Wanted to ask this to fellow domainers who are active at GD auctions. Bidder 2739899 - I am calling it a bot, because I have crossed paths with this bot before and so did some others as apparent in this discussion. It was capable of putting a bid with only a few seconds left and had been doing it tirelessly for one and a half hour till it reached a couple of dollars below my maximum proxy bid. The domain I was bidding had 5 bidders in the beginning. The bot entered only after the price reached mid XX and then kept chasing my maximum proxy. For the last one and half hours it was just the bot that kept extending the auction endtime. While it kept pushing the price and auction endtime, the domain was visible to all human bidders for one and a half hours but not a single human saw the value in the domain expect the bot. This made me realize that I overvalued it and that it was a mistake in my judgement to put 3XX max proxy bid on it. Expensive lesson for me, I guess. Also, FYI it had a GD appraisal value of lower XXXX. How often does this happen ? I guess my question boils down to.... Recently, has it been possible to win a domain quite below ( not just few dollars ) your max bid at GD auctions ? If this type of behavior or pattern is rare then I would assume I had been just unlucky. But if this has been happening to all of us, all the time then this is bad news.
