So why do ebay staff ignore complaints about shill bidding?
I have pointed this type of action out to ebay and they refused to
investigate.
They did agree to stop hiding all of the user names of people so they
couldn't
be accused of facilitating a criminal offence. ebay do turn a blind eye as
so
many people use friends, family and have two accounts.
ebay know who they are but are not willing to act in my experience. That
seller must have had some disagreement over fees with them to take it so
far.

When did they did agree to do this?

The user names of bidders are still obfuscated as far as I can see.
