Whilst I'm very much for the lower end of regulation, the problem is that you're looking at this from the point of view of a rational and constructive poster. Unfortunately, forums that don't put such controls in place tend to get spammed with unwanted shilling posts, because there are sadly a lot of "non-constructive" people out there.Wow!!!
I have never seen so much squabbling and back biting in my life !
I am new to the forum and enjoy reading and learning from the many interesting contributions from the talented and experienced members.
I don’t have a lot to say as I am hear to learn but the “ you have to post x amount of comments “ seems a little strange to me.
it appears to me that if I would like a chance to buy or sell on the forum then unless I have a constructive comment to make ( and as a newbie who is here to learn I don’t ) I should just bombard the forum with meaningless comments to get my post count up to the required level.
I understand the forum wants to protect its members but I assume the vast majority of them are adults whom can be held responsible for their own decisions on whether they feel a purchase/transaction is above board and safe.
BTW: welcome to the forum!
