Posting stuff for sale on the board

What's with the posting of stuff for sale in the forum. :confused:

Seems like junk mail advertising.:rolleyes:

I didn't personally look at the posts. The titles alone suggested spam, usually placed by spambots (sentient programs designed to post ads for the sole purpose of annoying site administrators and moderators... :p ).

I've seen similar things to this, Goldie. One in particular was quite funny, started the same, but instead the "captain" was a guy looking to import authentic hand crafted items. he got the "Nigerian" to carve a Mac keyboard - life sized. Found errors, so he had the guy carve Garfield the cat, found other errors, and so on. The carvings were actually quite good, very detailed, the "errors" of course, were to string the scam artist along until the hammer could be dropped. Another good one was a guy messing with credit card companies. :D:D
