I've had people complain to me privately that posting about an item for auction killed their chance of getting a deal. Consequently, I only post items that have a BIN price. As for notifying a seller that their asking price is too low or too high, that's not something I do. YMMV.

I certainly appreciate any posts here and it helped me find many times something I was looking for and even get great deals. As far as posting auction type listings I haven’t even thought about this. Just posting something I found interesting but will try to remember not to post links without BIN price.

Again, I wasn't trying to stand on one side or the other of the issue.
Some old Yorks, Martins and maybe a rotary King...

It's not a hard-and-fast rule anywhere so far ask I know, but I had a few complaints, so I stopped doing it. If I see something exceptionally cool (like a rotary King or a Sander) up for auction, however, I might still post it.

It isn't the same - now there's a mouthpiece and tuning bit.

My guess is it's people who already own one contacting the seller.

It’s private listing too so we can’t see if that “bidder” has a zero feedback...

Yes, Gold plated Helleberg and Tuning Bit added $1k. Good observation.

I was told the seller pulled it early by an anonymous source who was interested in placing a last minute bid.
