Question about negative feedback

Is it proper to leave negative sales feedback in this case.
Seller recieve PM from buyer saying he is interested and wants a shipping quote.
Seller asks for address to get quote says he will get back to him in a day.
Seller gets real busy and 5 days later hasn't given a quote yet.
Buyer gives negative feedback based on the delayed shipping quote.
There is no confirmed sale nor any money exchanged hands.

Opinions?

WTF. If the seller doesn't want to sell the items he doesnt have to. Sure 5 days is bad, but when no money or items has exchanged hands negative feedback is just retarded.
I could NEARLY (emphasis on nearly) understand negative feedback if it were a retailer, but even retailers have lives too!

No rude interactions?
Nothing exchanged?

The "buyer" can just eff off.

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?

to be the only time negative feed back should be left if a deal went south if its just a general inqury then no feedback should be left like if it was the other way around would the buyer want to get negative feed back cause it took to long to send his address its a quote nothing more nothing less.

On the other hand, the potential seller could see the seller as a 'flaker'.

Keep in mind just how many of you give negative feedback if someone flakes.

If shipping is delayed, that would deserve a negative feedback, but slow on shipping quote doesn't since there isn't an agreement between buyer and seller.

However, if a seller refuses to sell after agreeing to a price because of a higher offer, then a negative feedback is warranted. (ie Not Honouring prices)

It would be nice to see all threads in the Buy/Sell section required to list a sellng price to prevent this kind of auction typed selling.

Why not neutral feedback? That is an option as well.

I wouldn't give a feed back at all in this situation. I only leave -ve if someone doesnt ship something after being paid/ product arrived in worse condition than described.

i would check to see if he gave negative feedback to people who flaked out on him. imho the trader rating should only be used for completed trades so it is only fair: if the seller leaves neg feedback for flaking buyers, its only fair to leave neg feedback for a flaking buyer.

6 months and im still waiting for a shipping quote after an item was confirmed as available and a transaction agreed on.

As I said before, you two weren't in a COMMITTED state. ie If he offered you $30 S&H, you'd probably backed away from the deal.

If everyone here start leaving negative feedbacks for flakey buyer/seller, the whole system would be messed. Their feedback would only show their indecisiveness, but not their trading ethics.

It does show there trading ethics it shows that they flaked, does not matter at what stage they flake, they still flaked. Or in this case thinks its ok to dick around becuse he offers low prices.

That negative feedback ought to be removed. The system is intended to provide public details about a buyer and seller after a transaction has occured, not a potential buyer or seller for something that hasn't happened yet unless the violations are particularly egregious.

Gcoap is in the wrong for leaving negative feedback for the sole reason that he wasn't responded to promptly. How do you know his mother didn't die in a horrible car crash and he was 1000 km away attending her funeral? If you were so concerned about purchasing his product you ought to have sent him another message asking if he'd received the previous one, that at least would have demonstrated something of a commitment to making a purchase. However by the sounds of it no other efforts were made on YOUR behalf to establish further communications, you just jumped to a hasty conclusion and utilized a tool which, by most standards, you hadn't the right to use yet.

I hope a mod is able to clear Gonepostal's record of this asinine charge.
