I understand that Iowa2 has not posted anything much and, on the face of it, looked like a first timer trying to sell stuff straight away, but I'm not sure that is really relevant. We have a forum for selling gear and, unless very low user postings start to become the norm and there are complaints of dodgy gear being sold, I am not sure we ought to look to regulate that too much. One of the reasons I have stuck with this forum (and to an extent with the brand) is because of its relaxed and generally friendly attitude and I think we should keep it that way if we can. Besides, the chap can take a very decent photo!

Well, that's my tuppence worth, time to get back in my box.
Nicely said.

Even if you don't agree with this, let's just agree to disagree
