Persona Non Grata at eBay Live


Monday, 25 June 2007 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

We’re finally back, so it’ll be time to blog about what we’ve experienced this month.

First, I’d like to mention the interesting fact of seeing a certain person walking around eBay Live. It was Mr. Adam Ginsberg, permanently suspended eBay seller who wants to be your source of information on selling on eBay. It’s like a disbarred lawyer trying to sell legal advice. I’m just not OK with it.

Second, it’s weird that someone thinks he’s a great in the business. People, do some research already!

He wore dark sunglasses around the floor (indoors) and hasn’t written any public blog posts about being there. But if you are the greatest eBay speaker and author, what’s the big secret? Why look like you’re trying to fly under the radar? Well, let’s see.

  • eBay hand picks who speaks on which topics. You didn’t speak at this convention.
  • eBay hand picks who gets to exhibit on the floor. You didn’t exhibit on the floor.

You can do business with whomever you like, but in my opinion, I wouldn’t spend money with someone who’s not a friend to eBay and is acting like this. Get your eBay books, seminars, products, and more from Certified Providers who have good relationships with eBay and aren’t permanently suspended sellers.
