Sometimes I will snipe if I really want something but there isn't much on ebay that is 'must have' for me any more. More often now I put a bid in when I see the item and if it win-fine, if not-no biggie.

I don't have a strong view on this one way or the other. I don't have a great interest in or knowledge of signed items full stop. While it isn't healthy for collecting in general for people to get ripped off, ultimately if they don't do their research then they leave themselves open to this type of thing - whether the seller is aware of the fake or has themselves been duped.

Don't get me wrong, I don't disagree with private individuals getting involved, I just raise the thought for discussion - a moral maze type question if you will. Somewhere down this road is a line not to be crossed, but where is it? Who decides what is genuine and what is fake? How far should one go to prevent a sale, etc.

While I agree that this signature may well be a fake, is this not vigilantism?
