If the buyers are more aware then the "blacksheep" sellers have lesser chance of taking advantage. Yes, CS members should be warned and adviced to do their homework, instead of warned against any individual. This is more effective than blacklisting, and it still protects the climate in CS Buy & Sell section.Originally posted by song
I don't quite agree with the fact that fellow clubsnapper should not be warned. If that person change name, then it is luck. But then , we need to at least do our best to protect the climate of clubsnap buy sell section; if not the section would lose its followers and then it would be ineffective.
This is going to affect all of us here. Imagine if we have something to sell in clubsnap forum and then because of these blacksheeps, the forum loses its reputation, how are we to find buyers easily.
I believe the Buy & Sell section is provided as a convenience for members but CS is not responsible for the transactions.
I feel you are stretching this a little too far. The concept of classifieds and autions are not new to the Internet, so is the advice to buyers doing their own research and making informed and careful decisions. Any foreign browser with common sense will know better than to base his judgement of Singaporeans on a few incidents of unhappy transactions that he happen to come across on CS.Originally posted by song
Worst, this is a singapore based forum and imagine the harm done to our image as singaporeans.
just my thought, i know some would not agree.
As far as this case here is concerned, I believe we have not heard from the selling party yet. So let's not make any judgement yet.
I seldom make disclaimers in my posts, but in this case I feel I have to make it clear. I am a volunteer as a moderator for CS. My views in this thread so far has been my personal views, and not representative of the CS administration.
