I think of this as the progression of an ebay shopper. When your young and just getting started on ebay you just get caught up in the excitement of the auction and keep bidding. when your old and bitter and have lost too much, you just snipe the crap out of the auction to get what you want.

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Which helps you avoid bid-up from the type three (or C) people that will leave it alone until you bid.

Normally I'm lazy now. BIN, or put in 1 bid and walk away. Can't be bothered to watch until the end.

programmatic bidding: set it and forget it

Sometimes I'll put down a "scare off the bottom feeders" bid upfront if real monies are involved.

I use buy it now and best offer for most, if not all, my purchases.

It puts the hands in the air or it gets the paint again.
