    I had thought the "no soliciting" was aimed more toward dealers, but I have no problem with the current policy. Sounds good.
    I had got some good deals at an auction and was going to pass them along.
    I'll post them in an appropriate forum.
    I still don't get the whole "argue" comment.
    Just wanting clarification.

    Wirecutter,well said. Let me add, any one who does not want to follow the rules,or wants to argue about them may go.

    This is my opinion and mine only.Your opinion may vary.

    FWIW, I think the way things are run here are just about right. When I've seen eBay listings linked here, it's always been of the "interesting find" or "should I buy this?" category. I'm guilty of this, too.

    What commercial posts I've seen have been flamed and perhaps killed by moderators. And of course, they're against the rules.

    I think the moderators here allow a lot of leeway and don't seem to like censorship. Things get OT from time to time, but things have a way of finding their way home again. I, for one, like this community as it is. Lots of good information and interesting opinions.

    The PM site does have some good topics on occasion. I usually check PM and HSM daily.
    Alot of good info and some smart guys on both sites.

    The PM site isn't bad bill, it is Dthomas's site though and he runs it like he wants it ran.

    He lied, that calls for name calling.
    No,I don't play well with others and I run with scissors.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have said any thing.

    It really wasn't MY place.Now, go get your fiber.

    Name calling?
    Me?

    The following is a post from another board"


    "No Its not, You lying POS.

    The HSM board is better.IMHO.

    Why? becouse the moderator isn't full of himself,and doesnt play at being Godlike.

    Of course, it is MY own opinion,Others have there own Also"
    From non other than IOWOLF

    Have trouble playing with others, do we?

    Bill,
    True but at least we have the camaraderie.(sic?)

    IOWOLF,
    think of it as a term of endearment.
    lol
    Try a little more fiber.

    If you would have read the RULES there wouldn't be a problem. and a smug answer does not require Name calling.

    Another member gave me a down to earth price for the change gears on my South Bend lathe. Theres definetly a feeling of wanting to help other board members on this list. It is unfortunete that it all has to happen behind the scenes.

    No argument from me. That wasn't my intention anyway, I hate you took it that way. Just a smug reply to your previous 2 smug replies.
    I thought there outright posting of items wasn't allowed but wasn't sure.

    Snowman,
    I agree, that's not advertising.But I didn't know how something like that would be looked at.

    Ok, here's a question...

    When Hoffman was tooling up his heat treating furnace, I had some PID temperature controllers that I wanted to get rid of (still have most of em, no time to list em). I told him to contact me off list, gave him one at a pretty damn good price to put temp control on his furnace.

    Is that advertising?

    To me, that's helping someone solve a problem, much different than a post called "PID controllers for sale".
