It's just a remarkable luxury to have the TH Marketplace available to us. I have utilized it for many years both buying and selling and many, many thanks to the Trumpet Herald for offering this. That said, I wish more of the people who have responded to the ads I've run in the past would actually READ the ad. I get emails asking questions that are clearly worded in my ads. The most often one is "do you take PayPal"? Or "what is the cost of that item"? Both are always stated clearly in my ads and yet I have to wonder if people actually read through the ad. Maybe it's my age showing but it ain't brain surgery.

Tony, I have noticed this development in several arenas.

It is sad and frustrating that our societal shift to "click and get it quick" has eroded reading comprehension skills. I challenge a similarly aged (mid-life) friend on this all the time when he does exactly what you just described.

You aren't alone in your observation.
