Dear Craigs-list responders,
When responding to an ad offering free items, kindly refrain from doing so thusly:
(PHONE NUMBER) NEED REALLY BAD!
A more polite version might be found here:
Dear Extremely Kind Person Offering Highly Desirable Free Items,
On behalf of the entire world, thank you so much for your generosity. Might I inquire as to the disposition of said items? They would certainly come in quite handy in our household, and I await your response eagerly. I can be reached at (phone number), at your convenience.
.... Okay, okay, maybe that's a little thick, but honestly, if you are unable to use a computer without TYPING IN ALL CAPS then perhaps you should go back to loitering in bowling allies and leave the rest of us alone.
And, using all caps does not impress urgency any more than yelling at people who don't speak your language makes it any easier for them to understand you. Just sayin'.
