I thought everyone used snipes.  I am amazed at people who don't.  Place your max bid, sit back, for get about it.  Wait for e-mail result.
what's the point of using snipes? Huh
i see the only one is to make bid secretly without exposing the bidding action to public. Actually i'd never used snipes.

CIB games! They're pretty cool!

When people claim a copy of a game to be fake (perhaps when citing an eBay auction) without even mentioning what about it confirms it as a fake to them. (And no, I don't mean Famicom pirates with cheesy labels, or other obvious bootlegs)

eBay should introduce what yahoo auctions has.
Most yahoo auctions get a 5 minute extension if a bid was put in within the last 5 minutes.

This makes sniping via tools practically impossible.
It's an option and seller can set up extending 10 minutes or not.

UglyJoe, you are right about "auction process". Kinda gambling, but same time not.

Snipes get you the same stuff you were going to win anyway at less cost.  Snipes don't work on Buy it Now listings, so I won't feel bad for using them and maximising my budget.

I use snipes on occasion.  Mostly just when I know I'll forget about an auction closing and I'm really sure I want to buy it.  I stopped using them with frequency because I sort of figure that if I don't care enough to be online when an item closes, I probably don't need it that badly anyways.

These days, I prefer BIN's anyways.  I've lost too many items on regular auctions because someone went way over market value.  I'd rather someone just list an item (maybe with a Best Offer), and if it's a fair price, I'll buy it.

Sure, but when I bid on stuff I generally bid to win (unless I'm trying to snag a deal).  So, it avoids the final price being driven up for me, only to win it in the end.  Of course, this works both ways - sellers can utilise snipes as proxies and/or reserves if they want to take that risk.  Or they just just set a starting bid/BIN amount.  I won't feel bad for using snipes, I think everyone should use them personally.

Ugh, I hate headaches, too.  I used to wake up with them on occasion until I switched to a huge feather pillow that keeps my neck straight all night (I'm a side sleeper).  It sucks having to play $50 for a decent pillow, but oh so worth it to be rid of months of headaches.

If that helps I might have to shop for a new pillow, too.

Same here, being a side sleeper myself, the morning headaches are inevitable. I'll have to look into a new pillow as well. One thing that annoys me is when my coworker is always asking me for cigarettes. Its like, hell, if you're a smoker, buy yourself a damn pack of cigarettes.  The first day he worked there and asked for one, I figured, why not. Then he asked to use my lighter. I'm like, shit, do you want me to smoke it for you too?!

Lmao, I'm not a smoker anymore, but that was totally me for a few months.  I used to bum smokes (whole packs, even) to people all the time, so I figured it was karma to bum off other for a little while.

You know what annoys me?  Red light cameras.  Never had them when I lived in Wisconsin.  They're all over Chicago.  It sucks.  Instead of being a properly instinctual driver, now I get paranoid whenever the light turns yellow.  Don't even get me started on legal right turns at red.  Gahhhh! Angry
