Absolutely!!  I don't mind a seller not knowing what they are selling, 
as long as some common sense is used in the listing.  I do mind, when 
they don't know what they are selling, so they make stuff up, or make 
assumptions based on the direction the wind is blowing.  Often I email 
sellers, sometimes I get a positive response, sometimes nothing at all. 
    The average Joe's usually return my email, sometimes with more 
questions, sometimes just thanking me.  The pro's that know they're 
telling a story to potential buyers usually don't return my email.
