And I should also mention that in most cases these auctions are between me and one other person, with a few having me and 2 other bidders. Like he bids $20 and I bid $35 (or vice versa) so these are NOT high-end domains with tons of active bidders. That's why I call this "madness" as there is obviously little to no demand for these names outside of me and 1 other guy/gal, but I would bid virtually any amount and he/she would counter it over and over and over. I wanted the names cheap and have enough money to play around with these newbies, so I have taken them up to $300, $400, and in some cases, over $500 before I laughed and let them "win". All for a low-end domain that initially had a high bid of $35. Hopefully this makes you understand my POV a bit better.
