The new 'No Ad-Spoiling' Rule
Sputnik go and register on rad bmx and look for my for sale on a set of profile cranks. Of which there are umpteen variations some cheap some not. And some twonk posted a link to some common cheap ones when mine were rare ltd edition.
Neaelglover I thinkyou were away the day they did reading. Its their forum therefore a poll will change nothing.Do you notsee the logic fail in your statement?Posted 5 years ago
Timidwheeler. I don’t care, Mark sees it as a problem, its his forum, looks like its going my way.l read the snowchains post, and whilst the seller obviously lost his rag, he was correct. Its like trying to sell a carbon fs 29er and someone pointing out that halfords do a fs bike for 179 delivered.Posted 5 years agojota180Member
The specific ‘no ad spoiling’ rule is unnecessary IMO
The current rules already cover it enough
All it’s done is give possible scammers another bit of protection by gagging peer criticism.Posted 5 years ago
The official input on here when genuine scams have been uncovered is often remarkable only by it’s absence.sputnikMember
Coleman, I see your reason to be miffed with the spoiler on your thread. For starters he was talking about a totally different product of lower quality and your product was offered at a very reasonable price compared to what you paid for them. The spoiler should be reported by you and rapped on the knuckles. But i think anyone reading your FS add could have seen that and would not think you were over pricing. It was like saying Halfords have a bike for £80 and therefore the £1000 you are asking for your Ibis Mojo is too much 🙂
Toys mate, you are taking it too serious! I was just curious to see how your sale was spoiled. Couldn’t find it and had to ask. Can’t be bothered with scouring the net for an example. And I am no white knight, cant remember ever intervening in a FS add with a “that is cheaper over there”.Posted 5 years agoDickyboyMember
How’s about a limit on the number of classified posts per user per month? Would hopefully put off some traders & pointless reposting of overpriced tat, would also slow down the time taken for ads to drop off the front page?
I’m guessing that stw towers are only interested in the page hit rate though 🙁Posted 5 years agofunkrodentSubscriber
Blimey, that’s opened a can of worms! Never sold on here but have bought quite a few things. Should be pointed out that I’ve yet to have a bad experience. That said I always look at user history before buying. When I saw the initiative from Mark, I thought “great”. I’ve seen a few ads where somebody has commented in a way that seems to trash any chance of the seller making a sale, seemed a bit off to me. That said, I can also understand the community aspect of what people are saying. I suppose the bottom line is at what point do a group of people decide that they are the self-appointed arbiters of all that is right and proper? I understand (and fully support) action if a particular seller is trading, or spamming or scamming, but if someone has priced an article too high that’s ultimately between them and the potential purchaser. If you see someone you know expressing interest, email them. If you think the seller needs re-educating, email them. If they haven’t put their email in their account, tough. Most of the “interventions” I’ve seen, whether well meaning or not, have been crass and out of place and remind me of little more than the type of old woman who just can’t stop herself from twitching those curtains…Posted 5 years ago
