Competitive Bidding

The BBO Administration have kindly offered to run a series of competitive bidding articles. I feel I have a lot to talk about on this important topic.
Google Sites changed its security: click the "shield" button to allow the iframes from BBO.

The BBO archive link contains these articles in their easy-to-read format.
