I wouldn't defend or justify the OP's response.

But I would say that when someone lowballs beyond reason (and I think it was beyond reason here), then its not really a real negotiation or even an honest offer. So its up to the seller to decide how to respond. The OP responded in his own way.

My point is: I don't agree with the lowballing mentality some people on these forums have.
