It's like talking to a brick wall lol. This could go on all night so i'll just leave it at that I think. Just one last thing, trust seems to be the main issue with yourself which I agree with however you need to be open to trust for it to work.

I've obviously hit a nerve there. This thread was made for a discussion yes, no need for the childish comments.

When your getting the legal threats and dealing with people who appear to make you guilty by association you'll understand why we are reluctant. We don't need the grief.

The time effort and money involved to properly administer any kind of secure system and checking up on the details given makes it an impossible task. Regardless of how other forums do it, that's their choice.

Until you do it for yourself and get all the unnecessary stress it causes then I'm sure we'll take heed of your valued pearls of wisdom.

Not at all, totally relaxed, nothing you can say would get my back up unless of course you want to start trading insults, but that's not my style

But this isn't really a discussion, its your opinion and my opinion and whatever I say to the contrary falls on death ears anyway so its a pointless discussion really isn't it.

Like wise. No matter what the members say at the end of the day we have no say how the site is ran.

As you say I have an opinion and you obviously think its worthless. Fair enough

Yup. I have no shame or reason to say otherwise.

Not sure if you were expecting some kind of denial, but your either free to use the site and your free not to use it and at no point did we take a penny off you. Great isn't it.

I'd happily pay a fee to use the site as long as I was getting use of its full facilities. I know of no other site I need to pay to become a member unless its for use of things like the classifieds.

Are you willing to step in an take legal responsibility for every advert and any comeback in the event of someone getting scammed?

I expect that if zboyd and mork didn't have to worry about legal action being started against them as well as the whining from the scammed people because you were ready to take the grief and liability then they may start to consider bringing back the for sale section.

Mork has already put forward a brilliant idea in this thread to which I agreed lol

What more can I say. As zboyd has said its all based on trust. Well you need to be open to it first.

Well maybe if people stopped with some of idiotic stuff and let the powers that be actually have the time to get things implimented, then stuff like the Sale section might be reinstated. ever thought of that one?

I missed you getting in on the action lol. No matter what steps are taken someone will always try it on. I've been using the forums for years now and that's just the way of it unfortunately. At the end of he day the admin of any site can only do so much with regards to thieving scum but were all adults in here and by now we should know how a sale over the net works. Again it's all down to trust which can only be earned and past history.

Now let me be clear this is just a discussion I'm having here so before anyone starts with the silly comments towards me don't bother lol.

When your talking about a small number of people or companies (for example the current sponsor list is in the teens), its a relatively easy process to conduct.

When its in the 1000's plus that require vetting there is a little more work involved, all well and good having these theoretical ideas but they have to be practical and achievable in the real world.

If the site was to become a full time business, maximise its commercial potential and fleece its members for their cold hard cash then I'm sure it would achieve that theoretical goal.

But its not our ambition to do that, and never will be. So the theory falls apart.

..and to add if someone wants to do that with their own venture/forum/website who am I to stand in their way.

Look just to be clear. I'm not dissing the site in anyway or how yous run it. It's just frustrating seeing such a big site fall that little bit short of it full potential because some adults on here can't use there head properly and when it goes tits up they try to blame other people.

Anyways it's been fun (kinda) but I really hope that one day soon the site can be used to it's full potential without fear of untrustworthy people ruining it.
