There is currently nothing 'wrong' with it but this sort of thing deserves to be avoided.

Why should we have a problem with someone bumping their Buy/Sell/WTB thread ?  :-//

None of us use the forum in the same way or even visit the Buy/Sell/WTB board very often as I might only go there when I spot something posted there on the main forum page.
However, there was some apparent interest in what the guy offered but it didn't eventuate in a sale so the guy dropped the price and in doing so bumped it. Seen exactly this many times in the Buy/Sell/WTB board.

Yeah we need some very clear rules.

Like this for example:

Muttley Snickers:
My interpretation of the rules was that the Buy/Sell/Wanted section is somewhat reserved for those who contribute to the forum, giving advice and assistance to other members qualifies as a contribution and inturn permits usage of the B/S/W section.

The member in question had nine posts, four of which were asking for advice and the other five in relation to an item for sale, the moderators stated they took action based on a questionable location or IP address, not necessarily the members prior posts.

If beanflying wants to go buying from dodgy characters i would just let him go right ahead.

Brumby:
I've backed away from my request and have bought one off eBay.


Hopefully from a not too dodgy character (feedback is 100% with other tech sales, so we'll see).
