    We need to clean up our method of commenting on and posting within the Classified Forum !

    I have noticed a lot of people can’t resist F’g up someone else's sale with stupid comments based on something they think !

    Why hurt a member’s sale with a comment that doesn’t bring something good to the posting ?

    Why make a comment that may stop a sale in its tracks, just because of something you said; you might as well be a SPAMMER if you screw up a sale for no good reason.


    I would like the admin to consider changing rules on the Classified Forum and do not allow posting to ads that are not directly related to and will hurt a sale of the item.

    Also, IF you do know of a problem with the item, like you know it is a bad part for sale, and it is posted in the Classified Section, contact an Admin to make the call, it is not your responsibility to stop or F-up a sale just because you think so !

    I will get off the soap box now.
    Thanks for listening, LTRg

    I do agree with you, there is no need for off topic, or unwanted banter in he classifieds

    True. I never like seeing a for sale thread and half way down joe schmo says he can get the same thing elsewhere cheaper or that junk isn't worth $5.
    Sometimes a bit of friendly chatter is ok, sometimes it can lead to another deal or something useful.

    Way to speak up Scrambler. I've noticed this in a few forums I'm on, some have rules in place like this now and other don't. I tend not to try and sell things on the ones that don't.
