   Tried doing a deal with someone here and I think it's ignorant NOT to return e mails when a newbie has a legit. question about a product!
       Won't name out of respect for the member here.

 Without having to name the member, can you ask your question here or is it specific to the 'deal'?

Item sold so it doesn't matter now. Just asked what came with the item.

You have no callsign, thus no identity to another ham.  We prefer not to deal with potential scammers, and your lack of a callsign outs you pretty hard as a potential scammer.

It is more than likely the lack of a call on your ID...  Most hams sell to people they can ID, or believe they can ID.  Not saying your ID is bad, just that is how the world works...

Irritating?  Yes.  Enough to get ones panties in a wad?  Probably not.  Shake your head and move on looking for the item.  It will come up again sooner or later.

I use this persona due to having my callsign plastered all over the internet back in the nineties.  I don't do any selling on the ham sites very often and use eBay for most of my buying.  Way to many scammers grabbing a persons call after they post a for sale ad. 

We go to great lengths to protect ourselves from identity theft in the real world, why wouldn't you do the same on the internet?

HAMMYGUY:

I agree!

If somebody wants to check me out, all they have to do is send me an email:  "Call me about the gear."

Unfortunately, I think too many hams are too lazy and want everything laid out for them so they don't have to do anything or, worst, think.
