Yes. Personally I think Miss Manners would find this quite irritating, too. The auction element does play into the name "Offer up". However, given Offerups features. it seems like a first come first serve basis is only fair. I try to maintain that standard, at least. Offer up doesnt provide the same "auction friendly" functions as ebay (i.e. allowing notifications when an item has recieved a higher bid, set time in auctions, Etc.). Some sellers still wait for the best offer and take that, which is fine, to each their own, but it doesnt really allow the seller or buyer the same options to monitor whst is going on as ebay.
