In reply to Gary Nash, Oct 1, 2005

right and it seems that auctions actualy go hire in prices when the price start very low. It seems that it become a chalenge within the bidders and they just want to win the auction no matter what. a bit like gambling.

I can't tell for sure, but you have to factor in the "bidding"
mentality. I mean, you haven't lived until you have tried to buy
something on eBay by "watching" an auction and having your finger
on the return key ready to bid 30 seconds before the bidding is
over. I've done this, and if you really want something, you go for
it.

Personally, I try not to bid higher than I'm willing to pay, but it
happens more often than not.
