    Over the past few weeks, a lot of For Sale threads have gone off topic.
    Unhelpful comments about the price, quality of the fish/hardware etc are not cool.

    If you are genuinely interested in the item for sale, feel free to ask the seller relevant questions.
    Otherwise please show respect and refrain from posting on the thread.

    Thanks

    This is already posted in the sticky in each classifieds section "RULES for buying and selling", under the subsection Posting Etiquette. It's openly accessible.

    If a user goes against the rules, I don't think that it is unreasonably harsh for a mod to delete the offending post, and sending a message/warning to the offending user, linking them back to the thread I have linked to above. It's all a part of following and enforcing the rules of an online community.

    I agree.. thanks....especially taking into consideration that I had already given a friendly reminder which was ignored... it is sad harsh action has to be taken..

    I think its very rude and unethical
    If its too expensive.. leave it.. no one is forcing anyone to buy
    If you want to negotiate, contact the OP
