I have been with Ebay for years and learned to put up with their odd little annoyances because in the main, I rather like it, but they have finally gone too far. I logged on today to find the landing page suddenly filled with large images of - as far as I can gather - things I 'might like' based on past searches. Not just the usual strip at the side of the page, but totally filling it. I found it hugely intrusive - it really is in your face - and totally unhelpful. I don't actually need any help. I know what I want and am perfectly capable of searching for it. I am neither an idiot nor a six-year-old child. I searched for some way of switching the 'feature' off, but there is none. Invited to 'edit' these 'suggestions', I typed in words to the effect that I wished it to go away. I was told that no suggestions matching my request had been found and the pictures disappeared. Peace at last! But when I returned to ebay later on I was met with the same bleeping thing all over again. I will now spend my afternoon off searching for a reasonable alternative to ebay. If this rubbish doesn't disappear within a week I will close my account for good. I've rated them two stars just for this experience (normally I'd give them a 4). I don't believe there is any malicious intent, just a bad, mad and ill-considered idea.
