Do people constantly advertise stuff in this section?

RThey come to a forum thinking "Hmm, I have a bike to sell, where should I place my ad". Then they chose this section.

I don't get it.

1. Search for something, sayyyy "bed for sale"
2. don't go into any post but click "start new thread in this section" link at bottom of search results.
3. press post
4. goto about this forum section.

Why people follow this workflow I'll never know, but follow it they clearly do.

orrrrrr ta least it did when I started writing this post.
Now it just throws a permission error, Im guessing admin is on the case

and now it does the right thing, well done otta and admin

If you're new to the forum, maybe people are not sure and accidents do happen.

Accidents happen

But more often its people just not caring or giving a shit

If not enough people give a shit, the who,e place becomes unreadable and a mess. Have a look at the message board on lordship if you want to see the end result

You for example cfccfc2 have taken time out of your oh so busy life to say here here to someone else. This gives you little scope to claim any moral high ground

To address minders point. People have been "new to the forum" for years. But without this incessant and increasing litter. People are well within their rights to say its out of order just as they are when a tidy town becomes covered in crisp packets and other litter from newcomers

I was killing time at work, but its something that I've genuibely wondered about, as I thought people were actively selecting this section rather than classifieds to swll stuff, and it struck me as pretty dumb, new or not.

As for having a life, I have two small kids, so I don't get out much.
