Again speaking as a frequent seller, this really isn't the same
thing. Twenty people stopping by to see it is very different from the
same twenty people driving by severa times per day to see if it has sold
yet. One registers interest, the other does not. I personally drop my
prices significantly on a re-list (as well as revisit my auction text
and title wording) if there were no watchers.
