Forced eBay ID Change?

Actually, they gave ample warning that this was going to happen. It's
supposedly to prevent spammers and other nare-do-well's from culling email
addresses from the member IDs.

I changed mine before the deadline because I knew that I'd wind-up with an
AOL-looking ID if I didn't (like "dorkus1277574")

us using email addresses for our ID's so as to better control the flow of
information to us.

Yes, mine was also changed *without* my permission. IMNSHO, they are
attempting to divert attention from the incompetant operations people.
They are idiots.
