Should I close the auction?

Someone sent me a private message that said:

What do you think, folks?  It's a very generous donation and for that amount
($250), I'm more than ready to close the auction.  I'm not familiar with how
things work on Aquabid though.  Don't know if I can get the auction
running there.  But I'll try.
