That's what I do too. If it's something I want, I determine what I am willing to pay for the item and wait until there is less then a minute left and submit my bid. If I don't get it, then fine. I was only willing to pay a certain amount to begin with.
What this person did IMO is unethical, but probably not illegal or against the rules. But I'm not that "hip" on what all Ebay dictates.
