    It's 'cos everyone uses bots to bid to the highest price they can afford, as
    soon as anyone else tops their bid they bid the next increment. All it
    needs is two or three committed (should be maybe) and competing bidders and
    prices sky-rocket .. as you spotted .. ;)

    Well indeed but it doesn't make it any less pathetic!

    Fucking stupid way to use eBay. Only by bidding personally at the end of an
    auction can you hope to keep the price down.

    Absolutely .. If I lose an auction, it's generally 'cos it's gone over what
    I actually want to pay .. which can be way different to my budget .. ;)

    IMHO these bots, and the ebay auto-bid feature, have caused more grief, and
    higher prices, than their apparent usefulness appears to warrant. I say
    don't use them.
