  It's illegal to (for example) send my friend "sartoris1" email saying
"hey Doug I see you're bidding on that lot of DEC processor
handbooks...I really want 'em and was gonna bid, but if you really
want 'em I'll back off.."??

  Does that really constitute collusion? If so, then I believe this
is one instance in which the letter of the law doesn't faithfully
represent the spirit of the law.
