Ok @Mj_206, you've twisted my arm...
I'm well documented on this but my policy is to never be rude. Either point out my item is brand new (because most of my items are) and priced $XXX below usual price, or remind them my price is marked firm.
When I price items firm, I state it in the first line of my description as well as check the box. I counter, usual very close to asking but that's when some get very nasty, and I just report as needed. I don't get into much, just "thanks, have a nice day".
