    Hey just a suggestion, but I think classified thread titles should be restricted to the names of the items for sale + "fs/ft".

    This way you can see everything that's current and for sale at a glance. But when people use thread titles like "Mind-boggling savings inside!" it's like they're withholding information in order to trick you into checking out their thread.

    Of course, they may have the best of intentions and just not thought about it.

    Meh, I don't think it's a big deal. Plus sometimes people are selling an array of items and there's no real way to list everything in the title. As such, it's just easier to say, "Lots of stuff FS, check it out!"

    Agree with the OP and the last 2 posts. I use the same format when I sell big ticket items.....but what do I know? ;-)
