I totally agree with you. The time to bid a $100 or a $1000, if you want the package badly enough, is at the end, at closing time. Anything else just ruins it for everybody else. This Mystery Auction bidding is not rocket science. It is a Dollar auction, you bid in Dollar increments, watch the auction progress, and at the end, put in the highest price you are willing to pay. What is so difficult to understand here????
