Re: Do I look suspicious or something?

It's happened to me a couple of times - saw an ISO and offered up my item for whatever PPD and got no response. I don't worry about it. If they wanted it, they'd let me know, but not getting a response is kind of frustrating. I mean, how long does it take to reply to a PM and say "Thanks, but no thanks"? I guess it is easy to get overwhelmed if you have a lot of PMs going back and forth at once, I hope I haven't done it to anyone.

You ladies are funny.

I guess I SHOULD have named a price. I'm just going to continue wallowing in self-pity, though.

And look at all the thread-killas who DIDN'T kill this thread. Me replying back might just prove to be the kiss of death; we shall see...

Besides, one of the number one rules of negotiation is to never start off naming a price.

Well, to be a little more specific, I'm talking about DVDs (in one case). The person basically posted that they were willing to pay between $x and $y, depending on the movie.

And I guess I wasn't even looking at it like a negotiation, because what the heck do I need with two copies of the same movie? Maybe I should have tried harder to make some cash on the deal.

Me: pm's ... I have 4 of those, are you interested
Person: very interested, do you have pics?
Me: yep, I'll take and upload tomorrow after work (and I do) and I sent price info and I supply my paypal
Person: sends pm back accepting price for 3 of them
Me.... waiting... waiting ... 1 week goes by... I pm and ask if still interested...
Person: yep, still want them!
Me... another attempt at communication and no response... items are now listed on craigslist.

Re: Do I look suspicious or something?

Thats happened to me a couple times. Ive also PMed ppl wanting to buy something from them, and NO RESPONSE. What gives? Oh well. I know that when I did my ISO, I was FLOODED by PMs. My PM box stayed full, and I kept emptying, and by the next day it was full again. That does get overwhelming. Especially when 20 people PM you with the same item! LOL
