Some may figure you'll get back to them with an even lower offer. Of course why would anyone do that, when they could first try just reducing their original advertised price to somewhere in between. Reminds me of those guys responding to an ad posted less than 1 hour ago at $100 + shipping, asking if the seller will do $75 shipped. What I would do is wait to see if someone else is interested. Make them an offer even lower than they chiseling guy offered, and then post sold to so and so for $xx. Leave the thread open so the upset chiseler can respond and complain. They tell them the buyer offered the even lower offer and you accepted, while they never got back to you.

I'm on my way to the Classifieds right now, where I plan to haggle somebody, without mercy, about the price of their item. I'll be relentless until I get them to knock off 65% of the asking price. Then I won't buy it.

My price is almost always low to begin with. I just say NO. Its very simple. If they dont recognize a good price, then they dont get to buy it. The NO always shuts them down. Yes I would like to sell it, but I wont give it away to some low baller. I will keep it, or throw it way before I do that. That is just way I feel.

Their wants exceed their means and they engage the keyboard before engaging their brain.

What do you have against the "font" that I use, Comic Sans MS by the way. What did that poor little font ever do to you? Perhaps backed out of a deal and left you hanging?

If it's my AVITAR that you have a problem with, that I can understand. Since (insert ANY Texas collegiate team here) didn't even make the playoffs, I can see why you would hate on those teams that did. But Clemson was there, and most likely will be AGAIN next year. Instead of hating on Clemson, you might wanna focus more on OKLAHOMA, since the Sooners did "sweep" your entire state...I mean, Republic.
Oh yeah...Ha Ha Ha Ha

Well nobody even remotely indicated that highly presumptuous notion, but FWIW it's spelled "AVATAR".

And you should insert a comma after the word "well", and another after the acronym "FWIW". Or am I being highly presumptuous that you prefer your sentences to be the "run on" variety?

It’s called “shopping”. They have expressed an interest, whether that interest is to grind you down to a price they can afford or just to mess with you it’s still called “shopping”.
99% of casual sales are done by non professionals who are in the market to rid themselves of what is no longer considered useful in their realm.
Nonprofessional being the key word and they don’t have knowledge of any sales code to which they have to adhere so it’s just party on and ethics be damned. That’s where the games begin and sometimes end with either or both parties pissed off or satisfied with the deal or somewhere in between.
Either way it’s still called “shopping”

No, it's not shopping,, unless when you go shopping you bring you items to the register, ask for a discount,, then when the manager say ok we can do that,, you walk out of the store without buying,,

It's annoying these days for sure,,,, too many non buyers that just troll the ads and make lowball offers and/or ask a million questions when they have no real intent to buy anything,,

It's getting old
