What ads with no pictures? I've seen many pictures of snow-white items taken against a snow-white background! Or is it transparent items against a snow-white background? ... :mrgreen:

"If you want to see a picture just google Zenith 12S435" or whatever is that they selling.

Nah, to make it a real lesson he should punch his number into a cellphone and then hit cancel rather than dial.

Nothing like a little passive aggressiveness to drive the point home.

Oh, I was just joining in on the joke. I certainly didn't intend to be nasty toward the OP.

I figured that was the case. Passive aggressiveness against the offending Craigslist poster, not against the OP.

I could hope that this one would be something interesting like a Lido, but the odds are it's a 90/91/92 variant. We'll see if seller replies.

That's just an amputated 91.

Yes, he just added pictures and sent them to me. The original ad had no pictures. What a piece of krap. Sawed off legs and lots of varnish slopped on. Gold painted escutcheon and knobs. Barely worth the 45s if it still has them.

Let's not be too hard on the CL guy. Spousal motivation is sometimes the genesis for photo-less and poorly communicated ads...

You right, that is one way of not to sell what you are being nagged about. Then you can say:

"Look honey, I have this trinket for sale for two months and I have no bites" Now you have the risk of: "You see, I told you it was worthless. We are putting it on the curb... No buts".

That's why you open with "Honey, they're all such miserable cheapskates round here. I've had it listed for months at $x, when it's easily worth $morethanx and nothing!"

I sure hope my wife never reads this.

No greater wisdom.....

Worse is the cryptic acronyms or simple "WTB:" titles, or asking for something you need three of, but only have two.......pictures please, or I move on.

Don't get me started on the germane/clarifying discussion that disappears..
