Anyone else notice this about the "for sale" section?

  1. I can't count the number of times that someone in the "Wanted" section is seeking exactly the same item that is for sale in the "For Sale" section. This week it's a Sting Custom. It's usually something not-too-ordinary. So what are the odds that the 50 or so active sellers and the 50 or so active seekers could match up like that so often? I also have to wonder how many times these two actually close a deal.

    Or is it just me? :eyebrow:

    I have noticed that and have wanted to play matchmaker for some odd reason. :eyebrow:
  3. It's just you... :smug: (nyuk nyuk)

    No, but seriously I had noticed this on quite a few occasions. It makes me wonder why more people don't look in the For Sale section before posting a Wanted...(Unless the original For Sale is posted after the Wanted).

    Anyways, its just a coincidence and thanks to Talkbass for helping bring buyers and sellers from all over together.

  4. I have too but I've more wanted to do it by saying something like "hey stupid, didja look here first?" :D
