Very good solution!! To me it's a no brainer to close the ad when there is no activity. People reply to those old inactive threads after they use the for sale search function here. The buyer could just as well take the SAME exact amount of effort to hit the PM button rather than the reply button. Right now the reply clutters the use of FABO for all others when 98% of the time the part is not still for sale or the seller is long gone. True. But those new people come to see fresh ads. Not stale, unsold, regurgitated, and dusty ads from 4-6 months ago. So I like the idea closing the for sale ad altogether after a certain period of time. 30 days from the start. Whether you are a gold member or not. Whether you bump it or not.
