Pedro is absolutely right, of course.   Which doesnt help one feel better 
about being sniped at all.

There really isn't an etiquette on this stuff yet, so I have a personal rule. 
   I will place a 'bookmark' bid early in the process - it only seems fair to 
tell other bidders that I have an interest.    After that, I snipe with a 
clear conscience.    It just somehow seems underhanded to place your first bid on 
a topic with only 3.5 seconds left in the auction, but that is just my 
opinion.
