    I think this should be updated to include a "No Thread-Shitting" Addendum.

    It has been happening a lot lately were a seller's thread has been bombarded with "You are asking too much for that" or "I can get those new for that price".

    Just because one may not agree with a price or offer for a product doesn't mean one should post how it can be purchased somewhere else for less, especially in a derogatory manner. A simple suggestion of a price consideration VIA PM in a respectful manner would suffice if one is that concerned about it. Besides, a prospective buyer should already know or at least do some research prior to buying.

    Posting in a B/S/t thread should be reserved to only positive comments and of course legitimate questions.

    That is all.

    Freedom of (forum) Speech?

    I agree we should keep it positive, but I don't see the harm in posting a link to where the item is cheaper if it is overpriced. I agree the buyer is always responsible to do their own research, but sometimes the seller forgets to do theirs.

    If we want to implement new rules, may I recommend a post limit, say 10 posts, prior to using the b/s/t forum.

    Agreed. Well, with the exception of Rich (SS) who should be allowed to do anything he wants short of igniting his underwear in public places or on international flights.

    This could be included as an addendum to paragraph 7a, subset 22i, inclusive of all other migratory concepts which are substantially insecure in accordance with the...

    hmm...

    It's OK to post a link... but start a new thread for it... don't put it in somebody's B/S/T thread... :thumbsup:

    Good idea? Maybe.

    Well sometimes people are selling crap or asking WAY too much. I for one think that we should be fair to all those involved. If you want top, top dollar - sell it on ebay with a Buy It Now dealio. Didn't ebay do the same thing - they don't allow negative comments. I guess I'm just a free market kind of guy and tend to think fair people put together fair deals. Then again that is what I do everyday for work so I may think differently.

    buyer beware....post limits for BST threads...and you have to choose between the icons of WTB, WTT, WTS in order for a thread to be posted and that gets posted at the beginning of the header.
