Taking this thread in a different direction. The first thing that I thought of was that one owner posted an owner's trade proposal for the league to see. Now this would be pretty low but I'm pretty close to doing this since I've been getting the same lopsided offers from the same owner all season. I've started sending back by own horrendously lopsided offers in the hope that he understands that he's an idiot.
I've had the same thing happen to me over the past few months. I responded the same way by sending back ridiculous proposals. I'm debating the same approach by posting some of the offers, but probably won't as that is probably taking it too far. The problem is, this guy is notorious for sending bogus offers.
