What's up with sellers who don't reply to inquiries about whatever it is they're selling? I've sent questions to people who just posted an item but then I don't ever hear from them.

My guess is that they've already sold or decided not to sell and don't have the courtesy to respond to inquiries. When I was shopping the classifieds, this was a pretty chronic problem.

I just spent the last two months piecing together a TT bike from the rbr classifieds and from eBay. About half the people I contacted here did not respond back. I think some sellers must get a lot of responses and cannot email everybody. I try to give them a break even though a non-response it is not very courteous.
how much time are you giving them?bianchi boy

I post ads from my computer at home in the evenings, so I can't respond to e-mails until the following afternoon of evening when I get home from work. Others are probably in the same boat. It's not good policy to sell items using your computer/e-mail at work, in my book.
