How could this happen? Was no reserve set? eBay 101 continues.

How could this (below) happen? Was no reserve set? Doesn't really make a difference what the bidding starts at, as long as a proper reserve is set. Allowing low bidding allows some to make a low bid just to keep the auction on their possible purchase list.

"Starting the bidding super low, as you mentioned can get you burned. I tried that recently and overestimated the interest in the item, so someone got a $100 (new) luggage rack for $4 + shipping. I should have started it at a low price, but not a "grab my ankles" price."
