Why are sellers allowed to advertise items here?

I consider it as spam. It is shown as a sales gimmick and nothing else and you know it.

    I am not sure why you consider it spam.

    GunBroker is an online auction for firearms. It just so happens to also have a forum side as well.

    IMHO for a seller to say they have just listed something is not a big deal. These forums are made possible by the income generated by the auction side.

    I just scored a really nice Firearm for my collection, in exactly this manner. (And) I appreciated the link. Just sayin'.

    I appreciate the heads up on items I would probably miss seeing otherwise. [:D]

    Personally, I enjoy seeing what items folks here have for sale. If it bothers anyone, it seems pretty simple for them to not click on the post.

    Spam? Are you cereal?
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    If you mean to plug an auction of theirs? If that's what you mean sit down and think about it for a minute,

    1. GunBroker - a commercial for profit website whose primary focus the brokerage of firearms and related stuff.

    2. Allowing or even encouraging members here who also post items for bid - sale on the auction side to post links to active auctions is good business.

    3. If you consider allowable content posted here to be for profit spam and objectionable please block the site and leave. Don't let the door hit you in the * on the way out.

    4. I consider your post to be whining self delusional spam. It clearly violates the posting guidelines. I want your posts removed and your account closed.

    5. We collectively are taking the conch she'll back from you. You turn to speak has passed piggie.

    6. Why do you think that you can tell the rest of us what to do or how to post based on your singular opinion?

    Sigh.
