Delete the post then. My bad. I just started the profile like two days ago and didn't know you all were so damn sensitive about it. My god I thought jeep people claimed to be friendly and cool to other jeep people.

We don't delete posts,That's also in the rules. Since you started your profile 2 days ago, and agreed to the rules, I would think they would be fresh in your mind. Guess not.

I guess we're the bad guys as usual and not 'friendly and cool' since we didn't meet your expectations. After all, it's our fault you broke the rules. Sorry, I'm just a little sensitive right now.

I will say with it seeming like more and more of these things popping up on here that I'll agree with the OP pshhh who really reads all the rules and service agreements to shit when they sign up for things. Anyone know what the I tunes agreement says? Shit that thing could say they can come to my house and steal my kidney at any time I wouldn't know haha.

But with that said I do respect Eddie for his decision to run the site the way he wants he does pay for it and we use for free so if he doesn't want new ppl on here just to buy and sell stuff that's his prerogative and I'll run with it because I like this site. Some things seem to get escalated quite quickly though guess you can't win them all.
Hopefully the OP will stick around hang out and see all the good info on this site but doesn't seem like that happens often.

I hear you on rules. I didn't read them either and I should've.

The difference is that some guys accidentally break them, get called on it, apologize, and stick around and contribute. Other guys break them, get called on it, then go crazy and accuse us of being mean and not true to the Jeep brotherhood, etc.

It's less about if you accidentally broke the rules or not and more about how you respond when confronted with that fact. This is true in most of life.

I agree most don't read the rules. I am guilty of that too. First nice looking Jeep, but yeah selling or buying on here is for active members. The forum here is about building a community instead of Craigslist for Jeep. Stick around, you might end up keeping your Jeep and doing other stuff too it.

Let me put it this way. Eddie has made this website not only his home but his business as well. The classifieds are for people who are trusted and active here. Let me put it this way.

Say you opened up a business specializing in antiques . On weekends, you allowed your friends and family, and people you know who enjoy antiques set up stuff to sell, buy, and trade. Kind of like a glorified garage sale. Well here comes this random guy driving by. He sees what's going on and goes "geeze I would like to make a quick buck". The next week he stops in your business and browses a couple of things and walks out. You've seen him but don't know who he is. Well that weekend when you have your friends and family set up, he shows up to sell stuff even though he hasn't earned that right. You go up to him and tell him that he can't sell here because it's reserved for friends and family and people he knows, and he gets mad and thinks that you're some horrible person for having defined and reasonable rules.

That's what happens with all these for sale threads that turn sour.

That makes total sense. I too am guilty of signing up and not reading the rules. I have gone back now am read them.

I too am guilty of not reading rules all the time, however, I think that joining a forum for selling something or soliciting a selfish agenda is very rude and should be basic common sense not to do stuff like that. Just my opinion.

It's an apt analogy. You also need to include how the dude usually complains how garage sale people usually are nice, wave at each other, etc (thereby implying we are not true garage salers).

For the record: I love me a good garage sale. Especially if there are Jeep parts.

I love garage sale too. I've found some killer deals at them. There's actually a place down the road from Troncalli that hosts massive garage sales on the weekends for people to set up and sell stuff. It's actually where I got my idea for the analogy :cheesy:

:shock: Wow, that's a really great analogy - thanks! :crazyeyes:

Regarding "rules", I'd just like to point out that the title of the forum specifically states "FOR ACTIVE MEMBERS ONLY". I don't know why that's so hard for people to see or why they feel it doesn't apply to them but I also state the following in the forum description.

"Got some old parts you'd like to turn into some cash? Well, this is the place to post them up. Buy and sell your items at your own risk. Please, do not post firearms or related parts for sale. If you are not an active member here on WAYALIFE, you will NOT be welcome to post here. NO vendors or businesses allowed."

Of course, once you're on the forum, there is a notice entitled, "READ BEFORE YOU POST - For Sale Forum Rules (http://wayalife.com/showthread.php?21825-READ-BEFORE-YOU-POST-For-Sale-Forum-Rules)".

My point to all this is that I've tried really hard to make it absolutely clear that unless you are an active member here, you are not welcome to use the for sale forums. And before people start giving me suggestions as to how I could change things to prevent problems like this, may I please remind you that I've been doing forums for over 20 years now and I have literally tried everything. People who are determined to sell things will always to post away. If anything, the self-policing that the members here do has been the single best solution I've seen to date.

Agreed, sounds awesome. There aren't too many garage sales here, and I've never seen Jeeps parts at one. Hell, we don't even have a real flea market here anymore. It got shut down last month.

I agree with that. You'll rarely see me in one of these threads, until it gets bad enough it needs moving out of the general forum, to the Infirmary.
