Using Jbidwatcher 1.0.2, I tried to snipe http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200167788140, but Jbidwatcher said:

Sun Nov 04 19:59:58 EST 2007: Snipe failed, as you are disallowed from bidding on polkadotpatty’s items. (1)

I sent a message to polkadotpatty asking why I was disallowed, and (s)he said I was allowed, and welcomed my bidding.

I suspect that the Jbidwatcher message might have been the result of this seller enabling “User ID kept private” in this auction, but don’t really know. The bid history just shows “private listing – bidders’ identities protected” where the bidder name usually shows. Could this be the reason JBidwatcher said I was disallowed from bidding?
