    I wouldn't want that monitor - it's been attached to a machine running windows.

    I like the people that ask you to email them for pictures. If you can't be bothered to post pictures, I can't be bothered to ask you for them.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Have not seen it on this forum...but the absolute worst thing I've seen in an ad (other than inadequate description or pictures or some idea of what the fuck they are selling) is a comment along the lines of "text only, emails will be ignored."

    Fuck text messaging.

    I'm just the opposite. I see an ad that says "call if interested, no text or email" and I'm like "uhh. no." I can send a text or email in a minute or two versus spending however long listening to you yammer on the phone (and the phone-only folks sure seem to be the ones that wanna spend 20 minutes telling you way TMI)...

    But to each their own.

    Well since this is a bitchfest about sellers who expect prospective buyers to jump through hoops before they even know what the item looks like, here's another thing that chaps my ass. A full inbox. Several times I've found items I've been interested in, but when I try to send a message to get some details the seller's inbox is full. If contacting a seller becomes time consuming, I move on.
    You are a straight white man. You don't get to be the victim, sweetie.

    Not that pics always help. This guy's monitor has been for sale for a couple of months, grime, cigarette butts, jock itch, and all.

    At least pretty much everyone HAS a phone.

    Close to everyone shopping online has an email address.

    Not everyone has a phone that does text messages, and even if they do, they don't want to give out their cell phone number to random people online.

    Personally, I will email or call. I will accept emails or calls. But fuck messaging. I don't even take text messages from my wife. All text messaging is blocked on my phone.
