I still like ebay for both buying and selling, and most folks I've had dealings with have been a real pleasure to know, but there are days when my patience is tested. Three things that have happened to me in the last week or so: (a) The guy who bid *way* under the reserve for an item I was selling and then hastled me with emails asking why I wouldn't sell to him at that price. (b) The other guy who sent me an email saying he'd put in a fair bid (1 pound for an item that eventually sold for twenty times that price) and then berated me for the (in his opinion) high postage charges I quoted (in spite of the fact that I said clearly that I gave the cost of insured next day delivery as default as that's what most buyers seemed to want, but would happily use other methods if asked). (c) And this is the prize one. I was bidding on an item with a starting price of 35 pounds. I put in an upper price of 45 just to be on the safe side, but I thought my bid of 35 should be enough because the seller had three *absolutely identical* items next to it in the listings (all scheduled to finish at the same time), none of which had a bid. Guess what some newbie to ebay did? Bid on the item I'd already bid on, pushing up the price, whilst not bidding on the identical items that didn't have a bid against them. I still got the item, but thanks to this jerk, at a higher price than I should have paid. Anyone else met up with similar morons on ebay?
