Craigslist TV sellers: Thanks for letting me know you paid $3,000 dollars for your TV in 2008, and therefore, $1,000 is a great deal. But did you have to add "Price is firm- No low-ballers!" I can buy a larger TV off the shelf new with far better features for $999. I'd be interested in making a deal, but every time I even try to negotiate, I get called a low-baller. If you had an LCD watch with no collector's value costing $799 in 1985, you think it's a good deal to ask considerably more than what a new one costs ($5)? Obviously you do. Well, I see your ad day after day. Guess your target market of idiots is not coming through.
