Default negative comments in disc exchange forums

I don't want to be a whiner, and I am not saying this saying it has happened to me, as it has not yet, but I'm seeing a growing pattern of people being real jerks in other people's for trade/for sale threads, questioning them on prices, saying this or that isn't a good deal. Things like this:

Which directly led to

A member recently did the same thing, but was kind enough to edit it out when pointed out how terribly rude it was. Things like this hurt people's chances of selling/trading, and can derail a thread horribly. If someone has a bad price, before or after shipping, then maybe they won't get sales, but to publicly point out their prices "suck" is really, REALLY rude and guarantees they won't get sales. There is nothing saying X titles command X price, maybe someone paid more than the new going rate for the title! Are comments like that allowed in that forum, or is it the usual "report this post" kinda deal.

I don't want to create trouble, I just don't want to see people's chances of business be hurt here by some people with a lack of manners. Any suggestions would be grand.

I semi agree.

But the people who are trying to sell, ask absurd trades or prices.. you can't deny that..

They don't deserve it..but it does seem like they are setting themselves up for it.. I mean seriously..

Four hd for heroes? Thats just laughable..

But that isn't up for us to determine. If they're too high, or ridiculous, people won't go for it and they won't get what they want. Right?

I agree that it's rude.If someone isn't interested at all in dealing then don't post in the thread.If they want to argue the price then pm the seller directly.
Being a dink doesn't benefit anyone.
