Ebay cancelling reward bucks program for bulllion buyers

Why would eBay single out just one category of collector purchases to be exempt from it's popular eBay bucks reward program? The cancellation announcement was sent by email only to eBay bucks participants and is not included on the general eBay announcement bulletin board. There are so many people who buy bullion on eBay that an independent website which publishes weekly average eBay selling prices was created by bullion collectors.

As always, eBay is committed to bringing you amazing deals on gold and silver. However, to do so, we can no longer offer eBay Bucks for purchases from the Bullion category within Coins & Paper Money. This change will take effect October 1, 2011. To learn more about earning and redeeming eBay Bucks, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page. And remember that you can always tell whether an item qualifies for eBay Bucks by looking for the earn amount below the price on the item description page.

As of October 1st, eBay customers who buy coins from the bullion category will no longer be awarded their 2% eBay bucks rewards.

Why are they treating purchases of coins any differently than purchases of antiques, sweaters or lamps? Is eBay under pressure from the banking cartel? It is hard to believe that the antiques, sweater and lamp cartels have no power over eBay.

Anyone got an explanation for this?
