Posting Etiquette Reminder

A friendly reminder of posting etiquette for the Sales section:

Quote:
Etiquette for posting
It is inappropriate to throw cold water on the For Sale threads posted by other members or a vendor by attacking the price or quality of the SKY, parts or service being offered for sale or suggesting alternate sources for the item.

If you donít like the price or the item being offered, move on.

It boils down to this: If your contribution to a For Sale thread does not advance the sale of the item being offered, youíre probably in the way and shouldnít be in the thread. If you donít like the deal, you should take it to e-mail or IMs.

NOTE TO USERS OF THE FOR SALE SECTION

All postings are not for discussion. This section can be thought of as an online classified ad.

All transactions are "caveat emptor" (let the buyer beware), and it is the responsibility of the buyer to research their sale. RESEARCH, QUESTIONS NOT DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE SALE POSTED, DISCUSSION OF 'FAIR PRICE', ETC. CONDUCTED WITHIN A FOR SALE THREAD ARE CONSIDERED THROWING COLD WATER ON THE SALE AND ARE NOT ALLOWED. There are many sources for researching and discussion such topics. Just don't do it here.

Too many members take this forum personally. It is fun. This is not life support.

The other week a used item was sold for a price even higher than the new item. Of course I did what every forum member should do, keep silent and let our friend pay too much.

I felt real good about doing the right thing.
The rule doesn't prevent you from giving advice to the seller in a private message or email, just says not to comment in public.

That's kinda funny! If you're saying what I think you're saying (it's a bit difficult to parse), MM was saying the same thing as you!

Reminder..

We have enough hard line sales in our life without having to put up sales scavengers on our blog. If these people can't sell their product in the real world they need to be reminded to lay off of pounding people on this blog. And there is nothing wrong with reminding them of that. Now let's move on..

I talked a bit to Doc in PM and I believe his issue was if someone is asking a ton for their items here on the forum (blog) that members should be able to call them out on it.

Personally I don't have a problem either way as I feel that if something is overpriced it won't sell and thus the seller with either lower the price or not sell it. Kind of takes care of itself. However, rules are rules and I didn't make (all) of them. LOL

But I also see Doc's position on saving the uninformed from being taken advantage of. Reality is though that there is plenty of information here to figure out if a price is fair or not and we have posts here all the time asking about whether or not the price of something is in line with what the market normally bears.
