Hi All

I just saw an auction end screwy.

User "libertyforall" was selling a 1500g Chinga.
At 45 minutes to go, he had 10 bidders, it started at $9.99
with no reserve, then at $176.91
When I looked back after the auction ended,
I was confused to see that the auction had been re-listed
with a "go to item now" link. Now starting at $9.99 with
a buy it now for $425.00


What did I miss?
Didn't he get the bids he wished, and ended prematurely?
If so, why have a reserve?
You can start anything at a penny, and stop before you loose,

Beats me?
