I second the advice to just ignore tells or mail from competitors unless they're offering to let you buy their remaining goods for cheap.I broke that rule once for a guy who complained that I was an evil scourge upon the AH for intruding on his niche market. I just had to reply to ask how his market practice was somehow holier than mine but of course there was no logic to his attitude. I was lucky in that he was not very savvy and I ended up buying a lot of his postings at below cost. In the end though, any time I spent thinking about him and thinking about what to say to him was time wasted. Better to spend that time evaluating which market to make the most gold in.Also as I'm coming to learn, no one is really a rational being. We make a lot of instant instinctive decisions and then our brain spends a lot of time rationalizing our choice. We very very rarely change our mind based on what others say or facts that contradict what we believe. But the closer we can get to being that cold calculating goblin merchant prince/princess, the better we'll do in the AH.
