Normal person: *lose faith in humanity, delete, block*
1) would be ridiculed for the outrageously high asking price;
2) want to pretend that the article for sale isn't in a terrible state of repair;
3) are so bone idle that they just cannot be bothered to put effort into typing a few more words for those that might not be interested anyway; and/or,
4) have nothing for sale, have no friends and this is the path-of-least-effort for human contact (however brief that will inevitably turn out to be).
But since now most electronic communication is instant (you get notified immediately about an incoming message or you see the message immediately) inbox can be more of an exception.
Specifically inbox turns in to a verb with wider usage of Facebook where the more regular way of communicating is posting messages on somebody's wall, commenting on them or using the Facebook chat (instant messaging, or IM like in Yahoo IM, AOL IM, etc). So when users want to switch from these more popular methods to sending a message more like an email (send and wait for recipient to read and respond) they can request "inbox me" or notify - "I will inbox you".
Inbox-ing is also one of the methods of going in to a private, one-on-one, conversation where only the sender and recipient (unless others are addressed too) see the messages exchanged. In Facebook all friends, friends of friends or public (depending on privacy settings) can read a conversation carried out by wall posts and comments.
