    Seems more and more for sale adds are nothing more then links to eBay adds

    I might be the only one bothered by it, but I wonder if it isn't something we should put an end too?

    Ebay & Craigslist both offer direct contact communication with the seller, so both venues have worked well for me.

    i dont mind buying from ebay, or craigslist, or whatever
    but it seems sneaky to me to have and add here, which just links through to somewhere else

    seems like spam to me

    There are merits to linking to an ebay auction here, so I dont mind it. BUT --- you should still post some info, photos here as well as the link. Not just a post with an ebay link. That's what the rules say
