Whats the proper ettiqute on this...I feel its debatable/and or just a difference in philosophy, but if someone doesn't leave me feedback, I don't care or whine...I just move on. That said, I wait until a buyer does leave me feedback, and I then ALWAYS give them awesome feedback.
The vast majority of buyers won't read the details of your feedback. I usually post seller feedback after my buyer does. Most sellers I've dealt with hold back their feedback until I posted mine, so AFAIK, you're in the majority.
It's definitely not worth a neg. If you're worried about people reading it, just keep in mind that it'll roll off of the front page of your feedback after a few transactions. Almost nobody bothers to read the second page.
