SYSTEM MESSAGE - TROLLING THE MARKETPLACE

SYSTEM MESSAGE - TROLLING

NO TROLLING THE MARKETPLACE.

If somebody posts something in the Marketplace at a price higher than what I think its worth, can I post a comment to that thread, where I challenge the value of the item?

NO.
.
.
.
.

If somebody posts something in the Marketplace, and I know it can be purchased elsewhere for a lesser price, can I post a link to the cheaper item?

NO.
.
.
.
.

If somebody posts something in the Marketplace, and I don’t understand why the seller is asking the price he posted, can I reply with a question asking the seller why he thinks the item is worth the price he is asking?

NO.
.
.
.
.

If somebody posts something in the Marketplace, and I have the same sort of thing for sale, can I just jump in the thread and offer MY item for sale right there in that thread?

NO.
.
.
.
.

If somebody posts something in the Marketplace, and I know the seller has some sort of issue where I don’t think people should do business with that seller, can I just jump in there and start raising hell about whatever may be my issue?

NO.
.
.
.

Who made up these rules, and how long have they existed, and how was I supposed to know them?

The owner of the board, Jen, made the rules.
The rules have been around since forever. The most recent posting was on July 20, 2004.
The rules are “STICKIED” on the front-page of the Marketplace forum
at http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showt...hreadid=114815
.
.
.

Can I ask questions about the item such as:
What is the condition?
What brand is it?
Where did it come from?
What color is it?
What size is it?
What kind of material is that?
Are any parts missing?
Does it work?

YES.
.
.
.


Can I ask any of the above questions just for the sake of being a smart-ass, or for bumping a buddy’s post, or for testing the limits of what I can get by with in the Marketplace forum?

NO.
.
.
.



Can I start my OWN thread in an appropriate forum, and raise hell about ANY of these issues?

YES
.
.
.


Will I get banned for complaining about the rules?

NO - not unless you do it in the Marketplace forum - in which case you might.

One more:

Q: If I am warned by a moderator or administrator about some specific conduct or incident in the marketplace forum, what will happen if I reply with some smart-ass remark, insult, or name-calling?

A: You will be banned.



It amazes me that I have to even tell anybody this.
