Re: Trading on the e-group forum

It's not an over-reaction because this is not the result of just one transaction or one seller. It's a trend that has been escalating for several years, during which time there have been a number of traders making multiple transactions and we have taken action against some of these following complaints from other members. It has been a subject of ongoing debate amongst the admin and mod team and, far from over-reacting, we have been remarkably tolerent for the very reason that this is a friendly forum and we don't wish to appear heavy handed. However, with the For Sale board being increasingly used in a manner that was not envisaged or intended when it was established, we reluctantly feel it is time to re-establish the principles on which it is based.
