eBay minus the scams

I just read about this new site on Solution Watch. It's called gumshoo and it's an eBay search engine that filters out items they fill are junk (I can't seem to find any documentation on how they decide this) and add notices to the top of items they feel may be scams - notes about high shipping costs or negative feedback.

The best part is that is also searches for misspellings. I'm always searching for items spelled in more than one way ... now I don't have to.

Comments:
I've just started using gumshoo too. It's awesome! I get much better search results than from eBay directly. The alerts spot things I never would have noticed myself. So long auction fraud!
