Does anybody listen any more?

I said it does that *SOMETIMES*.

In other words, it isn't consistent.

In fact, I've looked at the *SAME* auction, and I've seen it change in a few

It's just like their search function that silently and randomly removes some
of your search criteria without telling you, or the fact that search for IDs
and vendors is still broken 4 years after I filed an extensive bug report on it.
