I was bidding on an item I want, and I’ve gone up to the maximum price I’m willing to pay – but the current highest bidder already had a higher maximum, so he automagically outbid me. That means that all I’ve effectively done is increase the cost of the item by about $10 for some random person I don’t even know. I feel guilty.
Is there a way you can check what a person’s current maximum bid is set to? I couldn’t find it, and if I had know his was higher, I never would have bid. Ho-hum. Bad Nick!
