True, and they made the process fair to the bidder too by not allowing last
minute removals by the seller. A seller always also has the option of
running a minimum bid acceptable auction, i.e. Reserve Auction, which
guarantees they will get the minimum they will be satisfied with or it won't
be sold. Of cousre, Ebay listing fee charged to post an auction is based on
the listing minimum bid. So listing fee higher and a why sellers may choose
to not use a Reserve type auction. Instead use low minimum bid hoping to pay
Ebay less to list while at the same time hoping someone will bid well above
their minimum asking price. Personally I've never listed an auction for less
than I'd be willing to "eat", just seems the ethical way to run an auction
to me. With a 1541+ feedback rating I've been around the Ebay block a few
times...

Went for $52 - good value to the buyer, and good payment to me as well....
Mike good point.  OTOH, that option is part of eBay, and if an item has low
traction, the seller has choices in front of them, legitimately part of the
eBay system....

pretty tough too....

Personally I find that type of action by a seller is what can give the Ebay
marketplace a bad name. Just my opinion.
