Stupid. Buy bids?, clock resets a million times. I thought 30 seconds means just that, but on these crap sites it could mean hours. I call it false avertising.....Yeah just buy bids and get it for $3.00. But wait, it going to cost you 500 bids, and to watch the clock reset itself, talk about a waste...Hmmm what a deal!

So, in other words, you'd rather lose an auction to someone who places on bid with a fraction of a second left on eBay? That's why the clock resets. If it's an autobidder vs. autobidder situation, it's whoever has setup the best strategy. Do you start bidding early and take the chance of running out too early? Do you setup your autobidder to start later in the auction, but maybe the bidding never gets to what your minimum is?

As has been said countless times, if you don't like it, don't use it. But don't slam a website just because you don't like the premise of it. That's just dumb. Millions of people don't like the NBA. But you don't see people saying, "NBA.com is a crap site."

Folks, this stuff has to be paid for. Paying for things costs money. The auctions with reserves on them make up not only the price on that particular auction, but also the ones that don't have a reserve and sell for pennies on the dollar. There's also hosting costs, legal costs as well as taxes that have to be paid when you're a business. Especially in California. But again, if it's not your cup of tea, then don't go there.

I don't have an issue with them making money as long as I understand how they are "getting my money" and exactly what my chances to get nothing to show for my money are.

I don't mind taking a chance of losing once I figure out what my odds are.

if there is one rifle and I have 24 bids, chances are pretty good that one of the other guys out there would have 200 bids to dump on the one rifle and flip the auto bid on.

truth be told, if I were to play I would want to be the guy with 200+ bids and auto bidding

OnTargetAuctions IS a stand-up site. I apologize to Ken over at OTA for blasting his site prematurely. In my defense, if it is a defense, in my line of work, I do not take a "wait and see" attitude. If I see an infringement, I blow the whistle immediately (and loudly) to call attention to the problem and correct it right hen and there. This was learned the hard way! I used to be a more laid-back wait and see type guy, until I was involved in some legal issues when contractors claimed "why werent we informed earlier? And also to my defense, I did try to contact OTA before I made my post, they just didnt reply in what I thought was a quick enough manner.
Again, I would like to publically apologize to OTA and would like to ensure everyone that OTA is a standup site. I will continue to visit their site.

I checked out these penny auction sites awhile back... and decided I will never play that game. to me it honestly feels like buying raffle tickets except the last person to turn in their ticket wins the item.
