Such nonsense

You say...."Of course you can win against a automatic bidding program"..... but only as long as you are willing to bid the highest possible price.

Just keep bidding, and bid a lot. You surely will win. Then congratulate yourself for "winning" something, even though you could end up paying more for it than simply buying it from Amazon or KEH.

But that isn't the goal of most ebay shoppers. They want to buy something at a very good price, and when you are bidding against a machine that can advance a bid in a fraction of a second, then you are bound for failure and frustration.

Unless of course, you are willing to bid very high, which might be true for you. But if you like doing that, then go for it.

I will continue to shop the buy it now offers. You know, the ones where the seller has to price things slightly lower than Amazon to make a sale. And where I don't have to compete against an autobot.

Different strokes for different folks.
