eBay is forcing users to change from an email address to an alias? This is
the first I've heard about it. I know they won't let you get a new account
and use your email address as they want to control peoples ability to reach
you. I've not seen anything that says that I have to change mine to an
alias. Personally I like that people are able to easily find my email
address on eBay.
