I don't know about right now, but a lot of times people will do that when eBay runs some sort of promotional pricing. They'll throw up a ton of auctions quickly to get the discounted listing rates, then fill them in when they have time.

Spot on. UK 5p listing day.



Just out of interest, this guy used to be one of my favourite resellers in the UK before he emigrated to Canada.
