If the other team continues to offer bad trade after bad trade though, I like to post the trades on the message boards so that other teams are aware that the owner is just trying to rip people off.
Just today I was offered Zambrano + Cantu for my Pujols in a keeper league. The owner just wanted to know if Pujols was available for trade. It was actually the second trade offer I had received for Pujols today. The other offer being that I get Sizemore + Teixeria for my Pujols. I sent this offer information back to the first owner and asked if he could beat the offer.
This is what send bad messages and fights in leagues, when teams start posting bad offers on the message board, people get the wrong idea, and depending in which league EVERYONE in the league receives the email. Last year we had about 100 messages. We decided this will not be tolerated. If you were in our league, you receive a warning
then we KICK UR AZZ out. There's no need to post "what you think" is bad on the message board to get people upset. It doesn't do anyone good. Best thing to do is reject, offer a counter, and/or send a personal message to that owner, what your needs are, players you like, etc..
