Auctions have become pointless
3

Back in the day it was possible to have some fun bidding on ebay auctions. And every once in a while, you ended up getting something you wanted, at a really good price.

But with the advent of auto bid and sniping programs, it has become virtually pointless. It all comes down to "your auto biding program vs mine." Nothing really happens until the last ten seconds of an auction, then a dozen bids get tossed out by the programs and someone wins.

I think most people today just shop the "buy it now" offers. You can't outbid a machine, so why even bother to try?
