Isn't that what the "Good trader-Bad Trader" forum is about?Tig

Maybe I don't know better, but doesn't the "Good trader-Bad Trader" forum already do this? Perhaps it could use a different name related to eBay type purchasing and problems.
People seem to think that Ebay is too important for that...TJeanloz

I have no idea why, but people seem to believe that revealing scams on E-Bay is of critical importance to the entire cycling community, and thus must be shown to as many people as possible.

I think the GT/BT forum is the appropriate place for these things.
Yes, should go to "Good/Bad Trader" forum.gregg

Like you guys said, that's what it's for.

Hate to be all wishy washy here, but at the same time, I understand people's reasons for posting the scam alerts here (namely higher visibility).

Ultimately, it comes down to you guys (the RBR regulars). If it bothers you, I'll move them, and ask Doug to do the same. If most people don't mind/care, we'll let it slide.

Does this include all the "look at this stupid ad" posts, or only the fraud/scam posts? Any consensus?

I vote for fraud/scam posts only...nmDave Hickey

Lets' face it, if everything was posted in the proper forum, what would we talk about in the general forum? Look at today's postings, almost everyone should be posted in the other forums...

I posted a topic today and I had a specific reason for posting it on the general board.

"Would you buy a new retro grouppo?"- I already knew the answer I'd get from most of the people that post on the retro forum. I wanted to know the the general board felt.

I get tired of the all the ebay scam posting too but I also get tired of the poser, what bike should I buy, and other repetitive posts

Just my 2cents...............
Make sure to move the ride reports too!spookyload

There is a whole gallerie for rides there. Since we are against posting in the wrong spot, make sure to put those where they belong too.
