I am a little concerned at the recent postings by our members, stating current auctions that they are bidding on.
Point 1. The rules of this forum page:- "Please do not post links to active auctions or sales sites."
It is my practice to scour Ebay regularly for different & interesting watches including Timex.
I mark the ones I find & watch to see how the bids progress.
I like to bid at the last minute to avoid a bidding war.
Whilst I respect the intention of trying to limit bidding, against each other, It happens that I might have already had my eye on something that another member has posted a claim to. I will then feel like I am being a "A*H" if I want to buy it & place a bid.
Point 2. I don't think it ethical for us to try & limit competition between ourselves, from the Sellers point of view. I certainly would not appreciate getting a low price for an item I was selling, because a group of potential buyers were conspiring to keep the price down.
I have sent emails to other members of the forum to check with them if they are chasing the same item, & as a courtesy, if they spotted it first I may well abstain from bidding.
But on the other hand I might just take the view of "Toss you for it".
Well that's my point of view, & I don't mean any offense to those that have already posted their intention. Consider also that I might not have been aware of the item posted, & you might be adding me as competition.
Rant Over, let's here your "take".
