Okay, I re-read my post. Let it be known:
1) I am not trying to attack anyone in particular. Sorry if the original post sounds like it. I know 99,999% of the people on this forum is MORE knowledgeable than me and I've learned a lot from here.
2) I am writing from a BUYER's point of view. (I sell things too, and as a seller, I think the OPPOSITE - the more exposure, the better).
Everybody likes great deals and no one wants to pay a lot of money if one doesn't have to. Obviously, no person in their right mind is going to say, "Excuse me Sir, but the Toyota you are selling is underpriced. Please raise it up to the fair market value so I can buy it. It's not fair to you that I ripped you off."
It is good that fellow members look out for one another, especially on a nice build. At the same time (from a potential buyer's point of view)
, when one is posting a listing, it invites other members to the game and now we are bidding against each other (though, I'm sure a few already knows about it). Of course the items will reach the true market value and the person with the most money wins. But wouldn't it be nice to get it at a lower price than the higher market price?
If I am a seller of a bike part, I want a BIDDING WAR going. Maximum profits.
If I am a buyer of a bike part, I don't want anyone to know about the item.
Yes, I guess eBay is a double-edged sword. I, like many of you (in the closet) are mostly bargain hunting buyers.
Letting people know of a posting is nice, but when it's your turn to buy, you will think the same as me. Win some, lose some, I guess. More winning is better.
Aaaaawww... hes gone home and taken his ball with him.
JUST as I WAS getting INTO my STRIDE...
Nice reponse. Good way to let others know you barely made it through primary school.
