You'd be surprised!, a lot of the times it's probably people who aren't out at work and just sitting at home, and traders.
The amount of times iv'e listed a figure in auction and within 1 minute I get a message off someone asking if I have a buy it now price, and on 3 occasions iv'e had this message off the same person over the space of several months. The same regular people who have the time really are sitting there refreshing trying to get deals, about 1/4 of what iv'e ever listed up I get a message within seconds.
And for the other 3/4 of the listings they probably spotted those instantly too only they weren't worth the effort to try and get a deal on, as they were only cheap common items, as soon as I list something rare or expensive the sharks are on it and that's when I get messages.
And every time I reply back and say "sorry this is for auction only" then they never reply and say thanks or anything out of courtesy, so iv'e stopped even replying to them now, if i'm not worth their time then they aren't worth mine.
