Never Believe Anything You Read At Auction News Sites

BBspot, a great geek satirical news site, wrote a satirical story about eBay implementing a one-click bidding feature. I mean, I have a hard time believing that people can read stuff like this...

Users like Harold Sweiss have been ecstatic about the new feature. "I've been trying to purchase a copy of Vanilla Ice's To The Extreme on vinyl for several years, but I kept getting outbid at the last minute. But now, with one-click bidding, I finally got my prized possession, and I only had to pay $1,454,248.23!"
...and still take the article seriously. Or maybe they just didn't make it that far.

Just the same, the article was quoted as a news source in not only one, but two articles (screenshot of the latter in case it goes down).
