Comments: Blogging and Social Networking on Ebay

The only thing with eBay is that the auctions aren't permalinks because there would be no server space for eBay after a while... That makes it a little tougher to keep stuff up there in a social networking kind of way.

But I agree - there are sites out there who just poke fun at items on eBay that are kooky or really really interesting. If they were smart (not that they're dumb) they would start one of these sites on their own, or at least a forums type section. The question is purely capacity - they get so much traffic that it'd make it hard to justify something like that.
