you are not allowed to link to ebay in the fs rules, the trouble is mods dont read threads, so all rules are enforced, but they rely on others to report, if no reports go on then there probably not seen, it isnt there ignored

i think most of the rules on here are because of members abusing the board, so anyone to blame, then blame the members using the board

i see what you're saying, but only the reported get punished? No one really links to ebay they just say, "i can get it cheaper on fleabay". If mods can't enforce a rule then why have it? Its like having the rule of law and no police to enforce it.

I'm not out to blame anyone. I agree with most of the rules but just maybe suggesting this should be changed. Simply locking threads for unfair bumping would sort this rule out.

sometimes common sense has to kick in, the police enforce laws, doesnt mean people dont get away with breaking it, the rules are there, the fs board is and has always been self moderated to a point, meaning moderated by members, or wannabe mods some call them, although they dont seem to call them that when they stop someone being scammed :thumbsup:

I'm all for that but so so so so so many people get away with such things as placing a wanted ad two places at once. Whats the point in having the rule. Anyone can and probably does break it. No one is gonna get scammed with this rule.

I think the unfair bumping rule should cover this rule. After all thats why its in place. Its not there to stop anyone getting ripped off. Its a case of being fair. Whats also not fair is not being allowed to shop around for the best deal.
