I think it depends at what time of day you send the message... sometimes it's instant, other times maybe two days max.

I see a lot of vendors get criticism for the delay in responses, and though I'm sure there a few non-communicative sellers out there, I think a lot of the time some blame can be allocated to the somewhat confusing "organisation" of the messaging interface, thus I reckon messages just end up getting lost in the abyss. Add supply and demand pressures, and it must be horrendous trying to keep on top messages.

Ramble over.

Rest assured, MJ will be in touch I'm sure of it :-)
