    A lot of people post what site they have and then just "make offers...".

    What do you think of this behaviour?

    Personally I find this very rude and I never make offers to any such thread.

    The reason I find it rude is because the person is to lazy to write at least what s/he already has, and instead expects me to fill my pm-box with useless offers that could have been avoided if the person would just list what sites s/he already has.

    Anyone else who thinks it is not too much to ask for the OP to at least post what sites s/he has?

    Doesn't bother me, and it shouldn't bother you.

    Granted, your point is well made, but why not just ignore those threads then and move on? Nobody says you have to PM them, just wait for a post on that invite that fits your requirements

    I currently do, but I would prefer if people would shape up to give me more chances of trades.

    Also, not all people might be aware that this is rude.

    I guess i did that before, and now it just doesn't make any sense to me, but Zenican was right, no need to comment just ignore 'em and go on.

    HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

    Of course I need to comment because it could possibly make the site better. Why would I not comment on it?

    I'm on the same page as you. I generally ignore them. The few times I did answer, I was met with 'I already have it' or 'I'm looking for something better', or my favorite: "I'm waiting to field more offers so I can pick the best one".

    Annoying, but what are ya gonna do? Gotta get those 5-star sites so you can brag to all your friends!

    of course you are absolutly free to do, but you really don't have to waste energy on every little mistake, adding to this i think that the "making offers" thread is mainly dedicated to the "Making offers" FUNS, so why should i care since the message wasn't necessarily for me?

    Well I think you telling others what shouldn't bother them is rude in inself. Yeah honestly it sucks balls but they are making the offer so they get to say it how they want it to go. Just one of the many annoying thing we have to deal with from day to day. Also I can imagine people don't want to give it away too cheaply, they of course want the best possible deal they can get.
