got sniped in that last few sec by someone who had never bid for $2, and again even a 120 WPM typist couldn't have done that.... it was a robot.

So that 2 min auto extension, in such situations is definately no long active/functional policy.
Not necessarily a robot. I usually enter my only bid in the last couple of seconds and don't use software to do it. It's mostly a matter of synching your computer's clock with the auction's site's clock and testing the speed of your internet connection beforehand.
I would totally agree with that BUT but for I was the JUMP bid (+60) in the last 15 sec.....amoung several at the moment consitantly activew other bidders that were go 5 by 10 dollar increments,,,, page was refreshed, plus new bid retyped, buttons bushed/confirmed by a human in that time and from someone who had never bid in the auction.... sorry that WREAKS of ROBOT, and at any rate FAST LAST SECOND sniper BIDS AUTO 2 MIN EXTENION IS CLEARLY NO LONGER IMPLEMENTED POLICY it was for a while.
