Re: Trading on the e-group forum

I have made a tidy profit selling those bloody cloths on here, not enough to worry the tax man but enough to buy a lens. I was "trading" no doubt about it but didn't feel guilty as I felt what I was selling was good value. (once interest had waned on here I sold them a lot quicker elsewhere)

I have bought cameras and lenses here and also sold

I posted the wrong lens to someone once, doh! Because this is a nice place it was sorted out painlessly.

My point is I like looking at what is offered and what is bought I see no downside to a fairly free market, buyers and sellers make their own decisions, of note there seems to have been little or no fraudulent activity and agreed prices have resulted in goods delivered.

To me, with agreed being the operative word, that is a win win. I wouldn't buy Tim's camera on principal but hope he would still be allowed to post the ad in future.
