Do you also hate shops with price tags? And record stores? I think that's what discogs is going for. Personally, I hate auctions because you can end up spending way more on something when (sometimes) randomly you end up in a stand off with someone, and you get sucked into spending more than you originally intended. Both auctions and buy it now get inflated. I'd rather have buy it now and just choose to ignore ridiculous prices when posted. Plus I'm disinclined to figure out how to place bids in the final nanoseconds of auctions. I usually get snaked by someone more tech savvy than I, which makes me long for old fashioned record stores. So, yeah, I'll often gladly pay an inflated buy it now price for something I want particularly badly to avoid the annoying sport that online auctions have become.
