Gosh, that's quite accusatory! I am a retired, 60 year old woman from West Sussex in the U. K. I have been using Gixen for about five/six years and I have to say, I've found it brilliant for getting most of the items I bid for. I've missed out once, because I put a bid in about 10 minutes before the auction ended and a couple of times when my bid wasn't high enough. Other than that, it's been brilliant and I've been very happy with winning items easily. The guy that runs it is super-engaged and I feel sorry for him that he has to endure these rather malicious comments, quite frankly.
