very well put, chances are if they are active, then they are trying to come up with a counter offer for you

Nice psychology.

I also hate when people keep on making bullsh*t offers after you've already politely given notes more than once saying "I am not interested in a trade at this moment." Damn public leagues...

I usually respond right away if the deal is a clunker or if I really like it. Usually though, it's a borderline trade so I'll want to think about it or try to come up with a counter. In that event, I usually email the guy and say something like "That's an interesting offer. Can I think about it?" Psychologically, that gives him some "ownership" in the deal and sets up well for a counteroffer. It's also common courtesy.

I never leave trades pending in the hopes that someone will get hurt. That's skanky. Besides, the commish would probably veto anyway. We have an unwritten rule in our league that a trade is cancelled if one of the guys go down while the trade is pending.
