And what's with the "PM me for pix and info".  If you've got pix, post 'em.  If you've got the info, give it.

The whole point is I'm looking through posts on Ebay, CL, here, there, everywhere. I don't, and I know you don't have the time to send emails, ask for pictures, where are you located and all that other crap. If a seller doesn't post the details, location and price at a minimum I don't give the item of post a second thought and move on.
 
And what's with FS: Mixer, or FS: speakers. Lazy is all, just lazy people without a clue.

What rips my bus ticket is FS ads with no price stated. I know that somewhere in the PT Barnham school of marketing, there is some axiom that states that that the first person to name a price loses but I just can't be bothered with the dicking around. No price = no interest.

Or someone who is posting ALL IN CAPS... I'm just looking at it, and wondering "Why are you yelling at me?"

Oh well. We can all pass on them... I just wonder why people don't take more of an interest in actually selling their items. It's even more funny when you see the same ad, for the same item(s), for the same price, a couple weeks/months later.

I've been searching for a enclosed trailer and I see so many CL ad's with picture taken in the dead of night. You cant see anything, its a sure fire way for me to pass on it.

Yep. My feelings exactly.

 Absolutely!!! I saw someone selling a large list of nice gear here (or the other forum) recently, and at then end was the old "make me an offer, no lowballs or dreamers" ....
 I just move on when I see that crap... If you can't put a price on your gear, your probably not going to be too happy with the price I want to pay for it. List a price and let's all get on with our lives.

 Also... it's 2013, listing items for sale on the internet WITHOUT a picture, just blows my mind.
