    I know August is a slow month for gear sales across the board but that doesn't stop the TB classifieds threads from filling up with the same obnoxious replies from tire kickers who have no intention of buying anything - even when sellers ask to keep everything in a PM to keep threads clean and/or they don't check back on the ads as much as they check the PM's.

    If I missed something, comment below and I'll add it (you gotta vote to see the results)

    Maybe you should add "if it were a 5er I'd be all over it" ?

    The one that gets under my skin is "What kind of strings are on it?".
    That's an awesome Mint Sadowsky Bass that you are selling for $800! What kind of strings are on it?
    Boomers.
    Oh, Pass.

    Classified ad's that are old, out dated, obsolete but still appear as active. If it's been sold or no longer available list it as so!
    TB'ers who don't reply to PM's in a reasonably timely manner or not all all, even though they are still active on here.

    HA! Right? AKA "Hold this for me in good faith while I shop around for a better deal on the same thing."

    I haven't seen that in a thread but I'm sure everyones gotten that in a PM.

    definitely posting "Weight?" with no intention of buying. This whole weight thing started with Les Paul players I believe. Now, folks here believe it's mandatory to add the weight to a "for sale" classified, or the Ad is somehow incomplete.

    Watch out OP, you may get an avalanche of doogooders here that will say..."i would never buy a bass unless they told me the weight/nut width" or "you should post all that in the thread to being with or baby jesus will cry". Wah.
