"What are you willing to Pay"" -- A Poll..

The ROE regarding quoting a price you are will to pay for an item is unpopular with some Forum members. This basic Yea or Nay poll may draw attention to the Memberships opinion, hopefully to encourage it being dropped..

Please reply to this Thread with a simple Yea or Nay, it would be interesting to hear you reasons but please keep as requested.. The results will be tallied and Posted... Art

Thanks from Dougboffl and M14wannabe

Under the generally accepted practices of common business law, all purchasing and selling transactions occur between a willing buyer and a willing seller. There will generally always be a differing perspective between the two with respect to the value of an item and the two parties will negotiate to arrive at a mutually acceptable value. A buyer should not have to weaken their negotiating position by disclosing the amount they are willing to pay prior to the beginning of the negotiations. Any rule requiring such disclosure is wholly inappropriate and in any other arena of life would not be tolerated. Would any buyer disclose how much they would be willing to pay for an automobile or a house before they ever spoke a word to any seller? This rule is an affront to the standard precepts of commerce and is the reason I never post a Want To Buy notice in the Classifieds. This rule should be removed.

I believe you are misunderstanding the OP. He is referring to the WTB rule where you must disclose up front what you are willing to pay for the item you want to buy.

Just a newbie, but I wholeheartedly agree with GardenValley. A WTB request should not require a willing to pay price. So, yea to abolish.

Thanks from ConRich and 11e40

NAY

And you would think people would understand "simple" and follow the OP request....of "yea" or "nay"......

Of course I am guilty now as well, albeit provoked.....but sometimes you got to point out anti "simple" and laugh...

Nay

Thanks from SGT John SWF

yes, i think the rule should be dropped, or at least changed to where a wtb thread would not have to list a price willing to pay, but a plain "what is it worth" post is not allowed. Just my opinion, but I agree with Mr. Luppino and Garden Valley.

I vote keep the rule. It's simply stating the buyers opening position and by no means the final price. Both parties have to state an opening position and then negotiate to a selling price. That's all it is.
