Angry Corporate Sales in the Classifieds

Part of my daily routine is my morning visit to the forum and classifieds.. And something that really bugs me is when looking through the classifieds I see people positing items from some sort of store front and say taxes will be collected.

Now I use the classifieds to buy and sell, and have donated to cause by sending in money to offset the costs of running this system.. Many of you have also bemome yearly members as part of your sponsorship.

Maybe its just my opinion, but like most of us here, we buy and sell items here to feed/help pay for our 'addictions' to our macs, but it is done as individuals, not as a business.

My proposal is to either ban corporate sales, or setup a section specificly for corporate sales, or make it manditory for corp clients to pay some sort of advertising fee or require a membership..

Any opinions??

( hopefully spelling and grammer were correct.. I haven't had my morning coffee yet and am working on a Windows Machine.. ha! )

I don't think corporate sales belong in the classifieds, however I would be open to them posting deals in a seprate section if they pay for some sort of partner fee to the site.

Like r2traps, I wouldn't mind corporate classifieds if they paid a sponsorship fee and had their own sub category apart from the private classifieds.

There probably should be some way to indicate which are corporate sales and which are private sales. As for whether corporate sellers should pay a fee, well that's for EhMax to worry about as he runs the site, I don't.
