but have they? no. many people who offer stuff for bidding on mailing 
lists usually maintain anonimity of the bidders and the bids.
i'm sure i'm not the only person who doesn't think it's right to be 
announcing who's paying what for whatever item.
...and least of all, most people don't care to see it. 
fair enough, i've argued many times amyself about the use of the delete 
key, *BUT* irrelevant posts about the bids and how much money you're 
scamming for stuff you probably didn't even pay for?
morals, anyone?

yeah. people offered you money, but should you really be exploiting the 
people involved? keep it to yourself. on most lists, people set the deal 
for the auction (or whatever), set a deadline date, respond to bidders 
privately. cut down on server traffic and stuff that people don't need to 
see. keep it to the parties involved.
