This highlights one of the perhaps unintended repercussions of one of the
many recent Ebay changes. You can no longer kibbitz to bidders that they are
making a bad investment.

While kibbitzing may be laudible in cases of outright intentional fraud or
gross mistake, it may just be troublesome interference in cases like the
present one, where only bad judgement seems to be the culprit.

Many a local antiques auction sees $9.95 HomeGoods items selling for over
$100.00, but no person without an interest in the sale would interfer during
the bidding. Perhaps some sadistic informing afterwards.
