I recently posted on here about a bike in the for sale section and find that my post has been deleted. There are other posts commenting on the bicycle for sale. My post only said "looks like powder coat. Paint looks very thick". It was removed. Why and by whom? Was it offensive? I made no disparaging comment, just an observation.

I know there are pros and cons to no comments in the for sale section but I think no comments might be for the better. In the last few days I've seen people hi-jack for sale threads by posting their own bikes and asking for parts (should have started their own "wanted" thread). Of course you always get the "cool bike" "wish I had the money" etc... . The other thing that would need to happen is eliminate Tapatalk because these users could post on the for sale section yet coudn't see price or location so you keep getting "How much" which is really annoying.

Did you use inappropriate language? Because I used "l!b3ral" and " f3ini5t" my post, and it was deleted for political reasons, a week or so ago.

Over on the Clarks Classic Fly Rod forum we stopped all replies on the Classified section for the same reason and on balance, it really hasn't affected the volume and quality of the For Sale postings, I have mixed feelings on that from a free speech perspective but I do understand how a seller might take offence, like my mother taught us, if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything.

Last comment...I wasn't trying to be rude...maybe should have posed it as a question to the seller. Believe it or not, I was interested in the bike and can afford it. Nice to see he has a possible sale on it already.

The comment section is just fine the way it is, and removing the post sounds appropriate. Rules of conduct should be observed by all parties in order to preserve enlightening exchanges, useful insights, and banter. However, if a person is a perpetual Debbie Downer, then block and report. I mean, who has time for that?

The reason I disagree with allowing comments is that the Administrators have enough to do on the Cabe without having to read each silly comment about"nice bike".my wife will kill me.Wish I had the money,etc. comments. if you say "nice bike" Buy it ! If your wife will kill you.divorce her.If you dont have the money.Get another job !! Thank you.my rant for the day !

I would not report positive comments, or what I believe to be genuine inquiries. And I don't believe anyone is advocating such actions.
This would be foolish and a waste of the administrator's time. However, negative comments, which may or may not be leveled in the hopes of financial advantage, grudges, or the authors pessimistic world view are never welcome.

And by the way, many people said I have beautiful nuts, as part of a for-sale listing, and it didn't bother me a bit.

If I have a question about the condition or specific details of an item for sale, I submit it through a PERSONAL MESSAGE.
