That's exactly what happened. The thread started out innocent and then when someone offers something for sale or puts out a want or need the thread then it turns into a classified thread in a non sale forum. I didn't delete it, I just removed it. If I get a chance I may clean it up with a warning and see what happens.

And think about this, your above statement is pretty innocent but as soon as someone says "hey I'm looking for a pair of those. How much do you want?" Guess what happens. A innocent thread just turned into a sale thread. We either need to edit, move, or delete it to prevent general discussion threads from turning into a swap shop. We have plenty of forums specifically for selling, buying, and trading. They are separated and in their own forum list so anyone can find them easily.

Thanks Mike, at least I'm willing to own it! Hopefully you can clean it up and get Brett's thread back in view...

Use the private conversation feature if you want to buy/sell based on something you read in a general forum.
