[27-SEP-2015] Please be respectful of sellers in the Want to Sell section

30-AUG-2016 Update: Please follow this simple rule: Do not comment on “Want to Sell” items if you are not interested in buying it. Also please read about the BLF crackdown on rudeness. Please keep in mind that BLF Rule #1 is strictly enforced.

—————————

Hi guys,

I’ve had a few reports recently of people making rude comments about some lights that our users (not commercial sellers) are selling in the Want to Sell section.

Simply put: Please don’t be rude anywhere on this forum, and that includes non-commercial sales threads.

If you see a product on eBay that is overpriced or uninteresting in your opinion, you simply skip it and move on. In a similar manner, if you think somebody’s price is too high in a sales thread, you can either try to politely bargain if the owner is willing, or else close the thread and move on. Likewise, if you don’t like the product or find it uninteresting, please locate your browser’s close button or go here for something else.

As always, the majority of our members here try to be polite, respectful, and friendly, but a small minority needs to make a concerted effort to contribute to the friendly, lighthearted place that BLF is meant to be.

Thanks for reading. Have fun!

Nope, I mainly added (not commercial sellers) in parenthesis to emphasize that people selling in the Want to Sell section aren’t companies, but rather members who use and enjoy BLF as part of their hobby.

I do wonder if there is ethics regarding profit. How much % profit is ethical and how much is not. Would you say nothing if a person sells a sipik sk68 here at 100$ then some newcomer buys it because its the first 

Post he saw? Though its bad to badmouth high prized items, i still think overpriced items here in the forum should be monitored to avoid ripoffs from poor first time buyers

Just don’t be rude about it. Be more like me, I’m always polite. Silly

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

We need the police price Big Smile

Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.
I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.

He doesn’t say anything about not informing the ignorant just avoid being rude to others regardless of the topic.

Wiggle your tail feathers and quack once in awhile. You already wade around in the water. Flying might be contraindicated.
