    I’m sure it’s not that big of a deal, but I find this extremely irritating.

    I’m trying to sell an item on Reverb, of course, and I wake up this morning to see I’ve got a message from someone. I think, “cool!” When I open the message, it literally just says “hello”. That’s it.

    Ok, what’s the point of this? I just think it’s a combination of weird and rather annoying. I don’t feel like responding to extract the person’s intent. Is that wrong? I’m gettin’ too old for this ****. :thumbsup:

  3. "Hello" is hardly anything to worry about. There could have been a multitude of worse comments to wake up to. Am I to understand that you chose not to reply to a potential customer?

    I work in sales and I get inquiries all time like that. I understand your frustration. You can just grin and bear it.
    One person emailed me 2 words. "Good Food". What do I do with that?
    Anyway, she booked a huge wedding with me which was very successful.

    It’s not like they sent you a picture of their junk. Just respond and see if they got money.

    Would that qualify as a low-ball offer?

    Easiest response is, "Hi there, do you have any questions or would you like to make an offer on the _____?"

    Some people are new to the site or just don't get how it works. Nothing to get worked up over.

    People do this to me on Slack at work. I just wait till for them to say their bit or ask their question. I'm over being annoyed by it, but it is an irritant to some.

    No Hello

    I needed this today.

    ... And all week.

    Also the number of ppl making Hello/Goodbye jokes is reminding me of Alice in Wonderland.

    “No time to say ‘Hello’. Goodbye! I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!”

    My problem is with low-ball offers. If I follow their store with the intent to low-ball the very next thing they offer up for sale, is that passive-aggressive of me?

    Honestly, I kinda get why the buyer did that. The most frustrating thing as a buyer is seeing an ad and getting your hopes up. You contact the seller and..... nothing. He probably just wanted to see if you would respond.
