Is it just me or do they piss others off too? I mean, I know Im supposed to put in my max bid from start, but an items been on for 10 days with no bids, and I just put in £1 higher than starting price with an hour to go, and a sniper came in literally 5 seconds before end of auction and taken it if they had bid with 1 min to go, I would have upped my bid...
Ive checked his recent activity and all things he has won recently have been the same tactic.
If i've been bidding on something for a few days i get so annoyed.
I must admit i have done the same once or twice, but that's only if i've just found a particular item i like.
Half the time i never win it anyway.
But yes, is annoying.
Thanks Lisa, but since I dont like when its done to me, I wont use it to win other stuff.
wheresthehamster- good point! I was bidding on a 99p toy tho but will tell myself it went to some little girl who has no toys (and try to forget that its prob someone who is gonna sell it on at a much higher price)
I usually always bid in last 30 secs unless im out when i just proxy to my max level. Never used one of those automatic things though as i like doing the bidding part myself. I do prefer buy it now auctions though as hating waiting for auctions to end.
