Wouldn't it be nice to get to know new members on here before they start flogging their wares? :cool:

Or are they just using the site as a sale room? :mad:

Spot on Dave, could be that a registration fee should be introduced for anyone wanting to sell on the for sale forum. :D :D

I honestly don't mind.

Different people want, and get, different things out of the internet.

If someone pops in and another member grabs a bargain, then fine.

I've noticed, however, how regulars do tend to be able to sell a lot quicker i.e. Jeepster's stuff din't seem to hang around.

i do think that if a regular posts an ad, people will know that they're not going to get ripped off.

not many intrepid sellers about ,mostly rods and reels made of compressed soot

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste

I'm with Elton on this one. By having a go at people advertising here we could be doing ourselves out of a bargain!

Let's welcome these people. Then they may well become members, which is in everyone's interest. After all, few of us have got the time to be members of umpteen Forums.

Its Elton's site so it is up to Elton. My feeling, not that it is worth anything, is that one off private sellers are fine. But when commercial concerns come on and take something for nothing, basically take the pee, then I feel that they are out of order. Same goes for people who use their signatures as blatant adverts and then write something controversial just to keep their 'free ad' up and running. Like wot a certain Norfolk angling guide does here there and everywhere!

Yes Steve, spot on.

I was not having a go at sellers as individuals :rolleyes: but when a sellers 4th or 5th post goes like "thanks lads sold half of them and mainly on this site" or words to that effect then I still think Elton should get some kind of cash return for the years and money that he has sunk into AN.

I seem to be in the minority here so had better shut up :D

Since a lot of people seem to have benefited from cheap hooks, it would appear to have been a two way street. Perhaps if the seller is reading this, they might care to put their hand in their pocket and make a small unofficial contribution to AN knowing that they'll be welcome back on future occasions. That way everone's honour is satisfied. Alan would have done that if he'd shifted all of those mackerel feathers. Feathers on a mackerel indeed...what a load of rubbish :D :D :D
