Okay, so I've come here to voice a MAJOR frustration. There are some serious friggin idiots on e-bay. My biggest gripe is when dipsh*ts out there drive the price up on stuff when it's just plain stupid to do so. Case in point - there was recently a Neumann U-47 on the block with NO RESERVE and $5 Starting Bid. Within 2 days, the mic was at $900. I don't even know where the auction closed, but let's all come to a simple realization. Do these people honestly think that if they bid $200 on a U-47 and there are 6 days left in the auction that they will ACTUALLY WIN??? I mean com'on! Here's an idea -- stop bidding! Wait until there's 5 minutes left in the auction and then bid. Who knows, you might get a Neumann for $200. UGGGGHHHH! Am I the only one that get's this? Why are the stupid people making things cost more???!!! I'm sure you have all run into this same scenario and just want to snap... Oh well, venting over! J.
