Just a reminder, it says at the top of this thread:
"understand when you commit to buy that the seller is probably turning down other offers, so be good to your word"
A good one to remember. I had someone here tell me he wanted to buy my fish and even schedule when to pick it up, only to tell me later, after I stayed at home waiting for the pickup (and multiple PMs gone unanswered), he changed his mind-- and this when finally I had to call him direct. No message, no text, nothing. Just the expectation I should read his mind after he committed to purchasing.
This happened over a period of days and I PM'ed to interested others the fish was already sold.
Please, everyone have the courtesy to remember this is a community and not some sort of cheap used car sales lot or flea market. Respecting members time and their commitments made is important for everyone.
And yes, I did request, (also unanswered), that he PayPal some money upfront. My lesson learned that nothing is sold until the money arrives-- I guess I just expected to be treated the same way I treat others.
