    I totally agree with the first "I'll Take It" rule. I ran into complication selling some ham gear once where I was answering an "I'll take it pending the answer" first person when a second person "took it" before I could finish my reply to the first person. Everyone understanding that the first published, "I'll take it." wins eliminates a lot of refereeing.

    So I now understand the person who said, "No PM counter offers" was stating personal preference, not "rules".
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.

    It would be nice if there was a "actual photo required at the time of listing" rule. Seems like there are a lot of postings stating, "I'll try and take photos in a few days" or a week.... or no notation at all and folks having to request photos. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to see the actual condition of any used item before considering a purchase (especially on bigger ticket items) and seems to make more sense for a person to be fully prepared to sell an item before posting. "Like new" or other such can be subjective.

    Just a thought.

    Good question came in my PM today that I will add to the Q&A

    Q: Per PM conversation the purchaser made me an offer I would like to accept. Do I lower the price or how do I handle the I'll take it?

    A: Just have the purchaser post "I'll take it per PM conversation". That way the seller has met their I'll take it obligation and no one needs to know exactly what the offer was.
