    I hate selling on the internet:
    What kind of wood is it?
    Is it seasoned?
    Would this be good for toothpicks?
    Would you like help selling this item?
    I have half a sack of hard qwick-crete and a flat tire, trade?
    Would you take $.50 for it?

    LOL, I just sold a couple of cars on CL, I put in the ad that if the ad is up then it's available and if your first question is " is it still available"? then I'm charging an extra $50

    Vehicles are the worst.
    Questions: engine, transmission, 4x4, miles, how does it run, available, any problems, etc.
    My standard response is, the information is in the ad. Please read the ad.

    And then the opposite perspective:
    “4 wheeler for sale“ with no other info.
    Any ad with no price.
    Are you that lonely? Do you enjoy answering the same obvious questions over and over?
    I don’t even bother replying if they can’t give basic info in the ad.

    Yes it came out real nice that log was sitting here for a year that anchor seal on the ends made all the difference no staining on the ends at all I cut the one sealed end off just to check that is why some of the boards are end sealed the other good part was that log was a tree service drop off did not cost me

    Unfortunately that's a generic response to an ad on FB. Most people (apparently) don't know how to type in a personal reply. Nice lumber JB Sawman .:yes:
