    developer support, api's and amateur hour...

    Bit of a rant but surely I can't be the only one out there getting really annoyed by just how slack/amateurish/sparce /vague some developer support areas are from big companies.

    What sparked this all off is trying use the eBay developer site, cue mixed content warnings,missing elements (seriously, their forum is missing the bootstrap css file. It's a 5 second check), embarrassingly slow site performance and general flakiness of trying to test the api. (that said their 6(!) years old api reference site seems to move quickish though though it's all over the place).

    And don't even get me started on Google adwords api... If you're not using one of the sdk's, then you're a third class citizen and don't need helpful hints like correct case or explanation of nesting/linking..

    Surely I can't be the only one annoyed about this?
