    Default I hope GL is watching this site.

    This minimum bid stuff is stupid. I see tons of stuff I'd like to bid on and would gladly pay more than scrap prices for but not the $150 min. GL wants. Why let it go to the big scrap pile when it doesnt sell, and bring pennies when it could bring $20, $30, $40 per lot. I just dont get it?

    I do not think GL cares about any of us, it is bottom line, and if they could, well they would bone us all for a profit.....


    I think they do a good service, but are greedy

    When did that happen I never even noticed. I hate to see this site lose ad. dollars. I started this thread in hopes enough people would speak up and say the same thing and show GL how much they are losing by placing a $150 min on some stuff.

    I would imagine they can look at their auction history and tell what is/isn't selling well. If they keep the format, they are not losing money. .02!
    Don't worry about the size difference

    As far as complaints about GL go, this has gotta be the least critical.

    "Bone us all for a profit?" I'm not a fan of GL by any stretch of the imagination, but puh-leeze. They're a freakin' business. OF COURSE THE GOAL IS PROFIT. If you want to live in a socialist country, move to North Korea and have a happy life without capitalism.

    I think the $150 minimum bid is for EUC items which require additional man hours to process thus the extra cost.

    Yes, but people are also supposed to operate with a sense of morality. Just saying the words "profit", "free market" capitalism", etc, do not excuse bad behavior.

    To be perfectly honest, I do not see how the employees of a lot of companies sleep at night.
