FWIW: 5 years at amain: $18253.74
Nah... I'm just tired of your crying and working so hard to get the last word .

FWIW: I was right. I have spent more than you in the past 6 months - $18,588.43 up to August 17th. Amain member since 2007.

Thanks for playing.

Congrats? What exactly does that prove?
I guess it would imply that you could afford to give more people $5 off.

Actually, it implies I can just pay it. It's just.... $5.00 and why would I waste someone's time trying to negotiate over $5.00?

What does it prove? It proves what I said initially was correct. Spent more than you in 6 months than you have in 5 years. You wanted to FWIW: $18,253.74

You spending more at amain doesnít prove anything.

But Bro Ö $5 is $5. You can afford to give a little discount here and there.

It proved that I've spent more than you in 6 months than you have in 5 years. You posted your total, I posted mine.

Try to keep up...

I mean you are the one who posted a buying guideline in a doís and dontís of selling and fail to go by other selling guidelines, so why wouldnít you bring up that you spend more than anyone else at amain. Oh yeah arrogance.

Still incoherently mumbling along I see.
I said to stop trying to negotiate $5.00 off someone's asking price. It's dumb and a waste. It makes you a bad negotiator and annoying.

Do's and Don't of Selling
Don't accept lame offers $5.00 under your asking.
How's that, good?

Well thatís a pointless guideline and would do nothing but hinder your possibly of a sale. But if thatís how you want to roll. Itís on you and doesnít make sense for most.

Actually, it makes perfect sense to people not so hard up to offer $5.00 off someone's asking price and waste everyone's time. It's dumb. Been my argument from the start, will remain so, no matter how many times you want to go back and forth here.

If you are listing something for an amount but would accept $40 less, you would be dumb not to accept the offer of $5 less.

I already told you... I don't negotiate anything, anymore. It's a tiresome game and 90% of people suck at it. I just put what I want, and that's that. I put the asking price at a very enticing amount. Buyers can decide if they want to pull the trigger on it or move on. It keeps things simple and removes all aggravation from dealing with people - kinda like yourself

If you donít negotiate then mark your prices as firm Ö not make a new guideline using some arbitrary amount of money.

People are free to make offers. I was saying $5.00 under asking is a waste of time and ridiculous.
Doesn't mean I'm going to take their offer.. but they are free to make one.

No need to mark as "firm". Assume all prices are firm unless you see, "OBO" (Or Best Offer).
