Well this is the first time I saw this post. Explains a decent amount. I had been bidding & was high bidder in its final 12 or so hours. (something like that). Then it was canceled.
Im glad it worked out for everyone. It also worked out ok for me as well that it had been canceled.
So now Ive got a interesting question. If someone buys something from a Lost mail auction. Its technically not stolen. So who really owns it.
