Why did they ban him?

IMO, he's not annoying to me. Motivated, perhaps, but not annoying.

I hear you. I've gone back and forth with that thinking myself.
I thought it was just odd at first, the way he posted things looking for specific trades with no shipping and no trades for similar stuff. Whatever, no big deal to me right?

But then I commented on one of his sale threads for some 9 inch Style5 replicas, and got the crappiest attitude in response. And watched him continue that attitude towards multiple other people in that that thread. He then started reporting people who commented on his threads and demanding that his threads be cleaned up. Some of us were trolling, like always, but some were offering advice such as "much more likely to sell if you'd ship" or "I'm genuinely interested, will you ship?" or "just FYI those are replicas and they aren't Style5 wheels" but he just continued with his crappy responses.

Eventually I suggested that he consolidate all his threads into one thread, so that he might stop annoying everyone. I gave him examples via PM, and even PMed him a link to how philski o'flood does: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=332933 I suggested that he put all his wheels into a thread like that, and bump it once a week or so, and just edit the first post whenever he adds new wheels or sells some.

The dude responded with a nasty PM, but he did actually start a new thread for his wheels... but kept all the old threads too!! Now he bumps all of them. Fack.

Bottom line, I'm over it and threw the dude on my ignore list. But that doesn't really block his ads from still showing up, so I started this thread asking about it. Turns out there's no way, but it also turns out that there are several other people annoyed with the guy.

Here's the thing. As I see it/imo/etc. etc. /disclaimer

By allowing him to continue business as usual, a freeloader is being given license to piss over the heads of members of long-standing reputation and meaningful forum contribution who actually have goods of interest to offer.

Continually.

?

Take it to a vote and I'll be the first to walk the plank if that's how the crew wants this ship to be run and I'm the arsehoolio for saying otherwise.

Local pickup only my ass.

Either do proper business else GTFO.

I got no sandy vag either way, but. It' the selling members in good standing who lose... Just the facts as I see 'em.

Again, not to mention that the entire forsale section becomes just his.

BTW guys, setting up alternate screen names...those will just get banned. I already know who did it, they have posted in this thread, they have been banned before, several times for harassing a member. If the same thing happens from that person again, the alternate name will get a permaban just as this one will, and the current name will also get a longer than usual vacation.

Your frustrations are heard, however we have to act like the parents around here, since you guys are acting like children. Let him play in the sandbox while you use the rest of the playground, or use the ignore function. You have the tools to ignore him and the ability to NOT read his threads by choice, but you'd rather bitch and complain.

I don't post or browse for sale or wanted very much, but I think the mods are handling this very poorly. It doesn't make sense to piss off a bunch of longtime contributing members so some unstable spam bot can peddle his useless crap.

If the guy refuses to follow the for sale rules he should be banned for a period of time and if he doesn't learn, he should be banned again. After that, each violation of the forum rules should result in a longer ban each time. He will continue to break the rules until the mods show that they have some teeth, and the rules aren't just guidelines.

You're not aware of what's being done behind the scenes Lando.

It is easy to backseat moderate, but believe me, this is not falling on deaf ears.

The person you're talking about has been following the same rules as the rest of you in terms of bumping. Yes, he does have several threads, many of us do, many of us need to compile them into a single thread. If every single person that had more than 1 f/s thread was banned, you would see 80% of the members active in f/s banned. Hell, even Ken would be banned.

Aside from that rule, he has been obeying the rest, moreso than many who have posted in here...

Except Ken doesn't bump all of them every day, and Ken is offering items that are useful to the forum and is a longtime important asset to the Volvo community here.

And that isn't me bitching or whining like a child.
I'm participating in an active discussion.

Its kind of an unwritten rule that you be a doner when you sell on here. Why does everyone abide by this except for (this guy)a few?

Personally, I wouldn't accept his payment.
It would just give him more entitlement

Neither is he who we are speaking of. It's usually once every 3 to 5 days or so.

I think you might be right, but in Market alone he currently has 6 active threads and bumps at least 2 of them every day (plus has several active threads in For Sale), so he is always at the top of the Market and for Sale threads each day. What is stopping him from having 20-30 active threads and he only bumps half of them each day?

I think the bigger point here is that what he is selling are items (cars or wheels mostly) that could easily be combined into one or two threads rather than 6-12 that are bumped on a rotation. And, since that is a forum rule it seems odd that, given the number of active threads that he regularly bumps, and since he won't volunteer to combine his threads, that he isn't being required to.

There might also be another point about someone using forums to run a business that may not be done in a legal manner. I can't speak specifically to what he may, or may not be doing because there isn't much information about him, or his background, or his profession, but I do know that where I live someone needs a dealers license to do what he appears to be doing. And, that there are reasons for that.
