The magnificent Flee was generated to allow Joe Public to get rid of "Junk". The fact that some suffer from Bidding Fever is down to the bidder, not the seller or other must haves. Don't matter what rules are stated, someone will always find a loophole so if you don't want to play, don't bid. Ethics go out the window for two bidders wanting a 7/64" Whit die.

I lost out to a guy who had 3 bid attempts in the last 13 seconds......
 
I assumed he/she had a few browser windows open, i dont think the snipping tool would or could have done that ? !!  {:-{ ...maybe it could...i dunno
 
The only reason i know is..... it was a tight auction and there was another intermitant bidder...that broke up the attempts.....maybe im reading too much into it maybe it was a flea bay glitch...
 
It doesnt really matter as all is fair....i was just interested and trying to work out how that could be done  :-))

I always include an odd amount of pennies after a bid, so if I am prepared to spend 40, I might bid 40.29, this way I still have control if someone else puts in a later bid of 40 - or even 40.01 which I have seen too.
