Common Courtesy

I just had my first experience with CraigsList.
It was a positive experience.

I posted an item that I wanted to get rid of, and which generated much more interest than I expected. The first person who looked at it, bought it, for the price I asked. The whole thing was done, from soup to nuts, in a little over 24 hours.

There were about half a dozen pending inquiries at the time of the sale. I took the time to reply to each, either via e-mail or by phone to let them know that the item was no longer available.

Without fail, I received a heartfelt thank you from the prospective buyer for taking the time to respond to their inquiry.

It took me all of five minutes. It made me feel pretty good.
