Unreasonable Lock on My FOR SALE thread

My for sale thread was locked because other people were bumping my thread. The moderator thought these bumps were unnecessary because she thought these posters were not interested in buying my car.

so instead of deleting the said posts, she locked my thread.

i dont think this is fair to me at all.

They're the mods, you are not. They can do what they want.


Deal with it

Don't buy from Dabears2k.com - They sell counterfeit parts.

Re: Unreasonable Lock on My FOR SALE thread

I'm sorry you do not agree with what I did, however I did warn people not to post unless they have a genuine interest in buying. Instead of being mad at me, be mad at the ones who caused your thread to be locked.

Your thread is still there, only locked. You act as though I ran over your dog or something. Might I suggest you try posting on local sites such as Craigs List, Ebay and Auto Trader?

Re: Unreasonable Lock on My FOR SALE thread

There is no reason to be angry at the mods. What people don't understand is that if you break the rules, there are consequences. We are quite fair and give people numerous chances before taking action---to the contrary of what most people think.

Bump

Sound like a bunch of jerks to me. Better lock this one too.

If you are all about following the rules, what are you doing out of the kitchen?

Wow that seems very uncalled for...
There are some times when Mod's do weird things, but usually it's the right thing.

Cleverly disguised as a responsible college student...

Re: Unreasonable Lock on My FOR SALE thread

Looking over the thread, the moderators asked several (THREE) times for people NOT to bump the thread. The requests were continually ignored... so unfortunately the consequence is getting your thread locked.

Re: Unreasonable Lock on My FOR SALE thread

It's a shame people do not listen nor take seriously staff warnings. What happened to this guy's thread is not an exception and it will happen to other FS threads that take the same path - so perhaps users should remember this warning the next time they are asked not to post in a FS thread when they have no intention of purchasing the item. I assure you it will happen again in the same way.

On that note, I feel more than sufficient explanations have been given here, so I'm going to lock this thread.

Josh, I strongly suggest you do not create a duplicate FS thread.

Thanks.
