How about Classifieds?

Just curious. Don't know the legal issues.

I just don't like eBay. Call me wierd....

There would be no legal problems so long as AI posted that everything is the users own risk, and that they don't support / endorse / warrent the products. It would pretty much just be people who knew each other trusting each other. But no llegal issues.

We've discussed this before and all it takes is one person getting burned one time for there to be a big problem.

I think if you want to sell something to another board member, it's fine, but do it via email or PMs and not involve AI in any other way. I think a forum for such sales is overkill.

I agree. On the surface, it seems like a cool idea (I actually brought it up a year or two ago), but I could see it degenerate into a big, out-of-control thing.

Ideally, everyone here would be cool/mature enough to post something (either looking to sell or buy) and only legit, interested parties would respond and they could work out the details.

But too many troublemakers, pot-stirrers and riff-raff here at AI, and they'd just mess it up.

We've all got each other's e-mail or PM info.

If a member is looking to buy or sell something, maybe he can post a quick note in General Discussion or somewhere, then the interested parties can communicate privately via e-mail or whatever.

Probably the safest, most low-key and hassle-free way to do it.
