I personally leave a rating on every deal I do, whether it is a trade, sale, or buy. I also notice there are several people who do not leave a rating till after you do, and sometimes none at all. Then again, they are usually people that I only do 1 transaction with. But at the same time, I think its only common courtesy to leave a rating, plus it will help minimize the amount of new or not so known members from getting burned or ripped off as they will see more accurate histories of users dealings.
A lot of the "I think I've been ripped off threads" do not seem to end in a negative rating for the accused, which to me seems misleading.
Although, I wouldnt mind seeing a few more options on the ratings (ie: S+, S, N, S-, where the S would be for a good deal but maybe they were slow on the shipping or communication).
