come to think of it,

those who are very "hard working" on their threads, may not even bother go outside Marketplace, so may not notice about this thread.

one way to get their attention is to "spam" some warnings and infractions ....... kekeekek

They are kunchiong to sell their stuff. A small group of sellers are competing to get maximum exposure of their sale items.
Hence the repeats and ups to have the slot. Too pro to be casual sellers.

It's getting very frequent of successive multiple posts in B&S subforum. Can run up to 8 entries in straight rows!
Suggest Mods just delete all posts if >2 posts of same item for sale occurred.

Report Post function is absolutely confidential .... the identity of the person reporting the post cannot be seen by fellow CS'ers

Sometimes I see suspicious WTS ads that look too good to be true, smells like a potential scam, and invariably by new members. But since got no proof, what to do? Should report these? Technically they have not flouted any rule that I can think of.

The rules of using this forum are in the FAQ
and some of the rules on personal classified section are written in the page where a member want to post a new thread.

to recap, personal classified sections are for members selling/buying photographic items on a personal basis, non photographic item are not allowed. eg Tickets, Groupon Deals, mobile phone, computers etc are not classified as photographic items.


and you can report any suspicious posts, we will investigative the issue and take approbate actions if needed.
