    no kidding! I knew of the suit but had heard nothing of it for quite some time. So according to that statement it looks as though he's trying to get the suit tossed on account of nothing specific being claimed by ebay?

    I am not a legal major...obviously!

    I wish him the best, I'd hate to see anything happen to DP but @ the same time I would not condone what ebay claims happened

    I am sure you will find out what is going on with the company at somestage. How long have you been trying to get support for now? How much did the program cost you?

    Ummm....something like little "smiley faces" at the bottom of your site that seem to have come from nowhere when you post up a site for review, or list it in your sig ?:mad:

    Here is another link:
    http://www.courthousenews.com/2008/08/26/eBay_Sues_Alleged_Cookie_Stuffers_.htm

    ..and it's on Wikipedia now as well!
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawn_Hogan

    and another one here (It's all over the place)

    cookie stuffing, which I had never heard of prior to this whole thing. I have not heard of any new developments stemming from this case...of course all the preliminary stuff is motions, filings, etc. Good news is that the forum is still up!! :)

    If they do, maybe I'll get some work done:p.

    It's doubtful that it will close, unless it is seized, or is evidence of some kind, but who knows?
    Every time the database crashes I assume "That's it" anyway.

    Don't understand all the legalese but I know that it spells S-H-I-T. I certainly wouldn't want to go through all that.

    IMHO As a QA Manager:

    It leads back to the fact that ebay has a incompetent QA team, or upper management decided to cut corners with QA.

    On another note...DP is a revenue sharing forum right ? Has anyone ever had any revenue shared with them?
    Maybe I don't understand the concept correctly, but why do they have an option for you to add you adsense Pub-I.D. ?
    Just curious ?
