If you have sold anything on CL like I have you have to sympathize with this guy.
I did nothing...I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be..

The guys who were e-mailing him might have been idiots; however, judging from that excrement, so is he.

I can sympathize with him. There are sooo many tire kickers on Craigslist who will waste your time. I've had people ask me to hold items. Ask if they can make payments. Ask if they can return it if they don't like it. Give ridiculous low ball offers on things in near new condition. It goes on and on. The moron ratio is higher on Craigslist than anywhere else in my experience.

What I don't get is the people who waste their time coming over to see the item (which is exactly as described), then don't buy it. They learned nothing new from seeing it, so why bother?

I have a 65-inch TV on there right now for $500 that I'm going thru this with, although it's not a Craigslist issue, just a crazy people issue.
