    Would everyone that has read the Posting Guidelines in the past few days since I had an announcement about this in the announcement at the top, please post here that you have read it. This will keep this up at the top and it will be an easy post to add to your count.

    We have had several advertisements on here today that were not in the Equipment Marketplace. This is the only place you can advertise and the cost is $18 for 6 weeks. This includes if you are looking for something to buy also. This also includes asking what something is worth and saying you are selling it. It's just a sneaky way of saying, "I have a mower for sale". An example is: I am selling my 48" W/B and it is 2 years old with 600 hours on it, what do you think it's worth?

    It will be OK to ask what something is worth in any forum as long as you DO NOT say you are selling it.

    I posted this in an announcement for 2 days asking everyone to read the updated Posting Guidelines, but evidently, several haven't read it or just don't care. I have been removing the posts and then emailing the person about this. It says in the posting guidelines that violations could result in losing your memberships. It would save me a lot of work by just clicking on a spot in the offenders profile that would ban him or her. This is a lot of extra work for me and from now on, I won't have as much time and don't want to just start banning, but it is so easy to do.

    Please take time to read Posting Guidelines and then post here that you did. This should keep this up at the top for a long time. Please make this job as easy as possible for me and the moderators. :)
    Thanks for your time.

    Edited and added on

    I got several emails about clarification on asking the value of things. I made some changes up above on this and all changes are in bold like this is. I did not write that very well and I apologize. I guess I assumed everybody saw the post I had to remove which had a simular post like my example, but very few if any did see it since I removed it shortly after it was posted. I agree there is a need to ask what something is worth as long as you are buying something and this should be just fine.

    I read it, and I care. Now my e-mail box will be overflowing from all the replies to this. Kinda like the "What state are you from" post.....WHAT A NIGHTMARE...still comes back to haunt every now and then. Oh well.

    You know that you can turn that email feature on and off don't you? You can do it in your profile.
