    I get so many sob stories it's ridiculous. I just don't even respond when I get messages asking for my reserve. Another thing I hate is when some idiot sends a message offering like $500 cash for a psp or something and then egay sends a fraud alert like 30 seconds later. Stupid asses running me hot with that bullshit.

    MmM. Oral. I think I got my seller account banned not replying to stupid messages. Prolly got some complaints. Another thing I hate is when an idiot bids $100,000 on an item cause he "typoed". Goawd.

    From my experience, usually those wanting international shipping are the idiots trying to run one.

    Everytime I have ever listed a reserve auction I always get asked the same thing. "What is your reserve?" DUH. Get's old.

    I'd kick them in the face and say "bitch, you need to bid, and if your bid doesn't meet the reserve, it will say 'reserve not met' and you will know little timmy is F*CKED for his BDAY HAHAHAHA" then you run off, continue laughing, etc. Maybe get some beer, whatever.

    Seriously, people are crafty. Be nice, but don't bend over backwards for the people who ONLY want to reach your reserve - there are more bad reasons to want to know that then good, and your reserve may be lower than you intend to reach for the item.
