Don't need everyone with access to the classifieds knowing how I spend my money or what types of nice things I've just bought.
THIS GUY GETS IT.

And even better- no way for self-righteous hooligans to judge your transaction.

When it gets down to talking about the actual deal, I always do that by phone and not Text or PM. I won't buy from anyone that won't talk to me first.
yep, anyone that is not willing to have a brief phone call is not going to be the buyer i'm selling to. it get's real when you get a live voice on the line!

I agree 100%. If I get a PM stating "I'll Take It" time dated by the system and it comes before an "I'll Take It" thread REPLY time dated after the PM then the 1st time dated whether PM or REPLY is up 1st. I have had it happen to where it moved all the way to the 4th interested person which came with a thread REPLY stating PM SENT.

Classified should be a ďno replyĒ forum.
If you want something...PM the seller.
Until that happens...all the drama will continue

If you post something on here that I want, and its a fair price I will buy it. I could give two chits about some jack wagon trying to get a bargain or some goofy azz trade, I will step in line and offer full pop and buy it. Sorry about your luck.
