Completed auction poisoned by completion redirect

Just in case this wasn't noted in the other forum, and just in case anyone cares, completed auctions (at least in coins/currency category) are being poisoned by the new redirect eBay has for completed auctions that take you to a different auction based on their sales algorithm. You can click the original listing to go on anyways, but JBW doesn't know this, so the description, price, end date, are poisioned after completion of the auction. So, once an auction is done, you gotta fiddle around to determine what actually happened with it and even what the original auction was...because JBW shows it as uncomplete, with a new price, description, and end date. Only the auction # and picture seem to be saved, as well as event data because I guess that is recorded live.

    By the way adding

    ?nordt=true

    Seems to bypass the redirect and take you to the original auction. JBW should use this when evaluating the auction after completion because the plain item lookup

    Will get redirected without the ?nordt=true

    Yes, that new ebay redirect thing for completed items is for everything and is not liked at all.
