I received a wait listed book and must have been busy that day and not looked at it but marked it received.
when I went to read it several months later. It was so gross with so many stains on most pages-it grossed me out to even touch the book
once I opened it. it went straight to the trash. It was my fault for not checking out the book when I received it-
but I would prefer not to receive books from that poster in the future as there is no way they could have considered that
a postable book!
Can we block trades from specific members?
Yeah they only have the "Ignore this member" in the forums, as far as I can tell it doesn't affect any trading. I'll put the FAQ for you here though ^__^. I'd blacklist them myself too!
There isn't a way to block trades with a given member since PBS is based on FIFO (first in, first out.)...what you would need to do is keep a notebook with that person's name and then decline any requests of yours that come from her. Unfortunately, if it's a wishlisted book and you cancel, that book is removed from your wishlist and when you add it back, you will be at the end of the line. You also would probably need to take all your wishlisted books off auto-request in case they post a book and send it before you can cancel. Some people also add people they don't want to trade with to the buddy list--if they don't have 'auto accept' on though you may get a PM from them asking why you want to be buddies.
Keep in mind that if this was several months ago, it's entirely possible that that person was new then, and now knows what the posting guidelines are and has become a model trader. Or maybe they didn't learn and had so many RWAPs that PBS suspended their account. Or they may not even be a member anymore. I
personally think the FIFO system works well and really haven't had enough of a problem with anyone--either in trades or on forums--to want to 'ban' them. If they have a book I have on my wishlist, I don't much care if they're Attila the Hun...send the book! LOL
