A seller on COMC can be willing to listen to offers without being obligated to accept them. There's nothing to even suggest there is.
Bartering has been around for ages, probably before currency. COMC allows seller to only get serious offers and not deal with low ball ones.
There is nothing unethical or dishonest about allowing offers and rejecting them.
I doubt a day goes by on this board where somebody makes an offer through the B/S/T section that gets rejected. Asking prices, offers, counter offers, rejections... they are all part of the hobby and always have been.

You TOLD the buyer what offer to make! The buyer didn't give you a low ball offer ... the buyer gave you the low ball offer that YOU told him to make.

If you're at a card show, you walk up to a dealer and say ... "I'm interested in this card" ... and he says "offer me $20" ... and when you offer $20, he says "No I won't accept that - but I will take $40" ... how would you respond?

I have had that sort of thing happen at a card show.
Not exactly but sort of. I had a very nice guy come to my table and ask if I would take certain amounts on several cards. And these were individual questions several minutes apart. I finally, being as polite as I could, told him we could do this a different way. How about if he makes an offer it needs to be one that he wants to actually buy the card for, not just to see how low can I go on it? .. I was very polite and smiled..It worked well and he spent somewhere around a grand with me...this was only a few weeks ago at a local show. Sometimes ya' just gotta say WTF, in a conciliatory tone.
