Has eBay already ruined Froogle.com?

What do you think?

I've noticed a ton of eBay results showing up on Froogle.com recently. This is not exactly what I would want out of a shopping experience. IMHO, it's going to ruin Froogle.com in the long run, as eBay users can now easily submit all of their shelf items into Froogle. What do you think?

Noticed that the other day and yes, it looks ridiculous to Google... if people want to go to ebay they will, they don't need a duplicate. I wouldn't waste my resources if I was Google (besides, like I said it looks ridiculous).

I'm not so sure Ebay on Froogle is a bad thing yet. Yeah it's akward looking at the moment, but for someone trying to bring items to the internet marketplace it sure seems like there's some advantage to have froogle scanning Ebay. Its similar to Froogle searching Amazon. Ebay definitely isn't a search company and Iím sure it welcomes Froogles presence.
