'For Sale' forum policy being circumvented?

    OK, so I've seen a few discussions about this and people complaining about the fact they can't post ads for free to sell their stuff .

    But then this morning I noticed loads of threads coming up, where non-supporters are posting on old threads started in the 'Wanted' section and adding their own stuff ...:meh:

    As in - I have something similar to that for sale - it's an xxxxx at $450 - contact me... etc. etc.

    So what's to stop non-supporters doing this - doesn't it make a mockery of having the policy?

    I started sending "bad post" reports, but after the umpteenth and no response, I gave up.... :confused:

    Mystified.....

    Good question. IMO, the mods should be pretty harsh with these people. I mean, it's not like they're being ignorant of the forum rules, they are flat out "decieving" the TB filters into allowing them to post items for sale. I'd say the mods should delete posts like this without warning, maybe a temporary ban, and permanently ban anyone who does it again.

    this has been an issue with the mods and paul for a while.

    we just reached a new rule. check the wanted section for it.

    OK thanks - that makes a lot of sense!
