    People are sure getting PO'd at this ebay contest.
    Most of the clues have nothing to do with the answers, and people are really
    going off on the puzzle masters of the game. I must say, I've spent a little time
    there also, and some of the answers are indeed a long stretch, to say the least.
    I've been waiting for an anagram or cryptic, but nothing so far. It all seems
    like random association to me. Oh well, back to a real puzzle! :P

    clueless, so glad to hear what you wrote because I went there yesterday just to see what it was all about and I have to say I felt soooooooooooooooo dumb! I could barely get from 'here to there' on most of them even with the answers displayed.

    Seemed more like a reason to go on e-bay and just meander around hoping to happen upon one of them.... aahhhhhh, the masterful minds of marketing.

    well :P on them. They weren't able to suck me in. I have not a minute to spare after working on this sucker.
    Calgon, take me away! To the jewels preferably!

    A lot of the clues are far removed from the title.

    I think I was on the right track of about 2 clues, but someone beat me to it. People are solving them so FAST. It's kinda frustrating.

    I honeslty don't think they are solving them. I think they are happening upon them. JMHO
