Web Etiquette, and being a jerk to idiots

I posted various things on craigslist. One of them being one of my bass guitars. So, I get a message from some lady this morning, at 11:13 saying she is interested, and asking questions about the bass.
"i am interested! please upload your Marron bass what i am seeing on ur post is not a lefty, i live in Yonkers,New York and will be willing to send the money by way of 'western union', tell me what year is the bass?(Marron Fender)?? please reply."

Before I reply, at 11:35, she writes me again telling me she is interested again:

" i am interested tell me, what yr. is it? please reply (914)457-
9245 ask 4 Pat."


Not being desperate to sell, I didn't feel like dealing with someone so irritatingly desperate to buy. Not to mention, shipping a bass to NY (where she is) would be a pain in the ass. And plus western union? Eh.

So, I write back simply:
"I'm not interested."

Her response?
"well why the hell you have it posted on craigs' list then dude? don't tell me it's ONLY RESERVED fo 'FLORIDIANS!!' what a FUCKTARD!"

My response to that?
"NM, I'm totally interested now!"

What will she say back? More to come, I hope!


Update!!!
She wrote me back:
"what is the year, is it a usa, or a 'MIJ'?"

My reply?

"NM I'm not interested."



She wrote back AGAIN. Really?

"U MUST BE MENTALLY CHALLENGED IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER! DELETE YOUR POST FROM 'CRAIGS LIST' BITCH!~"

Of course I replied:

"Mentally challenged? What does that mean? Is that an insult?"

UPDATE:

She wrote me back:
"YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT REPLY BACK BITCH!!!"

I replied:
"UR CAPS LOCK IS ON." (thanks to Shaquille O'neal for the inspiration on that one.)
