Low balling and trolling on for sales thread


I posted two AR7200BX new in box for sale in sales thread the other day. I get an PM from this guy asking what is my bottom line for both units and I sent him my bottom selling price for both. Then he offers me about 50% of my asking price. I politely rejected his offer saying it is too low to sell. He continues to low ball me over the PM so i mentioned that he may have a better luck finding used one at his price range. Since that last exchange of PMs, this guy now is trolling my sales thread (which i have been deleting his nonsense comments). He is calling me nazi for deleting his nonsense comments now, lol.

It seems like this guy has a history of posting low ball offers or nonsense comments on sales thread(i just looked at his previous posts), instead of negotiating over PM. I know the other forums have forum rules warning members about derailing for sales thread and posting offers on sales thread. Is there a rule like that in RCgroups?

Yeah, you already mentioned it, trolling. Next time, leave his comment and report it.

Don't try to deal with them OP, just report them and let the mods deal with it. I had a guy trolling my for sale thread in the past. Instead of Pm'ing or making an offer, he put the comments in the thread for no other reason than to annoy. He had no intention of buying, just wanted to get a "zinger" in there. After deleting the comment and asking him nicely not to post in my thread, he continued to do so, even mentioning that this was some attempt to return a favor, I guess for some illogical perceived slight? Who knows, but they were reported and dealt with accordingly. No sense lowering yourself to their level.

Report them, and keep in mind you can report the PM's you are getting too. Use the report button in the upper right hand corner. Good luck on your sale!

I have reported his posting. Not sure if support or admin is even reading.

they typically will respond within 24 hours.

Just as a work of caution, you should go back and look at your comments to others about this guy. Not in your threads, but others. They could also be reported for trolling (I know, ironic) and might get dealt with the same way. It's probably better to PM the seller you are trying to warn.

Hope that helps.

Nameci,
Just go into your feedback screen, and go over the far right, you'll see a "report feedback" button there. Same thing, describe the issue and hit report. It will be taken off. The other guy might get a point, or even more if he continues.

Steiger117, not cool... Now even making up stories...
What racist remark did I make? Telling you that you should look for used one for price range you are looking for?
It just shows your true character...

So two wrongs make a right? Report whatever he said that you feel is inappropriate, or just ignore it. Why troll the guy and leave malicious feedback?
