This site was up for two weeks before it became unoperable. The ad claims that they’ve spent $40,000 in work and advertisements for the site. A lie!

Scott’s been busy pleading with people to “watch this space….“. The guy that talks the most, but says so little.
They (ethical2004.com ethical2005.com, and so on) are working on “2nd generation eBay tools”, but some of the links don’t work.
The IRS – http://22.214.171.124/irs.html (notice the link to the Hall of Fame doesn’t work). The working link to Hall Of Fame is http://126.96.36.199/IRS/HallOfFame. Notice that “marble” rates all her auctions a “10″. She and her buddies thought highly of her eBay book on Amazon too, here is a list of reviews. This review is from Scott Samuel, its hilarious!
After reading virtually every tome available on the subject of Online auctions, and being the type of person who will rarely endorse any product whatsoever, I wish to openly state that The Business Guide to Selling Through Internet Auctions by Nancy Hix, is, by far, the most thought-provoking, insightful and thoroughly written book for ANYONE selling in this marketplace.
Virtually every aspect of the auction process is covered, both at a glance and then, explored in depth.
Tips, tools and a myriad of selling systems, all designed for the auction user allow one to benefit fully from the online auction arena, flow from this easy to understand publication.
As the Founder and former CEO of Honesty.com, the official auction counter of the eBay auction site, and having 5 years as both a buyer and seller in the auction space, I rarely will offer up kudos to anything I see in terms of auction-related print.
Furthermore, it’s very rare that I’ll allow my name to be used in conjunction with any product, but in the case of Nancy Hix’ latest book, I feel honored to have been asked to provide a cover quote.
It is truly the best tome I’ve read about the auction world, it’s inner workings and nuances. And it’s also geared towards both the new user and the ‘old-school’ auctioneer.
In effect, it offers something for everyone.

Here’s a breakdown of the “2nd generation eBay tools” ethical will provide:
Item Rating System: IRS (worthless). Discussed at length here, and includes a rant from Scott Samuel using the F word…
Image Hosting – wow!
Thank You Tool – Spam tool for eBay sellers. Right up Scott’s alley.
Category Rotator – “Rotate Categories until you get a bid”. Sounds like a slow way to lose fast money.
jayandmarie’s Relister – Scott paid jayandmarie to use their name in his tools. jayandmarie don’t even use Scott’s tools! They used MarketWorks in the past. I don’t know who they use now. I need to go find that thread on OTWA for more information on that.
jayandmarie’s Scheduler – Not “2nd generation”
HassleFree Lister – “Listers usually suck at listing. This one kicks booty”. Scott’s words, not mine. I think that’s all I need to know to NOT use this tool
The About Us page is updated, instead of 33 employees, Ethical Technologies (ethical2005.com) employs 5 individuals, as well as a bunch of “coders”.
Here’s the Documentation page, obscenities included:
Well, here we are fuck on the documentation page. It looks like we don’t have very much for here right now. I’m debating on how we should lay this page out. We could have a 4-cell grid with 4 sections that the user might most commonly use.
Where do we start?
If you think about it, this section might have to be dynamic as well, because the documentation all depends on how many tools the user has subscribed to. So, one way to go would be to have this page dynamically load little sperts of information for the tools that they most commonly use.
For the “Not-Logged-In” Persons
With this in mind, we are also going to have to have a “not-logged-in” Docs index page. What is going to be in the “not-logged-in” documentation? Obviously no information on any of the tools will be displayed. What we will have instead is…. ? Generic information about logging in? Registration? Basic functionality on the site? well, shit. I just don’t know.
Even the Support page has obscenities:
This is a test paragraph. Fuck. This is a test paragraph for purposes of seeing how the flow of data is on the site when we have content along with the support button in the bottom of the page.
You know… support is a really interesting thing. If you have a lot of it… it tends to look well upon your company. Support is one of the most important parts of keeping your customers happy. That’s why you always see the word “Customer” in from of the word “Support” because the customer deserves support. In this day and age, technology can get to be a hassle. So, we want to make our customer’s experiences the most enjoyable possible.
