    Nothing up for grabs! You cannot miss out on this once in a lifetime chance to get ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Starting bid is the incredibly low price of 1 DOLLAR!

    Don't be a fool and BID!

    Actually MINIMUM OPENING BID is $2. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Read the rules! :P

    Since I am good for nothing, I think I should have it. So I bid $5!

    That is the bid INCREMENT. *Opening bids* must be a minimum of $2. After that, you can bid in $1 increments up to $19.

    Schloaty...I think you're right. AE is catching the obstreperous bug. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    No loophole. Opening bid and incremental bids are two *different* things. Its simple. ***Opening bid*** can be no lower than $2. Period. AFTER THAT, the ***incremental bids*** can be $1 until the item hits $19. Got it??

    Stop being difficult...this is hard enough as it is... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
