Default Ebayer Retracting Bids

I have admitted to retracting bids on auctions for various reasons some times so I am at fault once in awhile and some members always ask people to explain the amount of retractions etc but I think this is pretty insane. 3/1 bid retraction rate over 1 month, 6 month would be 738 if this average keeps going.

Bidding Details

Then the first place bidder has only placed bids 16 times in the last 30 days all on Baseball. I always wonder if this is a shiller even if it is not obvious by the percentage, if all you bid on is Baseball why bid on one FB card its just strange to me and raises a flag.

I had 5 or 6 retractions on my 3 days auctions this weekend (ending yesterday) In 8 years or so of selling I don't remember even havng 1 other retraction. I love how they are always "entered wrong amount". I think people are fishing for auto acceptance, very impatient, other sellers trying to manipulate the market, or they are just d*ckwads who have no life. I can't decide if I need to block retractors now or not as they keep the auctions alive for others and not waste 8 days of my time. I only do BIN/BO anyway so they really can't shill anything of mine.

Ebay must have ended the auction since I posted this thread. I guess it was shilled and somebody reported it.
