    Doesn't that kinda go against the idea of a silent auction?

    A silent auction is not a secret auction. Usually, at a silent auction there is a bid sheet on the item to be sold. Everyone can see how the bidding is going.

    Wouldnt you want to post the identity bid by bid so that its obvious this auction is on the up and up?

    Thats why I thought this was a joke or a prank

    I am I am sure it is legit but in todays world anything is possible isnt it?

    Like running bids up on gunbroker by having your friends or people you know run it up- with no intention of actually purchasing--- I think they might have even had trouble with people that had more than one ID running their own auctions up

    just seems odd

    GENE----Once again everything is BS according to Gene from Iowa. Give it rest already. Don't you see everyone is tired of you calling foul everytime there is a post that you must be an expert on. Oh wait, thats every damn one!!! Enough already you self appointed know-it-all.----Matt

    Thanks RickN -- Matt has some issues apparently

    I was only pointing out the obvious

    I am sure Mr. Bowen can be trusted to handle all of this but why not show the bids and the bidders as they occur?

    Here is the issue

    It seems to me you either have an auction where everyone submits closed bids and the winner is the highest bidder when they are opened

    or you have an open auction = where everyone knows what the other bids are as they occur - and by whom

    Here we dont have either- just trying to figure that out.

    regards from Iowa

    RickN--- I understand fraud and pranks are a common thing now days but my comments stem from Gene's constant calling BS to everything he finds is above normal. It is not just this post but i have read many of his comments on many threads on this site. He must be the worlds most educated man and done everything better than everyone else. I have found thru his many ney saying comments that if he can't do it or believe it well then it must be BS. I don't like to bad mouth anybody because it just puts me in the same category of what i can't stand.-----Matt
