But you are the moderator so what you say goes wiether I agree with it or not. I do have a question though.
Has it ever been discussed to add a rating system to each profile or maybe a minimum number of posts required before being able to post in the classifieds?
I can only quote a rule word for word since it's written that way but I can also tell you the intent and reasoning for the rule. Len and I have recently talked about the wording in this rule but he's been busy since hunting season and hasn't had time to look at it.
You don't have to agree with anything I say and I'm fine with that but you are currently only referencing one thread/individual and yet I have to remember to take into consideration all of the members, all of the threads/posts and all of the possibilities. We can't allow one thread to run amuck and then make another one stick to the rules of the site.
Len and I have discussed ratings etc. and currently I doubt that you will see it happen. Although there are many positives associated with it, there are also too many possibilities for false negatives that could cause someone a lot of unnecessary grief. I'm not saying it will never happen, I just don't think you'll see it now.
