KC5FWS: no response is irritating

Post by W6AAL » Wed Oct 07, 2009 7:35 pm

If you receive an offer by email , then it is polite to refuse the offer by notifying the prospective buyer by e-mail rather than ignoring it. It is a minor point to be sure, but you can save the buyer time and avoid irritating him.

No response problem or not????

We do not stand in each other’s shoes. Who knows what is going on the other end of the perposed deal. No response to my offer, I call them. Last one was an SK,. No answer means "no" to the offer in my book.
Remember this is a hobby, play nice.

old bromide

Post by W6AAL » Thu Oct 08, 2009 5:54 pm

'Stand/walk in someones shoes' is an old bromide that adds little to the concern I expressed. The seller had sufficient 'walk in his shoes' to delete the ad, but not enough to press reply on an email? What nonsense. The intent of the post is to encourage sellers to do the right thing regardless of the 'walk in their shoes'.

Incomplete information

Post by N8ERM » Thu Oct 08, 2009 6:20 pm

John,
If I would have had all the information of the deleted ad I might have believed as you. If the post were to encourage sellers to do the right thing it would not have given the guys call. I still might not have the complete information. I had an in beautiful condition TS-950 SDX that was loaded with options. I got an offer for $500.00 including shipping from MI to FL. He didn't get an answer or deserve to get an email with an answer. This old bromide works fine for me.
As Al says nuff said.
