    Ive had 2 so far flake out after we made deals the last few weeks. one I even held for a couple weeks.

    Kids have no respect for their word. I guess integrity isn't something parents teach no more. I love passing up sales because I trusted them. Sad people are such flakes

    If you gave them every chance and good faith effort and they still turned craigslist flake on you, nuke em' in the feedback. Otherwise they will just continue to waste other peoples time as well. I wouldn't get all dramatic in the review, just the facts of the situation would do.

    My old boss used to say; “don’t make me circumcise you with pinking shears”

    OP...if they flaked after genuine communication, I would give them a negative feedback. That way the rest if us won’t get burned.

    I totally agree. Craigslist is one thing but this forum should be different. We should be citizens of our word. Give them a simple negative feedback...if for no other reason then to give us all the heads-up.

    Yep, that's what the feedback system is for. As mods, we can't "make" people be true to their word.

    That's how I picked up that jungle carbine in the classifieds just last Friday. The seller was a good guy, holding it for him and even willing to meet him halfway between Medford & Portland. Instead the guy disappeared and I had second dibs.

    The guy was a jerk. I got a nice gun. :cool:

    If the final deal was made and they flaked or were a no-show, you can leave a negative feedback. It provides warning for future transactions. (I have zero tolerance for flakes, either business or pleasure, so I personally would.)

    One of the board rules, for whatever it is worth is:

    Cheers.

    A person is only as good as their word. Their actions would speak louder than words in this instance.

    I've had a few and one recently. I generally do not leave negative feed back unless they REALLY earn it and I've only done it once, I just never do business with them again and/or ignore them. It's that whole, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
