Correct. In my view, there is a big difference between some problem or glitch that irritates you (or even irritates you a lot) and being brutally shafted. The latter has never (well, not yet) happened to me.I've had plenty of people say they want to buy something and then vanish into thin air, including one guy recently who told me he had cash in hand for my AR as soon as I could meet him and then said needed to learn more about guns before buying it. But I don't consider that shafted, just irritated.
I've made many successful buys (more than my feedback suggests) but the big challenge in my view is buyer and seller ethics... and simple respect and politeness. And it's not just with nubes, non-greens and nutcases. A few very experienced sellers here could use a remedial lesson or two in communication and selling ethics.
