I'm sure some items have multiple users of gixen sniping on them. I recommend some simple logic for the bid system to be implemented:
If subscription member AND a free user has a snipe in for the same item, do not process the snipe for the free user.
More incentive to buy the (cheap) subscription! More fair for subscribers!

I very much doubt there are very many cases of this... there are a great deal more auctions on Ebay than there ever will be Gixen users, unfortunately.
I also doubt that even if it did ever happen that trying to explain to a free service user that they lost because they had not subscribed would achieve the result that you predict. _________________ Mark
