hey matt, thanks for the post ..
it doesn't hurt at all
i guess the rules for the classifieds don't appear when one hits the for sale area
so people don't know they are doing things they shouldn't do ...
the folks who post a classified ad to something they don't own, and they aren't selling &c
its a " i saw on ebay/newspaper classified/craigslist somewhere else" post
with a link off site..
it is a great public service seeing some things like cameras, parts, lenses, bric a brac aren't easily found.
but because they don't know any better it gets posted in the classifieds
if they did own the item, and had it in the apug classifieds for a while and it didn't sell
and posted a link to the auction or craigslist thing, that would be different
