My background noise in the mornings usually includes the Today Show. Today's episode featured a panel of three including Dr. Nancy Snyderman and they were asked "what bugs you the most about the holidays?". Dr. Snyderman, a prominent doctor, replied "I can't stand the eBay commercials, they are so over-the-top and offensive."! Well, Dr. Snyderman, I am offended by your silly comment! There are many people who make their living on eBay and in this awful economy, there are many people who turn to eBay to earn an extra few dollars to make ends meet. We are not all doctors and/or professionals and quite frankly, your comment was snide and uncalled for. EBay's commercials may or may not be top of the line, but eBay has made an effort to drive business to its site in these horrific economic times. What good can come of a comment like yours? Maybe you should read the newspapers. There were quite a few disturbing Black Friday stories that certainly warranted being spoken about, certainly more disturbing than an eBay commercial!
