Would it be wrong to bid on an item that you suspect of being shill bid to provoke a reaction?

Outbid within two hours by the same id that has been slowly bidding up the auction.0 feedback user. So I reported the auction.

Shill bidder baiting is always of interest here!

Unless it's an item that is in some way embarrassing...

Of course it could be a new customer to the site (We all had to have our first successful bid!) who really really wants that item...
