Red face Spam?

Hi there,
Q: If someone has an Itrader listng that says they "want to buy" something, is it spam to PM them to see if they are still looking for it?

Re: Spam?

I am just questioning whether this counts as "Unsolicited personal message spam" if they have posted they are looking for an item/product.
any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If it was in their ISO then it's ok. I don't think it's spam. Sometimes you are desperately ISO of something and are waiting for PM's. If it's in trades only, then see if there is anything that they have for trade before you PM.

Re: Spam?

If they have an iso out for it or start a thread and specifically say SPAM me then it is fine.

I don't think it's spam. Having an ISO in your siggy on a thread is telling people you are looking for a certain something. If they aren't interested in your particular item, so be it, but I don't think it's SPAM if they put the request out there.
