Default Miata Market Place?

Does anybody know what this is exactly? It looks like it's just a spot that some guy is posting crappy ebay auctions. If the site is getting money from this, then that's cool, but I don't personally see the usefullness of it yet.

Yea, seeing the word Ebay in two different places on the same page just wasn't enough. Now, we have three.

Edit: it's on there 5 times!

Cool. I didn't even notice that.
See what happens when all you do is hit the new posts button.

can we please change "rims" to "wheels". I'd really like this place to be void of MTV watching, teenage ricer garbage.

I'm pretty sure it's just a bot which scours ebay Motors for listings containing the word "Miata" and certain other keywords, and then links them here. Have you noticed that nobody (except perhaps the mods) actually has permission to start a new thread in those folders?

My guess is that eBay pays a certain amount of money for each clickthrough from this site. Pretty clever, if you ask me. Same basic concept as a banner ad, only less annoying.
