God, I hate it when people say "Offers please"

Might as well say "Hey guys, I have a set price in mind but I'm trying to make someone pay higher than it!".

It's kinda half and half. Sometimes people(like me) are looking to see if someone might offer an item we were planning to buy, which saves us the trouble of finding a good seller.

But yeah, a lot of people do it for the reason you say.

Why would you ever negotiate a trade with a tf2 person. They're shoes.

I usually say it if I'm willing to move down or maybe if they're willing to present an item that piques my interest I won't mind taking it as full/partial payment.

I just do that for offers in items.

I have a large problem with people putting high value hats and offers to buy them for a refined, calling them craft hats.

Outpost makes me so mad sometimes. The only consolation is that some spammy individuals get themselves banned for doing this.

The only time I ask for "offers" is when someone randomly asks to buy something I'm not actively selling. What the vast majority of them refuse to understand is that if I'm not actively selling it, then I must like it, and if I like it, I'd have to replace it if I sell it, so you had better make me a hell of an offer so that my time isn't wasted replacing it.

I also get annoyed at people who "buy quicksells". What I really don't understand though, is why people would even sell to those individuals. You can get a fair price easily just by using the search function on Outpost

The problem is the brain lethargic individuals who lists ALL HATS buying them for 1 ref seem to clog up the site. Why people even "+rep" them I don't know.

Now, keep in mind I have less problem with people offering 1 to 1,22 ref for hats that are in th 1,33 value. It's when the "Team Captain and All Father is craft hat" idiocy that ticks me off.

I just hate how legions are trying to buy Airborne Enemies Killed for 2ref, while the sellers are trying to sell it for 2-3.5 keys
