Ok, it's not often I post in the feedback section, as I am generally happy using the site and obviously have the choice to use it or not.
I do however have a bit of an issue these days with the for sale/trade forum. I think it's about time the section was either closed or at least hidden to only certain members with good reputation and a high post count. This is something that has been mentioned a number of times over the last few years, but with the introduction of the new site, it seems more 'newbies' and 'opportunists' have signed up to scam or avoid ebay fees but still treat the place like ebay.
I have been a member for a while, and have a good reputation in the for sale section (IMHO). It just seems to be now that the front page has been removed, more new people who previously may have only looked at the front page, have been wodering in and seeing opportunities...this is great for the 99% of new members, but it's those scumbags who scam that have caused so many problems of late in the for sale section.
Now, some of this is because I have fallen foul of a scammer of late, and the rest is because i'm not the only one. I know there is always an option to not use the section, but have met some very nice people through it and done a multitude of great deals there. It would be a shame to let it deteriorate any further.
I just really want others thoughts and opinions on this
