What is with the new 'Pseudo-FS' post trends?
« on: April 13, 2017, 07:03:09 PM »
I've noticed lately a lot of:  "Feeler FS" and "Possible FS" or my favorite "For Potential Sale"

Why?   They are all basically just FS posts, but with some unnecessary clauses and non-committal language.   It's your game.   You can change your mind about selling it at any time before money has changed hands.   LOL    I don't understand all the tippy-toeing around just listing the dang machine for sale.   LOL

I've literally never seen that in my entire time in the hobby but in the last year it's like every week or so.   C'mon Man!  ;)

Yeah they're BS, it's basically a 'highest bidder' soft-silent-auction.
