Most people wouldn't change the title - I'm guessing - unless they do an awful lot of buying off of Craigslist. Most people would just do a reply to the ad. I do a reply, ask for their phone number, location, and put in my phone # and location. I am always very polite. I usually get responses. I have several machines I bought off of Craigslist. It is the ones that don't put a phone number that seem to ignore e-mails.

    Yes, I respond to all e-mails even though they're sometimes just asking if it's available...and I don't change the title either. The only ones I don't respond to are the obvious scams like, " consider your item sold and I'm out of town and would like to mail you a cashier's check" blah, blah, blah. I don't have anything selling right now, but I periodically put up things on CL that I don't want to deal with listing on ebay.

    When I respond to a craigslist add, I usually copy the whole thing into my e-mail (CTR-A, CTR-C, CTR-V) and then copy the title into the subject. Then I say I'm interested in this item and could they please call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx or send me their number so I can call them. Usually works, and there's no question about what item I'm asking about. FWIW!

    Ooops! Miriam, you probably wouldn't respond to my inquiry emails...

    This is what I routinely do for my own personal info when writing to a craigslist ad. I usually don't call first, even if they have a number, I prefer to not take up their time by calling until I find out some info. Then, in my email I copy/edit their Title which includes city, then copy/edit their ad text and then form my questions. 99% of the time I get responses. I do this so "I" know which request is concerning which ad since I do inquire sometimes to more than one ad/in more than one city.

    I only had one recently that never put their phone number in, I wrote, no response from them. I wrote again, no response... again. Then, 3 days later they replaced their exact same ad, no phone number and they did not respond to two more emails from me. THAT was frustrating for 2 reasons: 1) they left no other way to contact them 2)DH and I reallllllly wanted that machine! My conclusion was that 'they' were fishing, either for email addresses OR to test the market response.

    i do this also so that i can know which ad i responded to. and in the title along with their info i may type something like "have questions" or "still available???" or "i'm interested" so hopefully they will at least look at the response and not think it is spam.

    Nope...I'm around, just super busy this week! Was busy before the girls got here trying to make everything nice. They got here and I got to spend a day with them before William took them to Idaho to see his mom. While they've been gone, I've been bustin' butt to get a cabinet refinished....someone had painted it with stain...very DARK stain...no finish on top of it...so it was not only black/dirty, but sticky/gummy as well... almost finished tho!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    it may be already too late to drive out there (about 40 miles) to see what this machine is. but i am sure debating it. i have some extra room in my car trunk.

    I would be super torn about whether to drive over. It's a ways, and about 4 gallons of gas....
