You mean discriminate against people with jobs? Or that is to say, discriminate against
people who are actually doing their jobs, instead of surfing the web? Hey, you aready
get paychecks and stuff like that. Seriously, though, wouldn't sniper style software
take care of all of that? The end result would be that you would have to determine what
your maximum bid is, one way or the other. On the other hand, I suppose putting in your
maximum bid is the ultimate defense against sniping anyway, and it is aready available,
even as things are now. When I've already put in my best bid, then I don't mind losing
