But its not what people are asking for (well not all of them) its what people are willing to pay
I think I have sussed what going on with these bids:

The two retracted bids look like someone is trying to find out the higher level of the autobider. I think therefore they could go in at last min knowing what value is needed. I'm not sure as with sniper progammes you don't need to do this?
Yeah, hard to blame the seller for just selling to the highest bidder... they're not "asking" for these amounts.
Anyone who is testing the high bidder should be reported... that is ridiculous.
I only snipe, and that is against the spirit of sniping - Bid once, bid late, bid high.
Does this person not understand proxy bidding? Decide what is the absolute most you will pay, and bid that amount - it's that simple. If the auction ends and you don't win, and you're left disappointed, it means you were willing to pay more, so why didn't you?
