I just wanted to stir up the pot a bit. We haven't had any good flame wars here in a while.
Personally, I don't get into bidding wars. I set a snipe for the max I would pay for an item. If I lose, I still sleep well at night. There will be another one. And another. And yet another.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

[ excellent idea Xaxaxe! ]





I shoved a poll in and a space for any flame war [points].  that way, when everyone is looking here, i can be looking at ebay. :)

Seller has some older Dragons #4,6,9,12 and then some later ones in bulk auctions. Only a feedback score of 1 though so it might be a crap shoot....

To be clear, I wasn't referring specifically to your most recent posts.  However, there did seem to be a large number of them, so maybe there is an issue there.  (I didn't actually look at all of them, who has that kind of time?)  :lol:

Now I know this one is interesting. I do not recognize the bidder. If it is a member here I apologize and I will remember you from now on if you let me know...

This is an interesting item.



As someone ask me to combine postings I will try as much as I remember to....

What's that I see out of the corner of my eye? ... it's a ... a ... a cougar!! And it's bidding on that H1! And it wants it to be shipped in an M-bag!

+++++

I can't believe Diamond Dave has missed this one ... it's in much better condition than the tattered H1s he usually deals in.

Cougie's bids

He's feedback boosting. :roll:

This is one feature of Ebay I don't get.  



How can Ebay allow members to see what another member is bidding on?



Doesn't sound right to me.  The information is out there...but Ebay should not help people spy on each other.

I suppose one person's "spying" is another person's "transparency" — and I'm totally on board with eBay's transparency. Sellers' items are public; buyers' bids are public; feedback is public; user ID history is public; bid history for any item is public, bid retractions are public, and on and on and on ... hell, as long as my credit card number is never revealed, I don't really care if all of my sales and bids are offered to all eBay users as an optional RSS feed (although, granted, my lists would bore most people to tears :)).

And, really, isn't a list of a certain user's bids just an easy-to-read version of what is already public knowledge? Think about it: the same information is already out there, it's just scattered around onto different item pages.

+++++

Sidebar: I'm not sure if this theme will continue, but, if it does, prepare for the infamous Lament of the Uber Collector ("Woe is me; everyone has bookmarked my bidding list"). Ugh. Maybe I shouldn't have brought it up ...
