Last week I read the story of how the state of Pennsylvania wants to shut down the thriving eBay auction business of single mom Mary Jo Pletz, which enables her to stay home with her 6-month-old daughter Julia, who has a brain tumor. The Pennsylvania Secretary of State's reason: Mary Jo does not have an auctioneer's license. Having sold 10,000 items on eBay, she is being threatened with $10 million in fines.

The state of Pennsylvania has gone nuts! Or has it?

I commend the lady for finding a way to support her situation.

The last thing we need are more regulations...especially for eBay. They just need to do a better job of dealing with the bad apples. One thing I would agree to is requiring some kind of permit/certificate if you sell over a certain amount of dollars or volume. That would also add credibility to the sellers. I'm sure someone would say that theives would just keep setting up new accounts, but new accounts don't do as well as established ones on eBay.

Seems to be working now. Maybe the site was down.

I'm not taking a stand on this one because I can see both points of view. I just thought it was good food for thought.
