As far as the Harold comments go.. grow up and move on!
I don't need to grow up. I'm 55. think I've done plenty of that. This appears to be the same kinda thing thats happened in the past when #1 was here and trying to run this place as if it was his own. Seems to me that ALL that have posted concerning this agenda, agree with what I said. Let me reiterate, DO NOT let a couple of newbies that come on here and start complaining, to dictate to the mods that things need to change. Reminds me of our leaders in Washington! No prayer or Pledge of Allegiance in school just because of a few idiots! THATS WHAT WE HAVE HERE.

Watch me as I walk this tight rope..... and most likely fall off

I agree with everybody.

I have a problem with the people that run and complain- If you don't like the advice your getting go somewhere else. But I also have a problem with people that post the "You have your boat priced to high and here is why" posts. If you are looking out for them send them a PM but don't post it- It seems extremely rude to me.

Maybe the boat isn't worth that 1k over market in the aggregate or to you but it might be to the buyer if for that extra 1k he can put his eyes on it and not drive 1200mile round trip to get the same boat for a little less.

In short if your trying to help a seller out on value send him a pm and dont ****...err ...boat...ok new term "bock block" him - This policy seems to line up with keeping people from not being rude (imo). And me and my 96 post newbie status are ok with that.

This new rule for classifieds is stupid. A 'fix' for a non problem.

What really needed to change in the classifieds is requiring a location and price.

Any one see the nice black MC that dvsone79 posted in TeamTalk > Classifieds Buy/Sell > For Sale: Boats.

Because of these new rules we cant comment on it!! So MOD, now you need to move it since he saw it and threw it up for comments. Since he is not the seller how does that work?

If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

This NEW rule concerning the classified section and only allowing the OP's to post is a crock of WARM BS! There's 7683 members on this damn forum and 1 or 2 complain about something and then somebody has to go and modify the damn rules to please a few whinners! What the hell is this place coming to? This reminds me of the ACLU! Won't be long now that if you own a special edition prostar with the American Flag on it, you're not gonna be able to post pics of it on here! Thats where this is headed! COMMON SENSE! Where has it gone? JEEZ! I've been telling y'all that Harold's back! This is proof!
I don't know. I still think you have some maturing to do.

I am not a nut that fell from any tree and I am not of Harold's loins.

As far as the changes go, just give me a couple weeks to work it out. The way you guys are talking you'd think I killed your first born.

As an end note, the reason why there have only been 10 or so people who have expressed their displeasure is because the others who take issue with it are being bombarded by being called pussies, wussies and the fault of America. Relax a little and just let it play out.

I've done a lot for this forum and continue to try to do my best to keep everyone happy and everyone included. I am nothing like #1 and never will be. Sorry to upset, but that is a fact.

I wonder how Harold's tomatoes are doing this summer.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

Lets just give the new format a week or so to see how it works. We can't please everyone here and I have always thought that running to the mods with any complaint is ridiculous. If you have a problem with a post deal with it on your own either on open forum or via pm. We don't need to referee a first grade spat between members. I voiced my position on this topic already, but lets leave it be for now.

This seems like an odd move. What's the penalty for not following the rules? Or have they made it so that only the OP can actually post.

I do understand the issue of people not wanting to be ousted by value mongers in open forum. But if you post in open forum that is the consequence you chose.

It may also reveal to the OP through postings of others, missing pieces, improper value, damages, or misleading information. That now will open the classified section to more deceptive advertising. 0.02

I like the idea of the separate section for "what's it worth" discussions as the for sale stuff was getting crowded out by discussion. I don't like that nobody but the OP can post to a For Sale thread. There are legitimate and desirable posts. As a seller, I'd rather have questions out for public view so I don't have to answer the same question multiple times. As a seller I also appreciate comments that are the equivalent of a wolf whistle. If there was a problem with bad posts (e.g., "your boat is priced too high") I'd rather see it addressed with a sticky post addressing proper behavior, PMs from moderators explaining expected behaviors from members, and deletion of individual and offending posts as requested by the OP. I think the new rule about OP posting only hurt rather than help the effort to sell.

I do like the What's It Worth section however. That was needed.
