Thread: CigarBid - Auction Etiquette

  1. #1

    Default CigarBid - Auction Etiquette

    I'm fairly new to cigarbid, I've only bid and won two lots from there in the past. I found some cigars today I wanted to bid on, but before I clicked on "BID ON THIS LOT" I saw that the current winner was someone from "APO, AE" and there was a bid comment that read "We smoke 'em in Iraq" Is it wrong to bid against this person? I feel that it is so I did not enter the bid. Would you bid on cigars against someone who appears to be in the military, and is currently serving over seas?

    I would bid. I don't believe everything I read on the internet. There are ways to contribute cigars and other things to the troops.

    I say bid - It's an auction. If no one bids against him. It's not an auction any more.
    The bid is half the fun. Other wise just buy it on CI.

    I would only have one question, how much would the shipping to Iraq be?

    With all due respect for your sentiments, this is a pretty silly question. There is no such rule of "etiquette." There's only somebody who owns the cigars trying to run a business on the other end. We all support the troops but I think most of us also believe in free enterprise.

    Bottom line is, bid. If you happen to win and the guilt becomes overwhelming, then send them to the troops.

    I've been posting off and on since 2006, and I just now get harassed about an intro thread?

    I suppose I should clarify what I was doing. I was cruising cigarbid, hoping to snipe a few good deals just before they closed. This was a 5 pack that the winning bid was a dollar. I'm all about free enterprise, blah blah blah.... but if there's a Marine (or a solider) out there who is wanting to buy his own cigars and it looks like he's going to get a good deal, I just didn't want to be the one jacking up the price. Yes the guy could somehow be scamming and truly is sitting in San Diego relaxing, but since these weren't sticks I went out of my way to find I wasn't to concerned about it. I'm not saying that no one should bid against someone in the military, I have decided that I won't in most situations. Was curious what others would do.

    I agree 100%, and I don't understand why it would be a problem. I pass out alot of good sticks to the Soldiers here on my FOB, but that's just me. If it's really a problem go get a tampon for your tears because there won't be any sympathy coming from me.

    I know! I think a deserve an award of some sort.


    That's why I thought bill was talking to me for an intro. I've somehow flown under the radar well enough to never do a proper intro thread.

    No worries bro, I have a suspicion that all the recognition you could want might be heading your way.

    dauker - I know you know we know you - but - an intro thread for the newer members sure would be awfully nice...

    ...unless, of course, you want for THIS to be your intro thread. In that case - I'm fairly certain you will get that "award" you so richly deserve!!!
