Prevention of scammers in the buy/sell/trade forum

Postby Xoom » Wed Feb 09, 2005 4:37 pm

I was wondering if anyone had come up with any good ideas to prevent scammers from our buy/sell/trade forum? I was thinking that we could impose a minimum post count to buy/sell/trade in the forum?

Umm, the best prevention is the grey matter between your ears.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Buyer Beware.

Umm, yeah. To me, it was very clear it was sizzlin'. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot clown pole.

Actually on second thought I think you have a good idea.

No one should be allowed to post in any forum until they have at least 915 posts.

Actually, 99.9% of us here would detect and pass on them... But being you are the .1% you'll have to take your chances! :rolleyes:

Yeah. The friggin' thing is only 2GB. Plus, you can't store anything on it, as it has "PONG" taking up the whole space and you can't get it off.

Not that I bought one. A friend of mine did. Yeah, that's the ticket!
