    You can't "snipe" an ad.

    Snipe is an auction bidding tool!!!!

    It may not be a snipe but what do you call snatching the response to someone else's want ad. Hijacked?

    Hi Thunderthumb,

    I'm sorry that someone beat you to the item you were seeking on your thread.

    I thought I saw a bunch of posts here debating if you got sniped or hijacked or what-not...
    so I thought I need to respond.

    For those who believe it's strictly "first come first serve" or "ya snooze ya lose"... I would tend to disagree.
    I sincerely believe that if this happened to them, that they too would be upset.

    I'm hoping that the person who grabbed the offer did not have bad intentions,
    but was perhaps not aware they were breaking any sort of protocall for classified ad "wanted" threads.

    I don't want to debate or preach about what might be the proper internet etiquette here,
    but to merely state that the philosophy I try to adhere to here on the OWH Slot Car Talk forum is "The Golden Rule".
    "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto to you"
    or basically to treat others with the same courtesy and respect that you wish to be treated.

    Mainly - we need to keep in mind that we are FRIENDS here - a bunch of old weird geeks who share a love for this same little weird hobby,
    whether we have met in person or only online, from all corners of the planet.
    So let's behave like friends, OK?

    Or I could just say "My board - my rules" - but "my rules" are mostly based on The Golden Rule.

    So... I would tend to agree with your first post... if someone is also seeking the same or similar item...
    then "next time place your own ad".

    I'm hoping that you are able to find a similar item from someone else who has contacted you.

    Happy New Year!!!

    When you don't respond in a timely fashion and when you do it's with a lowball offer., as a seller it's a bird in the hand!,

    I guess some people want everything for free, or at least dirt cheap

    Funny how there is always another side to the story/bleat.
