Ray and Nicole Ward, a brother/sister production team at Opalite Media, have announced the upcoming release of their documentary short "TAKE HER DOWN: The eBay Cyberstalking Scandal" on April 25, 2024.

The documentary features interviews with law enforcement, journalists, and eBay resellers, highlighting the role of top executives in the 2019 cyberstalking scandal that targeted Ina and David Steiner of EcommerceBytes, seeking to change their reporting through intimidation and gain their assistance to unmask the identity of Fidomaster/unsuckEBAY, a frequent commenter and source who also sparked the ire of top executives at the company.

The filmmakers say they were particularly interested in the reaction and impact on eBay sellers because of the broad implications the story has for people that power large platform companies, and how these companies respond to external criticism.
