Interaction with a Craigslist Seller

My brother buys and sells dirtbikes in Houston as a hobby and he had a recent email conversation from a seller with an ad like this:

As the ad says, "You can contact meat."  More hilarity below:

My brother:  $3k is the best I can do today. but you could have it sold!

Seller:  lol naw dude, I paid 7150, now why would I do that?

My brother:  Ok, just take it as an offer, thanks.

Seller:  Look kid, how old are you? I might just look out for you.

My brother:  28.

Seller:  2ppl already asked me for 3k, let me give it some thought and I'll get back to you.

My brother:  You said OBO, what's been the best offer so far?

Seller:  Yea, but I said 4300 obo, how do you go to 3000?

My brother:  Hah, well to be honest, the way your ad was written, it sounded like a kid was selling it! Go fix all the spelling mistakes and make it look like a grown man owns it and you may get decent offers. I buy and sell bikes so this isn't uncommon to lowball and some just want it out when you throw a cash offer at them. Obviously, your English is better than the ad, so sorry to offend with the lowball.

Seller:  Lol, dude if you bught and sold bike, you would known wats up as soon as you see the bike, who gives a Fuck about spelling, grow up bitch, and don't waste pols time, I bet your one of those white honkie cracker muther fuckers. lol low baller you are. well let me go fix my spelling little bitch, o did I spell that right hoe

My brother:  I was just being honest with you. If it was written out I probably wouldn't have made the offer because it would sell for 4, that's not a bad price you're asking. But I'm not the only one offering 3k, right? I know it sounds dumb for people to care about the ad, but it can make a difference.

Seller:  The lowest off is was 3000.  Your comin at me like I'm a chump.

My brother:  Don't take it that way. You've gotta be doing pretty well to have a brand new bike! It's just when I saw the ad, I figured it was from some guy out in the woods that would take 3000. I know that's not the case, so I'm just trying to help get you something better than 3000. Clean up the ad, thank me later, good luck. 3800 isn't bad at all, tell him to meet you at 4, not a bad deal for either of you. That's what they're going for nationally, check for pricing, you're right on the money.

Seller:  I feel you...
