i changed my email of my ebay account, deleted the items,
there were 3 surfboards and in the end deleted my ebay

get a new password for all your accounts, do malware scans
on your devices, any old accounts you don't use deleted them
to minimise your digital footprint, enable multiple step
security on any exsisting accounts, create the strongest
passwords possible

the other month a bot spammed me an old password from some
account I don't know what it was from, but I recognised the
password as one of mine, it was probably from a massive data
leak rather from a company rather than an individual account
being hacked, I imagine that's what has happened to you, but
for peace of mind id do some of the things I suggested

searchable database of large hack dumps. put your
credentials in to see if they're amongst the popular things
floating around the dark web. sometimes, as a bonus, they
have a footnote about how your password got on there in the
first place

i should probably just start closing shit i'm not really
using, tbh

it would make me kind of sad to cancel ebay. they've been
increasingly shit over the years; haven't bothered with them
for anything in ages... i have had the account since
Feb-18-99, according to my userinfo page. that makes the
account literally over twenty years old.

the first thing i bought was some "eastern acoustics"
powered PC speaker kinda things... they're beefy, they sound
good enough for $15 or whatever i paid, and i am actually
using them as my monitors for hardware jams / general music
blasting in the living room right now.

paypal did not exist, then. i mailed a check.

I think my ebay account got automatically shut down due to
inactivity which is a bit shit

it would be charming that they haven't updated their site
design in a decade if it wasn't so completely terrible

it is a bit on the dated side I guess

modern site design is all "let's make it feel like you're
using a smartphone" and while the business end of the stick
is accessible as shit, anything more than trivial is buried
under a maddening series of menus, swipes, whatever. back
when web was all desktop, there was more density to the
interface, and, thus, easier access to more subtle
functions. the first gmail interface comes to mind here -- i
would love, love, love to switch back to that right now. the
recurring redesigns have made it more, more, more full of
empty white space and widgetized bullshit and then we have a
moment at the office where multiple people have to send a
similar email and suddenly everyone's saying "hey google
wrote the email for me" but it's different for everyone.
like, the guy with a thick russian accent, what google
generated for him was as perfectly fucked up as his comments
in source code are.

anyways, i liked the old-skool gmail. i would respect google
so much more if i could just flip over to something like
that. hence, my really obtuse joke -- if i liked ebay's 10yo
interface as much as gmail's 10yo interface, it would be
charming if they'd have stuck with it

When John Donahoe took the reigns of North KorEbay it was
absolutely clear that Caligula was divorcing and re-marrying
his horse over and over again, and that a ruthless demonic
attack was taking place against vital buying and selling
infrastructure, and just like twitter+youtube+facebook+more
all colluded in a giant racketeering orchestrated attack to
deplatform alex jones and more, ebay+amazon both colluded
together to completely sabotage 100% of the income of
non-crony sellers. They did it with glee as malicious
trolls, taking sick masturbatory pleasure in their twistedly
creative horse marrying lulz, changing the ebay logo to a
drab less colorful font, posting pics of the CEOs that
looked like eric cartman's 'innocent buttercup' type of
fakeness when he takes a school picture. They weaponized the
feedback system and returns, micro controlled people with
acute fear, had popups that made you enter your sister's
breast size for "security". It was a beta test of
shadowbanning, later used by other tentacles of the
oligopoly today like youtube. They gave a greenlight to
using economics to slow kill the population. These people...
are fucking dangerous. They know the address, bank account,
ip, mac address, phone number and more of everyone with an
account and are absolutely linked to the shadow government
deep state. Think about it, everything... that is bought and
sold. That covers... the entire economy, whether you are a
car parts seller or a phone seller or a computer or toy or
anything sellers... they ruthlesslessly criminally
monopolized it all through malicious fraud at a scale that
can only be described as crimes against humanity.

You have to experience it for it to make sense I guess. One
word: kafkaesque, others have described it as such, I'm just
repeating it. Others have been driven to suicide by
ebay+amazon's economic attack already I'm sure; I almost
