I'd rather sell my goods on a forum with people who appreciate them than on Ebay, and I'm sure many people hold the same view.Just consider it.

We are not responsible at AI, of the honesty of the transactions. Imagine that A is screwed by B. A ask AI to ban B, or write a post saying that B sucks. B say that he is honest, and A screwed him ...and so on. We don't want this kind of troubles. Thanks for your understanding.

It would encourage people to use it.Use general discussion. As long as its a known user, it doesn´t smell fishy and we don´t get into trouble we won´t close threads like that in there.
