This has been addressed before...conditions and questions with an "I'll take it" do not make it an "I'll take it".
There seems to be good reason for this, since in the past people have used these conditions to welch, demand a refund, etc., etc..
The potential buyer should have asked his questions and got them answered first before throwing down an "I'll take it" with conditions.
Perhaps the seller could have been more patient, but the seller did have what is described as an unconditional "I'll take it" from buyer #2.
Given the two buyers, the seller would have been justified to go right to buyer #2, as per our EE rules.
Personally, if I were buyer #1, I would have been in a position to give a quick reply to the seller's response with the questions answered if I really wanted the stuff.
There is a problem with buyers delaying their responses which in many cases hangs up selling items...with many occurences where the buyer ultimately doesn't want it...after waiting days to communicate this.
Now the seller could have initially indicated that he did need a quick response from potential buyers.
I myself would have most likely given a 24 hour deadline.

Now how in the hell do you know who I am and what I’m capable of? You seem to think I wouldn’t say the same things to your face; well you are wrong on that account Mr. You are very wrong and I would take much delight in meeting you in person; you assume too much Tom as I would pinch your pin fucking head off. That’s it for the emails ass hole unless you want to give me and address so we can meet and press the flesh so to speak? 45 fucking minutes; what do you think you’re running a fast fucking ammo drive through? All I can say is, you did wrong and you fucking know it!
Oh buy the way you said shit in your response; doesn’t this put you on my level? Bad, bad boy!
