    I made some 'dimes' but not a ton. Now I guess I just need to do a little housekeeping. Who to use.. Who to use... ?

    Have they given any indication on future? Are they done or just re-organizing? I haven't seen the article.

    They are selling off a little at a time is what I heard on CNN.

    Looked at my stats this month and sure enough have one reversal and one extended.

    Go figure.

    This has got to be my worst month ever...

    The reversals and extenders have me in the red even with the DAMN sales!

    Its those big monster orders from StreetBeat. THEY SUCK BIG ONES!

    Made a few sales with those guys a couple of years ago, and got all excited. Since then, all I have done is sent them thousands of click-throughs with zilch the result. I say good riddance.

    Same goes for Zainy (The peaceful Toy Store). They dumped me a couple of years ago, filed for Chapter 11, sort of came back, invited me back again, I said no - (thank God.

    Now I see the Zainy signs out along the side of the road every weekend, offering "going out of business" saving of up to 70%. Another good-riddance! Or Hasta-La-Vista or Aufweitersehen or whatever...

    Maybe this time around Overstock will get the right price for the entire inventory of eToys/KBtoys and the Zainy items too. Damn venture capital firm running these programs are blood sucking scumbags milking the carcuses for 2 years in a row. The furor will die down when the perps just turn off tracking so reversals don't even come into play.

    FREE traffic and unincumbered sales are what these guys wanted all along since eToys folded. Bezos tried to bilk Overstock as a prime 3rd party fullfillment center now they get to work over Toys-R-US till that one is in chapter 11 too.
