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.
