eBay profits off 29%

Apparently the great fool theory is disproven. eBay profits fall 29% in a proof that you probably can't fool all the people all the time with overpriced second hand merchandise sold at auction.The company plays this off as a sign of economic weakness. If that were solely true wouldn't you think people would be buying more secondhand crap when the economy is bad?
