EBay has had another software glitch

EBay has had another software glitch and it's made all sorts of people accidentally opt out of receiving EBay's email advertising by mistake. So, just to help all you nice people out, they've decided to change your preferences so that you permit EBay to send you spam and to sell your phone number to telemarketers, like you really wanted. Time to visit the configuration page. Again.

Hey Steven, what gives?
You're double posting yourself?
That's some bad form, bro.

I take it back, false alarm. This is just the same old screwup, not a new one.
