Well, there's at least one other list contributor on that bidders list,
and one list lurker that I know of. But even if there are no bids, some
bidders use the technique of bookmarking and then bidding near the end, so
you *never* know.

I will sometimes post ebay URLs for stuff that has already closed, but I
figure if somebody on this list is 1) willing to use ebay, and 2) looking
for something specific, they're already actively searching ebay, and
there's no reason for me to "help" them and risk pissing off others who
had hoped to get the item for a reasonable bid.
