Take this advert for example :
It appears at least once a month, yet neither myself, nor a friend who apparently had stuff meeting this errant buyer "Shimmering Glory" / Wilkes's easily met specifications, has ever got any reply from him - this despite repeated AX messages to him.
""Looking for broken notebook, PC parts, dead or alive.
I am actively looking for broken notebooks. Apart from notebooks itself, any notebook/PC parts would be welcomed too.
Why not turn something you think that will end up in a landfill into $$$ instead ?
Of course, any working ones would be welcome too, just let me know if you have anything to offer as well as the price desired, thank you.

With ZERO responses dating back for many months, isn't it about time this person is told to "Sling his Hook"???
Also, there have been any number of people who messaged me when I was offering a FREE pack of printer inks - yet no one could get off their backsides & come & collect the item - and several even expected me to incur expense delivering the FREE item to them !
Of course 'Ed" will say that if he kicked 'em out, they'd return with a new name - but that's no reason to allow discourtesy with "No Shows" and "No responses" !
In the end, I just slung the pack into the Plastic recycling bin.
From OTHER comments I've seen on the various buy/sell areas in AX, my experiences are not unique - There is a decided lack of simple courtesy to be found by certain users here.
The "No Timewasters, No Donkeys" tags on items for sale are there for a reason.
The reason ? The seller has been messed around too many times before & is legitimately venting his spleen the only way he can.
I agree with him - there are far too many Pinocchio-nosed AX people out there - as he discovered.
