GoDaddy auction, bid and counter offer??

So I saw a name on a GoDaddy auction I fancied. It was currently at auction with a price of $499. I offered $280, expecting a counter offer and fully expecting to up my offer but the counter offer came back as $1,500,000!!!!

Whats that all about then?

Maybe someone got abit too excited seeing an interested buyer (which must be a rare occurance to them) so hoped that they could ramp up the price as they dont have a clue how buyers work.. Pretty foolish that isnt it.. Was it a really top notch domain name?.. If things like that happen just let it go.. Stick to your original price level.. If you wanted to pay even like 2k you would have offered more initially! but dont be ramped up in bids, ever

I wish I had that kind of money. It is quite a good generic two word .com but I don't know what kind of medication the owners on.
I might of stretched to the original $499 but that counter offer knocked me for six and knocked my interest away. Just a waste of time really.
