What is it with ignorant people on Craigslist trying to sell gear from 1982 for HUNDREDS of dollars?!

https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/nvn/spo/6561467055.html

I contacted this seller to polity inform the price is not inline with what's on offer. Instead of thanks I got %^%#.

I can understand asking a bit more than what you think you'll get because of some haggling. However, some sellers are on another planet!

Craigstlist!

Rant over.

Whatever happened to the Craigslist guide to pricing used gear?

I saw it a few months ago. Looked like it was written by a frustrated windsurfer.

There are CERTAIN boards from the early to mid 90's that are worth 200-600. 80's stuff is pure crap though.

Well it was a good guide, frustration often leads to leap forward and advancement, Elon Musk was frustrated with the automobile industry, the examples of inventions or ideas due to frustration are countless.
Frustration is good as long as it is channeled into something productive and positive :)
sarcasm not really one of them
