Is eBay just a joke nowadays?

I'm selling some clothes for a friend right now and I just checked my email to notice that I had a bid retraction. I clicked on the item and saw that the buyer had "entered the wrong amount", but never corrected their bid (as required by eBay policy). I was curious, so I clicked their account page and saw under their buyer feedback that they have 49 retractions in the last year, putting their retractions nearly as high as their feedback for items won. I really don't get how people can get away with such a blatantly obvious breaking of rules. I guess I should report them so they'll stop screwing up the bidding on peoples' listings?

This happens all the time. Not really a big deal and probably a waste of time to report it. Better then them buying the item, asking you to cancel and leaving you negative feedback - when you either refuse or even if you do agree to cancel. They either had no intention of making the purchase or determined the item would not work for them so realistically the sale was never going to happen.
