Don't worry about friends, worry about the competition.

Yes, I check the bids of the competition, to see what they found and I
missed. I think I have some pretty good, well refined searches on Ebay,
but I am always spotting things the searches missed that the competition
did not.

By sniping, I can somewhat reduce my chances of having the competition do
the same to me. I have snuck thru a few awesome deals for things on Ebay,
perhaps due to not being spotted by others.

Yes, competition - the collecting world has always had it. Always
will. Live with it, it is part of the game.
