I'd think that calling people out over it and making a thread just to bash them is more.. un-community-ish, then forgetting to post an intro

Didn't anybody read the entire thread? We've resolved it, so let it die

I think your avatar says it all! LOL

If it's been resolved I might put that in the thread title so that people don't keep replying... I read most of the thread, but apparently missed the "resolution".

Re: Am I the only one that is fed up w/ newbie sellers posting in FSOT asap?

the only time i mind is when they're selling big items. an iphone for 300ppd, 10 goodmamas as a lot only, etc. or if they only accept money orders. those throw up red flags to me and usually there's a t and f thread about it a day or so later.

I dont' care it they post an intro but I do care that they chat.....I like to see that they don't come on, sell a few things and disappear.....I mean I don't care if they do that but I know they won't be getting any of my money but if they chat and have a few dozen posts and maybe have bought or traded a couple times I'll consider dealing with them.

I wrote
"personally I never even considered this was a "community" rather than a buy/sell/trade place. I too now go into the other discussion areas, but I don't think newbies are doing it on purpose. that's just my opinion!"

I didn't know is what I meant. Like a pp said, I came on at the recommendation to buy diaps here so that's what I thought it was. (yeah, "backout" and "bolt" from me on that statement alone! Nice.)

ETA: I have been on nearly a year and have over 200 posts, 100% feedback (granted, only 30 ratings) but anyone can see I post elsewhere as well! I spend most of my time on a local mommy support network, I understand the use for sure! I've met some awesome moms on here and think for the most part we can all be trusted, even if we were misinformed on what this site is about!

I use the new post button and have since the day I registered. Much easier to navigate that way!

The abbreviations and terminology are slightly intimidating to a new user who is shopping for a deal on diapers. I did make an intro post but I had to dig deep to find out where.
