Quoted from dung:
Well mister downvote, look at this way. You put a big spotlight on this auction. From what people have said others knew about this and were bidding and you just brought them more competition. It doesn't matter if it sold for 10 dollars or 10k your good intentions have a bad outcome for those who learn about relatively unknown deals.
Don't take it personally. A downvote just means I disagree with you. Doesn't mean I don't like you.
If the auction was in Nashville and I was interested, I probably wouldn't have been spotlighting it. But I wouldn't care if someone did. It is one of the many reasons I frequent the forum - to find out about things for sale that I ordinarily would not. Members throw threads up about auctions, craigslist alerts, non-pinsiders selling collections and more - all the time. I am glad when I see them. It is one of the reasons for logging in, in my opinion.
