Travis, Hey bud, not trying to pick on you or say that all sellers act this way. Unfortunately though, too many do. Some even will refuse or ignore all offers but then use the highest offer to take their item with that starting price to another venue like E-bay. Some will say that they can't sell for what the offers were because of this or that. Well, if they knew what they had to get, why not post that price, or near it, up front so we all can know?
I really don't care one way or another how Founder wants to go with our suggestion. We can do as i do, ignore those "best offer" type ads but i think the original request is a good one and puts everybody on the same page.
If a seller has no idea how much an item is worth, they could always Post the "Question of Value" in any one of the pertaining Forums for reply. I know i've given my opinions to value in the past and these threads in themselves are usually interesting.
