Not sure of your definition of ‘shill bidding’ Maclean. I thought it was where the seller bid on their items using another ID or had family or friends bid on their items for them. Totally illegal, immoral and unethical.

Yes that is what shill bidding is, but I have it on very good authority that eBay track all kinds of social activity to monitor artificial raising of bidding, something that peers on a forum bidding could easily be misconstrued as.

I believe their view is “if you want to sell something to someone you know, do it outside of eBay”.

Just wanted to put the warning out that ots generally not a good idea to share your auction links with people you know.
