I agree that it would be nice if people followed the ad. But if you didn't have the cash, I guess you could argue what's the harm in asking? At worst, the seller says no. You weren't going to be able to buy it normally anyhow, so you're no worse off.
Using it as an example, the house-staining offer was actually a bit interesting. If that was something you'd really needed, and were willing to do, the guy gets what he needs, you're happy, and there was no cash required.
Some of the folks at work use Venmo, though I have not tried it. I believe it's supposed to make it easy to pay your friends. One example would be a bunch of people going to dinner. You don't have to request separate checks, you just Venmo what you owe to the person who paid.
