- Aug 8, 2010It seems to me that the fact that they have exactly the same price, down to the penny, is pretty strong evidence that one of them did copy from the other. Possibly without thinking whether the price made sense. This would be just as true if the price _were_ $233.97, an equally precise figure. Automated price copying is a well-known phenomenon; airlines use it to set fares all the time.

Notice though that it's two different sellers. Are you saying that they each made the same mistake?Wendell WagnerIn a message dated 8/8/2010 9:38:27 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, alanajoli@... writes:
