eBay inundated by scripts for $1 holiday promotion

Slashdot has an interesting article about how scripts are trolling around eBay's $1 holiday promotion in order to tip the odds in favor of the cheaters. This whole thing has me thinking: isn't that what black hatting is really all about? Cheating, that is. Sometimes I wonder if I should take a psychology course to establish the correlation between, perhaps, an inner feeling of non-confidence in one's ability to be successful and the drive to crack systems.

Meanwhile, those of us who play by the rules are screwed once again.
