Personally, I think it is about time that those running massive EBay stores pay 
their share of taxes. 
When you see someone with hundreds or even a thousand items at a time selling 
on Ebay it can't be 
casual sales, like a garage sale.  Government trying to find those people not 
paying their share of federal taxes and
begin taxing them. They are also cracking down on non-profits that take in lots 
of money to make sure that they 
are really non-profit organizations. So all non-religious non-profit 
organizations must file a new form this month. 
This includes Radio clubs that have 501C-3 status. I expect that local 
governments will be looking into sales at 
flea markets too.  But things like the Dayton Hamvention might be counter 
productive since it brings so much
local business to the hotels and restaurants during those few days. Running off 
the vendors and those hams
just trying to upgrade their stations or sell their excess gear while attending 
other actives would ultimately 
lead to a net loss of revenue.
