Also people like to keep big fish for when I see another big fish that I want. I need the big cards to get other big cards.

They will send me an "open offer" of anywhere from 5-10 cards with a BV of $20-50. I counter with 2-5 cards with the same BV and they will automatically cancel the trade with a comment of "I don't trade inserts for SPs, or Base for Inserts, etc".
1) That's not an open offer
2) If BV is the same (especially under $50), does it really matter?
3) If you trade like this, then send a comment with your trade that you only trade base-base, insert-insert, etc
4) Don't just cancel the trade, counter with something (and a comment) and most people will easily find something else to make the trade
If not, it's a complete waste of everyone's time

Offers come all the time and thats because we have cards up for trade. I don't know what people will offer. I find it interesting. Kinda fun in away. I think the ones who are rude or just cancel with no reason are the ones who need to leave the trading alone. Jmo!
