I have had an intense dislike for Whitman and her "dishonest policies" when she ran Ebay - for a long time.
"The way I ran Ebay" - as the CEO - makes me a success! - Does it?
Rigging the 3 card shuffle - No contact numbers, no customer service, formula emails by a hopeless predictive auto-responder; and the all under the guise of "We only run the site - and we don't get involved in the interactions" excuse for not providing any customer service.
That all pumps up profits - by minimising expenditure.
So the global trade in FAKES really kicked in - with Ebay trafficking in 30% of the words fakes...
Meg Whitman rigged it for Tax Avoidance - so that the Ebay head office was in California - AND the head quarters were in Bern Switzerland - thus shovellling gobs of money into her own hands, instead of "Broke and Bankrupt" California - that she was she said, intent on saving.
She also intended to "save California" by giving tax breaks to people like herself - so she paid none and everyone else paid double..
The other way that Ebay was "run on the scum" level of cheap by by providing virtually NO security to the site - now it's hacked and phished by the squillions for millions.
Shill bidding is NORMAL and illegal, and the people who run Ebay (i.e. Whitman) did nothing about it, so that people buying stuff were getting scammed by the seller or their network bidding against themselves.
The purchasing of penny credits - for getting "feed back reputation" by selling and buying worthless and non existant "fluff" so that one could trump up "I am a great seller with 99.9% positive feedback" on 10,000 items, for selling little more than the cash for that - and then they could start to move some big ticket items - that after taking the money - never got delivered....
Meg Whitman was only too happy to make money from other peoples deceit, misfortune and corrupt pratices; and she would never get the bad sellers thrown off the site - no matter how many people had reported them for theft and criminal activities etc.
Ebay has earned a bad reputation for giving the police and consumer protection services the run around.....
Organised rings of fakes and counterfeiters worked through Ebay and unless it became a huge public embarrasment for them or they were court ordered to take action, the people who managed Ebay never once pulled the crime gangs from Ebay.
Meg Whitman profited from all of this.
And you can see it in how she operated with her house keeper.
First she decides to go into politics - so she fires her housekeeper with the forged papers.
She and her husband KNEW she was an undocumented worker.... so when caught out, they said "OH we did not know that her papers were forged"
That was fine until the lawyer pulled out some Social Security type papers with Whitman's husband's signature on it.
Whitman spouted all this shit "Oh the maid was like our family - we cared for her so much"...
So when the opportunity arose to help her get US citizenship - did she? Nope Whitman kicked her out on her ass on the street - for political expediency and when Whitman got nailed on all the issues, she says, "The maid should be deported" - and then when the string of lies and deceit and nastyness did not go over very well with potential voters - Whitman back pedaled again by saying it's a federal issue and nothing to do with her...
There was the womens conference in California - and in the video Meg refuses to pull her never ending stream of wall to wall, 24/7, all media, saturation NEGATIVE advertising - and the women - all 14,000 of them...... well Whitman showed her true, "nasty and stupid" colours - and they booed her......
I just loved this bit in the video....
2.37 - 2.45.
Meg Whitman was at a womens conference.
She was the only woman on stage.
There was 14,000 women in the audience
And they were booing her.
This guy has an interesting take on the situation.
Sleazy in business - equals sleazy at home - equals sleazy in politics.
So goodbye Whitman.
