Hi John

I've sent you a PM, but no reply. Are you interested in selling the scope separately? Ta.

Cheers,
Steve.

Is this for real?

John

I've sent you two PMs. I've sent you a text. I've sent you a private email. No response.

My guess is that you've sold the kit and couldn't be bothered updating your listing, answering emails, etc. That's very anti-social behaviour in a community such as IceInSpace.

Shame.

Cheers,
Steve.

Hi all

Thanks guys. I hope that John is well and, as you say, there's a reason for no responses from him.

I've had a couple of occasions this year though where advertisers list their gear, sell it to the first responder, then never respond to PMs, emails, etc. Eventually they get around to marking it Sold. At best, that's wasting other peoples' time. At worst, it's just plain rude.

John's ad has been there for more than 2 weeks now. I've reached out multiple times in multiple ways. Nada. Sorry for jumping to the conclusion that John was being rude too.

I hope he's able to respond soon.

Cheers,
Steve.

There's a phone number .... calling is your best option.

If that goes unanswered then the likelyhood of the other forms of contact being answered is I would say, somewhat low and may indicate non-availability for all sorts of reasons.

Best

Contacting John

Hi JA

I've texted John on his phone number. But you may be right: he only answers phone calls. Even though the ad says to PM him.

Sorry for the lack of response guys!

I only saw the e-mail alerting me to a PM this morning a few minutes ago, and I can’t check IceInSpace more than once or twice a day because of work commitments, hence the inclusion of my mobile number.

I was surprised to see such a flurry of interest when some of my other ads have languished for weeks and months :-)

PMs will be responded to shortly....

Thanks for your patience.

John

Sorry for the confusion, but my updated ad (for the scope only) has only been up since Wednesday, when I sold the G11 mount separately.

I have only received one text and one PM (sent today, Saturday morning) so I've been pretty quick of the mark I think!

Looks like some communication errors from IceInSpace and/or Vodafone? I received nothing from you until Saturday.

I've answered you PM.

Best regards,

John
