Subject: [CR]Re: Ebay Sniping

Okay, what happens when every bidder uses a sniping service? It seems like every time something good comes along, someone figures out how to make money out of it. It's good old American capitalism at work. But I do hate it. It's like computers are great, but why do you pay for virus protection? Couldn't ISPs or computer companies offer this free when you purchase a computer? I have been sniped so many times that I now usually only purchase Ebay items with the Buy it Now offer. On other items, I enter my max bid at the beginning of the auction and just monitor my emails to see if I win. It also gives me satisfaction when someone snipes at the last minute, but don't override my bid. Bidding on Ebay is like playing the lottery, you just can't count on winning.
