Default Is all courtesy gone?

I'm new here and have been trying to sell some stuff. Gone thru the forums to see what people are looking for. I found one guy looking to buy some commons. He messages me back and I ask him what he was doing for price. He has been on since and not replied to my message. I find that awfully rude. It seems to really be a trend lately on the 2 sites I'm on. If you can take the time to read a message you can reply.

Maybe he hasn't taken then time to read your message. You are wanting to open a can of worms but the can appears empty.

"All" courtesy is not gone, but a lot of it is.

Welcome to the world of online forums.

preaching to the choir my MA buddy. usually when someone is looking to buy you will actually never ever get a response and they will just continually bump their thread no matter how many people respond.
Also some folks have auto log in when they turn on their phone or computer and don't actually come on the site for a while. If you see them still posting and you dont' get a response, just move on to the next one.
I'd like to show the board some of the PM's I've sent that have gone unanswered. I do try to get something back to everyone, I'm sure I have been guilty though of not responding (especially if said member is on my ignore list)

I find it rude that OP hasn't responded to any of our comments. I guess all courtesy is gone.

Welcome to the world of online forums.
Need to get this right....Welcome to the world. It is sad to say that most people now days have no manners, let alone courtesy. Yes there are still good ones out there, but a lot of people are just plain rude.

Work in the food or retail business for awhile and just see how fine the people of our country can be when they don't get their way....even when they are in the wrong.

As for me, if you send me a PM, I will answer back. Might not be today, but you will always get an answer

Funny how when you are spending money and buying from someone they respond instantly

Replied to someone's trade post on here last week and they bumped it up a few days later without a reply to me as if my post wasn't even there. I replied to someone's thread last night and I'm sure the same thing will happen with that one as well. Couple months back I got banned from a site for calling someone out who did it to me on there.

Only takes two seconds to respond, while everyone should be curtious I actually find no response even more rude that a negative response. I would rather have someone respond with a "screw you not interested" than ignore the message. At least the "screw you" guy took time to write back!

dude get used to it because it will happen quite a bit. A few I will give a little latitude to, but most who do that will miss a deal so I look at it like it's their loss not mine.

We are doing a deal now and I have responded quite promptly, and I know plenty here that will respond just the same way.

Chalk it up to their loss and call it a day. This (unfortunately) is the world we live in today.

I have been in the middle of completing deals and/or a trade and never hear back from the other side again. It has been happening more and more lately. A lot of the new members are really bad at communicating. I usually do not wait around too long to do a B/S/T. Actions speak louder than words, so I do not wait around.

I know the feeling. Found a guy on this forum with the toughest card for my Heroes patch set. Sent him a list of stuff I was willing to trade. He replied "Great stuff, give me some time and maybe we can work something out." Two months and a couple pm's later... you'd think the guy would have the decency of just saying, Sorry... not interested. Super frustrating.
