Day 6 of the eBay boycott, listings pretty normal

Boycott stats
More stats from PowerSellers Unite.

eBay listings increased again today, putting them equal to (or even slightly above) where they were earlier this month. Statistics are again from PowerSellers Unite. You can visit them to see the current volume versus the same time on the previous day at their site anytime.

Total listings increased 204,069 over the same time yesterday, or a 1.52 percent increase. In the chart at the bottom of this post, you can see the trend for the month of February up through today. There was a big spike on the 20 cent list day, followed by a plunge one week later, as one would expect. With only a day left, it seems unlikely that the boycott is having much of an effect.

Wired ran a piece on the boycott yesterday. I can’t help but suggest you read through some of the comments on the article to see the paranoia and vitriol eBay elicits.

The Submit button may not be appearing or working correctly in IE6. I would suggest upgrading to IE7 or Firefox 2 for full functionality (I'm still looking for a solution to this if anyone knows one).
