Default Some greedy people out there

I can't understand what the mindset is of people that list items on e-bay for an auction with a low start to actually get bids on an item then buy the item back because evidently they didn't think it was going high enough. I know of at least one person that has been doing that and in the mean time he is padding his own seller rating in doing so. Then after the items sells it shows back on there with an outragiously high buy it now price. I thought the point of placing things on e-bay was to sell the item on an "auction" format and actually try to sell the item and not trying to find the lonely soul that just has a weak moment and commits to a high price item. When you see items on the auction site for over a half a year it makes me wonder why would one tie up there money in an item when it could be put to better use in other areas. Maybe it is a new format to show people that mindset "See what I have and if you want it you will pay through the nose to get it". It gets frustrating to go to e-bay and see that 1/2 to 2/3rds of the items are on there months on end and nothing changes. A person has to sift through the items and maybe see a "new" item that someone actually wants to sell for market value and get rid of it. Sorry for the rant, but I had to get this off my chest. I hope the best in everyone's quest to find items to add to ones collection hobby. Take care.
