"Ebay" = "eBay"

On the merchant links at the top of the page, eBay is shown as "Ebay". I think the proper casing eBay is "eBay".

On their site, they refer to themselves as "eBay", yet their logo is "ebay"

So the "Ebay" link actually directs us to "eBay"? And all this time I was avoiding that link thinking it was some cheap, knock-off site.

Little known fact-- the original name of the site is Be, as in the company that made the BeBox computer. When the computer-making part of company went defunct, they just pig-Latined the name.
