Re: snipers

Agree with Terry T and Centsational. If you have bid your maximum amount that you were willing to pay and lost out, then it's game over and you move on to the next item. Whether the over-bidder placed his bid with 5 seconds or 3 days left in the auction, it really doesn't matter. If you had wanted to bid more, then you should have done that the first time.

Or, as Terry says, and you don't want to get into a bidding war, simply use a 'snipe' program, put in your maximum bid, and walk away until you get the notice that you have won the auction, or your bid wasn't high enough. The auctions are proxy bidding, which many people don't know or understand, and your winning bids will only be one increment above the second-highest bidder.
