Yes, somebody sniped those Cote D'Ivoire Mei Fa's i've been drooling over on eBay.... curses, foiled again! I have now bid on "Texture", the silver ones. My eBay name is missing-ink, so PLEASE don't snipe those!
Good luck on not being sniped to other folks... if only LHC folks were the only ones on eBay, we'd never get sniped!

Well...just...poop :( I sure hope you get the other ones!

I promise it was not I. :(
While I have been known to snipe, I would
not knowingly do it against one of you if I knew
you were bidding on anything.
However, there is an item right now which I hope is
not any of you holding the high bid on,
but I plan to snipe it.
has me worried, but I'm crossing my fingers that it
is not who I think it is...I may pm this person just to be sure.
If it is that person, I won't snipe it.
The best advice I can give is not to tell anyone what you
are bidding on, because there are many lurkers just
dying to see what you've bid on.

ugh, that stinks, Dee!
hey everybody on LHC, don't snipe me on the PEWTER Mei Fa's!

magpiedee, i see on ebay that there is still almost one whole day left on the Cote D'Ivorie Styx?
am i delusional?
dee, i don't think anyone sniped you -- you still have plenty of time to bid again. snipe means to outbid at the last possible second.
you can bid again or use the buy it now

Bleh. That really stinks. I recently got sniped on some gorgeous beads I was bidding on to make hairsticks out of, and I was so upset I couldn't sleep that night.
I don't think I'm cut out for Ebay... seems like the only way to beat the snipers is to BE a sniper, and I haven't got that kind of time or attention span.

February 25th, 2003, 04:21 PM
