No criticism to any individual intended - it's to this stupid
thread. On and on about sniping.

I would bet that many persons have tried things like this - I
have. The adrenaline rush for many must be comparable
to day trading or casino gambling, both activities that don't
seem to me to be anything to be proud of, and need I say
that they both tend to set up their practictioners for greater
and greater losses.

Perhaps the popularity of this thread just attests to the thrill
of the eBay adrenaline rush. Realize what activities are
mindless, and curb them.

What I do: Know your limit, Bid your limit, Win or Lose,
and be done with it.
