In this manuscript we introduce a new class of convex sets called quasi-absolutely convex and show that a Hausdorff locally convex topological vector space satisfies the weak anti-proximinal property if and only if every totally anti-proximinal quasi-absolutely convex subset is not rare. This improves results from \cite{GPtop} and provides a partial positive solution to a Ricceri's Conjectured posed in \cite{R} with many applications to the theory of partial differential equations. We also study the intrinsic structure of totally anti-proximinal convex subsets proving, among other things, that the absolutely convex hull of a linearly bounded totally anti-proximinal convex set must be finitely open. Finally, a new characterization of barrelledness in terms of comparison of norms is provided.
