the ebay song!  
freakin' hilarious!

so i was on the phone with paypal and they put me on hold. i hear this familiar tune come on and it was the boy band song that everyone knew... oh but no... wait! it's not! i couldn't believe what i was hearing suddenly and sniggered all through waiting time!

so i had to find it on the internet.

am guilty of being a sniper myself.

lol! they should have a rule against snipers! im a victim myself... grrr...

i actually emailed them before on suggesting modifications on the bidding system, perhaps when a new bid is put in very near to the end, it automatically extends it. And all i got was a canned response....zzz

if you can't beat them, join them! i was also a victim in the past! =)

seriously, extending the auction wouldn't work because the auction would never end.

besides, if you had put in your absolute highest bid, snipers will not be able to win anyway. the problem is people put in what they hope to win at, and not any higher, thinking that they will put in another higher bid if they get outbid. that is not advisable. always put in the absolute highest, and if you lose anyway, you know it was beyond what you wanted to pay.

snipers who put in a bid not high enough would also not win. ultimately, it boils down to the amount of the bid.


personally, the biggest advantage of sniping is that i lock it into my sniper site and then i can just forget about it. i used to snipe manually - sometimes i would forget to be online at the end of the auction!

ps. bidding too early drives up the auction price unnecessarily as well... it's not a good way to bid! =)

true, but then again, putting the absolute highest bid immediately, kills half the fun of an auction! :P

teehee! i used to get such a rush at the end of auctions but it was just too much stress and trouble. these days, i don't want fun anymore, i just want the item! BINs are still the best. =)
