    Correct me if I'm wrong.....

    An ambiguous "email sent" (or "interested") reply to a sellers swapmeet post is considered ".....extraneous commentary that doesn't contribute to the topic at hand." according to QRZ rules, correct?

    I know I don't like it when someone replies with that on one of my listings because it has a negative impact on the amount of interest in the for sale item as others assume it must be sold.

    I don't see any problem. Means to check your mail promptly.

    I only assume an item is sold when the seller flags it as such. A post 'Email Sent' or "PMd' is, as K8ERV says, is just a flag to ensure the seller checks for the communication and if not received, to let the interested party know. What is lacking in many for sale is the seller never updating the ad with a 'Sold' or 'no longer available'.

    "email sent" posts used to be removed. Don't think that's the case under the new rules.

    That's what I am trying to verify, hopefully a moderator chimes in for an official opinion.

    The seller can just reply "Still Available".
