im scared to post

Other than talking with a member though PM to arrange a sale I get flagged or warned for every other action I do on the forums.

I'll probably be flagged again for this.

Are you breaking rules?
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

There are thousands of posts in the marketplace.
The mods have to take action on ~5 per day, based on my non scientific methods of aggregation called "counting".
The other dozens of posts every day are fine.

The only complaints we get are from the people who don't follow the rules and think we're nazis.
Which group are you in?

Dozens of posts are successfully made here every day by various members without a problem.  If your actions are getting flagged  "all the time", then you're the problem, not the forum/mods.  I'd start at looking at what at what actions causes you grief, learn your lesson, and move forward.

It will just get me another infraction.


I understand the rules. It's my mistake when I listed my interior for sale for assuming people on a subaru forum would know what it looks like.

I post mostly from work, from my phone.

I'm not trying to start anything it was a jesting thread. Ha ha I'm scared to post.

So you understand the rules, but decided they didn't apply to you? Nobody gets to be a special princess here, well, maybe snackers.

No.  You don't get to be a petulant, sarcastic jerk about this.  You don't get to deflect by attempting to put other people down.

Do you understand that when you're selling used parts on the Internet people might want pictures of the item to see what state it's in?  Sun-faded, cracked, armor all'd, sticker bombed, scratched, etc?  Curbed vs. refinished vs. painted vs. new in box vs. "used for 5 years and put back in the original box"?

Yes, we also want pics to show that it's actually in your possession and readily available for sale, but the above is a large, LARGE reason of the requirement for pictures.

I don't think he's a jerk, seems like a pretty nice guy to me. I think some of the guys on here are a bit rough on the new members.

Yes some of us are a bit rough but it gets real annoying when it's posted everywhere. Sticky that says read me, or rules. They even have a template set up. Fairly straight forward, and well within reason.

You don't see the PMs the mods receive from these "new" members who have had an account for long enough to be well aware of the rules.

Maybe the PM's to the mods should get posted so that everyone can see how "nice" these people are? Probably not, but it might curb some BS you guys(and gal) have to deal with. I'm down with public ridicule as a deterrent.

Naw, they usually do a good enough job of making themselves look silly.

This thought is in my head every time I am in an airport, on a bus, on this forum or generally anywhere in public.  I have come to the conclusion I just generally do not like the majority of the human race.
