I love the guys who have a one or two line vague description, one poor quality picture, say ask questions and then have two pages of how wonderful of sellers they are that is copied into every single ad. Then when you do ask questions you get a response back saying:

"due to how important my time is, I don't have the time to rephotograph every item. I beleive I adequately described it but feel free to bid and find out. If you contact me again I will black list you."

That is an actually response I got back once ..

Really though, I think ray does have a point that a lot of sellers are just sellers who have subscribed to the philosophy that ebay is nothing but a retail store where someone will buy anything at any price. The idea of ebay as a flea market is dying out where there is some interaction between buyer and seller. Take a look at how many things are BIN even though they are niche items like collectibles or antiques. I have a whole watch list of things that have been continuously listed at absurd prices for years hoping the seller would come down in price. On occasion, I have had luck negotiating with these guys, but its getting harder and harder too. I don't even try when we are 1000% apart on price though.
