    On the hamb when you post a car for sale nobody can post on the thread exept the op. interested buyers can send a pm and thats it. no crummy comments etc. What do you think any way to set up a for sale sction like that. It would cut down on some bs

    It would also get rid of a lot of good stuff.
    Like asking if someone nearby can take a look at it.
    Or reports from people that have actually seen the car.
    While I don't approve of people cutting down sellers unless they are acting like jerks, there are lots of sterile places people can post for sale items. Like Craigslist for example.
    Even Ebay allows comments.

    That was the purpose of lounge and WW.
    Places to toss stuff out rather than have it in the parts of the site that were set aside for serious issues.
    Side issues and opinions are part of human nature.
    If there is no communication, what is the point of a site like this?

    but some stuff was so negative in the sales part. I just think opinions should be left out of the sales

    Yeah, and many made occasional mistakes, and some had to be reminded over and over, but for the most part people kept to the lower half of the site.
    I don't think the previous system was that flawed.
    If the people doing that kind of thing in the top half of the site were publically reprimanded for doing so, I believe would have been easy to control. That worked very well in the tech section.
    As I type this, I realize that this really belongs in another section.
    However, this is why the other sections exist.

    The negative stuff I saw was mainly related to the ad itself. Some here take offense to poorly worded ads lacking information such as location or price, some here take offense to people joining only to sell things, and some were just bitter and barked at everyone incessantly regardless of the thread subject. ^^not going to name names, of course.
