To some extent I’m getting conflicting suggestions on how “loose” to be when selecting new guests to host. Some people say to be cautious and selective. Others are more relaxed. For now, at least, I think I’ll err on the cautious side. Till I get more experience, anyway.
I thought Airbnb made it difficult, if not impossible, to contact people off-site. And no, I basically have/had no way of contacting him except via Airbnb. I don’t even have a full name. Though at this point, the issue is moot.
Ok, so I don’t have to take any other action such as refusing the query? Will it expire on its own?
I get the feeling that both you and @jaquo are politely trying to say (without saying), that I should try to write a friendlier reply. I’ll try to do better next time.
I will, thanks. Thanks for the advice.
