Someone with 434 feedback and history of vintage stuff bid the auction 
up against a bidder with  private auction info.  I suspect the Private 
guy was a shill, as the only information that is shared now is the 
general history of bids for your opponent, and the count (if not private).

So concealing that history and count is the way the shill can obscure 
their identity.  So still stinks.  I suspect that Mr. 434 didn't know 
what he / she was dealing with and was lucky not to lose > 202.50 worth 
of their money and a lot of time.
