Isn't it great?
Not only are we bidding against legitimate bidders, we are bidding against known bogus bidders - now some believe we should bid against hypothetical bidders or situations.
It is the what if factor -
What if someone wanted to bid more.
I dig the hell out of this thread Richard. You are so busy grasping at straws and want to do your damn best to define the what if scenarios without dealing with the problem that you actually have.
Here is the what if you should be dealing with -
what if domainers on and off this forum are reading this thread and
what if those people are reading the same response you give (a hypothetical scenario in an attempt to define an actual problem) and
what if everyone can read through the cloud of bullshit and pool is going to do nothing to eliminate bogus bidding and
what if everyone gets the message that there is a real trust factor at stake here and that trust factor is losing trust in Pool.
That is a real result to a real problem all the while Pool wants to continue blowing smoke up someones' ass.
