Why do people feel the need to add this comment? If it’s that good why didn’t you buy it?

Because its 'murica! Nothing wrong with a little help for the seller. Most folks that do this probably already have the item..



Hell I get texts all the time with TBH links from folks asking if something is a good price because they know I research a lot of stuff. These folks are being proactive. I'd rather have somebody say it's a good deal and let other folks know it, than "you are way overpriced"

Maybe they already have one and paid more money for it. They recognize that it’s a good deal.

Maybe it’s not that good a deal and they give the seller false hope of getting that price.

Nothing wrong with giving your opinion. Hell, that’s just about the only content on this forum. How many threads do you see with fifteen (or fifty) people giving the same answer to a question ?

The worse part about it is that the price is often way too high. I have sen stuff double the going rate and still someone will post what a great deal it is.

For Sell: 1980s Bow. Only 250k arrows shot. It's real quite. Ready to go, just needs new string, limbs, and riser. Don't loose out on this deal for only $1000!
Reply 1: What a deal that'll sale quick!
Reply 2: Wish you were closer
Reply 3 (When price is actually a good deal): Will you take half of your asking price?
Reply 4: I'll take it!
OP Reply: SPF
2 weeks later: Back up for sell, buyer backed out. Don't lowball me I know what I've got.

Does this about sum up the classifieds? And more importantly, does complaining about it help anything?

Come on man..Usually? That's an over-generalization. TBH is a plethora of information for those of us who don't know everything about everything. I have had a ton of questions answered here and led in the right direction for purchases, projects and decisions...

If I just bought a Waterloo Salinity casting rod for $150 and someone posted one on here a week later for $100, I would probably say, "That's a good deal"

I can't afford to buy a second one and the first one already has visual wear and tear so I can't return it.

It's a good deal!

Think it’s more about bumping a buddy’s thread then anything. Usually anything that is a true deal is gone before a bump is needed. Things that are reasonably priced but high end take a bit, and lower end stuff takes a few bumps. Then there is the items selling higher then you can buy new……
