    Why dont people respond ?

    dont understand why this happens and it happens a lot.

    someone contacts you, to inquire about a card you have for trade, you return the pm in a timely fashion and then ..... nothing. 1 day goes by, well they are busy
    second day goes by -- still busy life is hectic, so you send a reminder. and still nothing.
    and they initiated the process. why?
    how does taking less than a minute to type a no thank you hurt anyone? where did civility go.

    Keep in mind some people have a lot of social anxiety (which gets triggered by even small things like an interaction online). I know for quite a few people the trade process is really stressful for them for that reason and so typically they're limited to just waiting for offers and hopefully accepting them - maybe you had a card they were really interested in and so they made the jump to contact you about it which was probably super tough for them - but if your response wasn't a streamlined "DEAL" but rather a negotiation that might have scared them off (not because you did anything wrong but some people's social anxiety is really really intense)

    Now some people are just kicking tires and looking to catch a sucker too
