| p.1 #1 · When an "offer" isn't. |
OK, I know this will make me seem even older than I am (and even more grumpy) but I have to put this out there:
Please, refrain from the use of the phrase: Would you take?
That is not an offer and it's not a game a good FMer should play. An offer states what a buyer will do, not what he might do if his horoscope says to.
An offer reads like this: "I'll pay you $967 dollars shipped and PayPaled for your Canikon Q50."
Would you take is usually nothing but a fishing attempt. When a seller is silly enough to "accept" an offer worded that way he's almost always gonna get a reply like, "OK, I'm waiting on a PayPal refund and I've got some fishing gear up on ebay...once I have the money I'll get back to you."
Translation? Now that I have your bottom feeder, low-ball number in hand you can wait to see if I'll actually come through. Either that, or he'll get no reply at all.
It's just not a way of doing business that fits here at FM, IMHO.
So please, if you want to make an offer just make one. If you're just fishing for the lowest possible price imaginable, with no commitment on your part, take your game to Ebay and Craigslist.
