What is your ebay name?
I have recently bid on a few things and won and on one peticular ocasion I found out the guy I sniped the auction away from was a fellow forum member.
So I would like to offer my name and hope all will do the same so we can know who it is we are bidding against or buying from.

"What happens on ebay stays on ebay" . . . . . . .
I never tell me ebay identity to anyone . . . . period. You just need to make a bid you're happy with and wait and see what happens. It doesn't matter who's toes you might step on, it's not personal . . . . . it's ebay . . . . . .
If somebody is willing to pay more than me . . . . . so be it, they will win.
Believe it or not it causes more problems when people try to "play nice". . . . . . . seen it before. . . . JMO

That's a good point. However, there have been things I have thought of bidding on but didn't for whatever reason, scams or whatever. If I knew it was someone that was a regular on one of the same sites I'm on then I may be less reluctant to bid. And don't mind paying a bit more if it's to a peer and not someone that could care less about the sport and only looking to make a buck.
If I get outbid by one of you then cool, I guess you wanted it more than me. No hard feelings.
You got somthin' to hide there 'Crockett?? j/k

Drew my point exactly if you know the seller and trust them you know you won't get burned

If you're really worried . . . contact someone who has bought from them recently by back tracking through their feedback.
Remember for every ebay success story the same seller has had a disgruntled buyer or two.
I had a guy bid way too much for something once and I just didn't feel right about it . . . . so, I refunded part of his money in cash when I shipped it to him !
He still e-mailed me to complain that the part "wasn't quite what he expected it to be".
I had refunded part of his money without him even asking . . . . . and before he even recieved it and HE STILL BITCHED about it !
I love/hate ebay ! . . . . . or is it hate/love ebay ? . . . . .
BTW . . . nothing to hide at all . . . except the good deals I have found !

well ebay ID also helps people on the forum see how trustworthy other forum members are (when buying used stuff)
