This has happened twice now...

Person: ISO item (non-CD)
Me: (via PM) Hey, I have a spare one of those, how much you want to spend (hint: it's not an item a person needs two of so FFS would have been an option on my end, and it's a small, light item so the fact the I live in AK is not really much of a factor like it is with heavy stuff)?
Person: *no response*
Me: (to self) huh, they must have found what they were looking for. Kinds rude to not PM back, but whatever. *goes on merry way, humming a cheery tune*
Person: *bumps ISO, item still on it*

It's happened twice and is giving me a bit of a complex. Am I just not one of the "cool kids" in the junior high cafeteria?

OK, it doesn't really bother me THAT much. It's a little funny, even. But jeez, if my secondhand stuff in good condition for a reasonable price isn't good enough for ya for some reason, have the ovaries to PM me back and own your secondhand-seeking superiority.

That sounds kinda like me. Almost every time I post on a thread I end up killing it.
So sorry in advance for killing your thread, lol.

Re: Do I look suspicious or something?

Maybe they don't want to offer you a price? I'm not sure. I think I should put something in my siggy about being super cheap though... I briefly did an ISO (and got overwhelmed) but I felt bad telling people I only wanted to pay $3-4 per maternity item. I knew I could get my entire wardrobe for that price though, it's just not what everyone was expecting I guess.

Re: Do I look suspicious or something?

Maybe try putting something like- asking $xx or best offer- I know I hate ads that just say make offer- I never know where to start- I want a deal, but don't want to offend, either, KWIM?

I tend to be be a thread killer, too- I like to subscribe to threads I have replied to, so I can go back and see if there are any replies- more often than not, I go back and look, and I am always the last person to post. I always feel like I did in junior high or high school- I was always the one to say something, trying to be part of the conversation, then everyonne kinda looks around at one another like "who is this idiot" and then walks off. Did a lot to my self esteem back then- just wanted to kick myself- I think that's why I don't get more involved in conversations here, even though I would like to be one of the "cool" ones

I think it would be better if you said, I have one of these items for sale, I'd like $xppd for it, rather than expecting them to name their price. A lot of people would be intimidated by that.

I completely agree with this. I was asked to give an offer recently and it was weird for me. I'm okay with negotiating but not when it's not my item to begin with.
