of the current Eagles especially in that of the technical crew.

Every football novice saw how Vogts’ inefficiency, cluelessness and lack of current football techniques sent the super Eagles to an early exit from the Nations Cup.

We are still licking our wounds and pondering at what should be the way forward for Nigerian football.

Should Vogts be sacked or not? Maybe I will let this be for now? We’ll wait and hear from the Nigerian Football Association. Knowing them for what there are, I expect a rash and definitely senseless decision to be taken soon.

Super Eagles have failed to progress and it seems to me that gone are the days when one could proudly say that a Nations Cup without Nigeria is like the World Cup without Brazil. It’s now more like a Nations Cup with Cameroon and Egypt is all that matters. These two have proven to be the most consistent teams in Africa in the past 18 to 20 years.

Cameroon has always found a way of getting to the semis. Right now the championship is turning out to be the best in history. All four teams left have won the cup for at least twice in the past and within them, they have won the title for 16 times. That is an average four times each. From this stage we can all expect the best of African football. Cameroon Vs Ghana, Egypt Vs Ivory Coast; this will not come as a surprise to any ardent follower of African football. It is what I call a super Duper semi final.

Back home in Nigeria, we will stay glued to our TV sets to enjoy what promises to be the most exciting semi finals in the history of the game in Africa.
