Re: ATTN: LEVE - Sticky Buy/Sell Post ????
I have two problems with that. First, I have a GM TPI engine in my Jeep so I visit the thirdgen.org board, in particular the DIY ECM section, from time to time. The first two thirds of the first page are sticky posts that the moderator thought were important. Just demonstrating the sticky posts could easily get out of hand.
Second, I made deals with two people on this board to buy. One with NavyJP for a set of fiberglass doors, he has 114 posts and registered on 09/19/00 and another with indycj for a T-176 and he offered to send me free a D-300 shift lever, he only has 17 and registered on 07/30/02. In both cases I agreed to pay their asking price, all they had to do was get the shipping charges. Neither one of them ever responded with the shipping after making the original deal. I wouldn't regard either one as real regulars but still 117 in two years for one and I seem to remember indycj claimed in some posts that he was registered under different names over a long period of time due to ISP changes.
So what would be your minimum criteria? 500 posts and two years membership?
I kind of figure if they are worthwhile parts at a decent price by a legitimate member, they will bubble their way back to the top. Even the others do from people telling them they aren't allowed to sell here.
