I'm being nice by even asking for permission here to do it but if there's no response I'm very tempted to just go ahead and do it anyway. I have like 10-15 people who we're at the point of talking about what they want to buy, I've sent over my paypal info or made a place and time to meet, or they've given me contact information, etc and suddenly no response to emails, texts, calls, PM's, etc.
Put them on your "No Soup For You" list.
Often when I get a question I search PM history to remind me of what happened in past exchanges. A couple of months ago I received a request from someone who asked me to look through unlisted inventory for some particular items. I found them. Then he asked for measurements, which I provided. Time passes...I reminded him by PM that I expect a response when I provide special request info. He said he would get back to me soon. Then... nothing.
Today he hit me with a request for another type of item in a specific size. In other words, now I am being asked again to search my backlog inventory for a particular size, with a vague description of what he wants.
