A Rant about Craigslist......
We all have gotten great scores off of craigslist, but lately I am becoming more and more frustrated with people. I have a deal in place to buy some sets from a guy and after I started on my way to pick them up, he renegs and tells me someone else came along later and offered more (Even though I was paying his asking price). I have also have 6 people in a row commit to picking up a set I was selling only to stand me up at the meeting place. Three of those sets I could have sold to others.
People need to be more curteous. The anonymity of craigslist allows people to just flake out on deals when on Ebay or some other site with feedback they would be he;d accountable.
I realize that there is no fix. It just seems to have gotten very bad lately and I am just frustrated.
