    But don't you agree that it's one thing to disagree with someone in a lively discussion (even quite heatedly at times) and quite another to just not acknowledge somebody's help or interest shown, especially when dealt with in private corrsepondence?

    Not trying to excuse the former, but the focus of this thread is more about the latter.

    If someone takes the time and trouble to answer a question you've sent in a pm, surely it's only polite to thank them for the response.

    It is against the FS forum rules to do that. Not that idiots
    care to read sticky's or anything.

    If I am actually interested in buying something as opposed
    to kicking tires, I will make a legit offer on PM. Seller has
    the option to turn a firm buy offer down. Making a legit offer
    is fair, and better than no offer.

    But when someone comes along and says I can get that
    pedal or bass or whatver on Ebay for 50 bucks cheaper,
    I think 'So why are we even discussing this?' since, if you
    were in the market and actually buying, you would have
    bought that already. I won't negotiate a price unless there
    is a SALE involved. Period.

    Amen.

    Or asking for a price for a piece of gear, when that comes back as being higher than expected, sending a "I'll have to pass" reply, and getting hounded.

    Or getting emails "what's the absolute least you'll be willing to pay"... I don't even reply to those.

    But a simple thanks is forgotten so often.

    If Pat really looked like Cheezoda, then he could finally brag about having a willie that touches the ground.
