    I out bid this looser like 5 minutes before the auction ended and look at the harassing email he send me. this dork dont understand how ebay works. He must think its like pistols at dawn, well fool its all out jungle warfare, you snooze you loose! HA!

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    hey dude you are a snake! you waited until 15 seconds before the auction closed to outbid me i really appreciate it! i needed that tranny for my daily driver! it wasnt an upgrade or a toy it was a necessity and id have been happy to outbid you fair and square but you chose to do it the wussy way! have fun with your new tranny!

    Too funny. I have never had this happen before! I am thinking about forwarding it to ebay or somthing. Does anyone know if I can get back at this freak?

    What a bonehead. Is he trying to make you feel bad for buying it (this is for my daily driver)? Hehe. I got a kick out of that.

    <font color="blue"> If you don't snipe on E-bay ... you'll hardly ever win ! It's the poor saps who can't figure out how to better their odds ...they deserve it ! It happened to me twice this week and I was right there dropping my bid in with like 10 seconds left ...And still lost ! That's the breaks sometimes ! </font color>

    I can usually beat the sniper but I was on my sisters dial up and its way slower to refresh than the cable internet I am on at home. I do have his email address, maybe I sould sign him up for a couple hundred free emails a day fom great places like iwon.com...hummmmmm

    There use to be a service called sniper I think. It was for just that. They would wait till the last couple seconds of the auction to place a bid in your behalf.

    I just tried to search for it, but can't find it. I'm sure there is something out there like it still.

    There is... you pay them a fee to bid for you... last I heard if eBay detects it you will be banned if you are linked to it...
