One problem.....I have gotten so irritated by last minute bids....
when after all I paid for 7 days of bids....that I now pull any item
that does NOT have a bid at 6 Hours before the end (that misses you).
I will also sometimes up the ante rather than pull the item, sometimes
by 5X. This is to discourage last minute bidders. This really works
if you put the bidders on notice in your description that you plan on
doing this. They, then, will decide wheather to "S*** or get off the
pot" as we used to say at the poker table in the old days.
