...But back to the topic - I prefer D in terms of politeness, but C if they're really serious. Anything that makes me have to contemplate pricing and how much I *really* want to keep it and whatnot has less chance of a response, or at least a timely response, because I am horrible at decision making. C is less effort on my part, I just have to decide if that number is worth it and I'll let you know.
Nice to hear an artists opinion!
You mention personal preferences, and I guess that is what it all boils down to. It is nice to hear others personal preferences.
I think it is also a lot like online dating. If someone doesn't respond to your inquiry, you pretty much know their answer!
