More Revealed eBay Hidden IDs

This is weird. Check out item #270320759009. Just in case what I am seeing right now disappears, here is a screen cap:

Click on the image to see a full-size version. The buyer's full ID is visible in the blue area at the top. I am neither the buyer nor the seller, so I should not be seeing the buyer's name. It is odd.

I found other listings in which a best offer was made and accepted, and I also see the buyer's full ID. What is the point of hiding buyers' IDs when some of them are visible? Has it been like this on best offers and I have somehow not noticed it? Or, is this a glitch? If it is a glitch, I like it . . . I really do. It is a very nice glitch.
