If there are anywhere from 2-5 days left in an auction, WAIT TO BID! What in the world is going on? One is merely ruining the prices for all of the other bidders and driving them needlessly sky-high, and prematurely at that!
A 2-year-old Banana Republic shirt that was listed at $0.95 had 5 days left. I checked again with 2 days left, and there had been 3 bids, driving the price up to $2.95. Now, in this case, $2.00 seems paltry, but don't you agree that, with such an amount of bidding time remaining, these three bidders had needlessly jacked up the price? Thoughts?
(I promised Jesse I'd give her a shout-out: we vented to each other about this recently.)
