Your comparison is to me like comparing apples and oranges. Offering a lowball
amount to a widow or even to an older ham or anyone else is morally wrong.
Buying items at an auction is fair for the seller and sometimes fair for the
buyer. Personally I buy and sell a few things to keep a little money flowing in
the hobby. I've even shipped a few items to oversea locations and in each case
the buyer was a collector and user.
The "Golden Rule" comes into play here also.

I like a bargain at least as much as the other guy -- but how far is this
picture from the "swindling the SK's widow" scenario? I do hope that the
other bidder provided good homes for those rigs -- in the United States,
and preferably in his own shack.
