Mine is a simple rant.
Hate ebay sellers that offer best offer and then reply to any best offer request with a $3 discount (on things $50 or more) or something equally stupid.
I mean, WTF. Why even bother with best offer if you are going to make an insulting counter-offer like that. $3 is just transaction cost noise on ebay, with it's dumb international purchasing and postage costs.
If any of you can understand the mentality behind this, please let me know.
My favorite is when you make a reasonable offer (like say, $5 off an $80 item) and either get flat declined or a counteroffer of...the full asking price.
Again...why have the Make Offer button if you want your full asking price...? Do they not know that it's optional?
