You need to spend some time around here getting to know who is who before you start shooting you CAPS LOCKED MOUTH off. Mike (Rex) doesn't own the site nor makes these decisions. Rex is a moderator and a decent (not GREAT but decent :p) guy that does a LOT to help boaters out. There's a thread in Open Water that goes into a lot more detail on the subject of charging for the Spam section. If you go through that thread, you might have a clue what's going on.

Buy, sell, trade.....

Unless something has changed in the last few hours, the decisions concerning the "spam" sections are still in limbo. No one is trying to screw anyone. There are expenses involved with hosting a site like this one. If the owners want to recover some of those expenses while providing a service to members, it is an option. I would suggest waiting to see what happens. (yelling at Rexone, Mike) does nothing to preserve what we enjoy now. I do, however, agree that any decision needs to be well thought out, as I'm sure it will be. As I've said before, WE are the forums, Performance Boat Magazine "Hosts" the web site, but it is us, the members here that make it what it is. I mentioned on the other thread that I felt a yearly "fee" allowing unlimited, (within reason), posting of items for sale would be fair. The amount is yet to be determined, but someone mentioned $50. yearly, or including the service with the Magazine subscriptions plus a small additional fee. I DO list items for sale, and I DO buy other member's items for sale. I DO bitch and moan when members don't show where the items are located, or fail to include a price. I also complain when members "link" e bay ads that put members in a position of having to "bid" against the general public. IMO, that is not a situation of "Boaters helping Boaters", but an obvious effort to squeeze every dime out of their parts/boats/cars/trucks/etc etc. that are not selling on e bay alone...Would I like the spam section to remain "as is"? Sure, but I also realize the owner's concern with the companies that PAY to advertise their parts/boats and services here on the site. Is there a "happy medium"?... I hope so, but if the owner's decision is what I consider "fair", I'll continue trying to move parts and pieces that others need at a reasonable price.......As with everything else in life, there are people that abuse the system and ruin it for everyone. I sincerely hope I don't fall into that category............Ray

parts help

where are we to go to if we want to save $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ on our parts?????
i would rather support a fellow performance boater than some stranger on aka e-bay ect. there have been some really great people selling items and also some great info on the parts they sell. let the person who wants to sell a couple items a month or yr do it for free. for the person who is like a dealer or post to many item for sale will have to pay to put adds of item for sale in the classified section. save the spam for the once in while person and not punish all of us if we only sale on or two items a year no matter the price

So, where do they draw the line? One or two items can escalate into 3 or 4, or 10 or 12....As I said, abuse is the downfall, and everyone suffers for the actions of a few. Please wait and see what the owners come up with. I have a feeling it will be quite fair to all........Ray

PS And no, I don't have any inside information as to what it is going to be...

There is a thread in open water on spam subject this does not belong in vdrives forums nor will there be vote. King c is weighing final decision - its not decided. Post there is you feel need to discuss. Rexone is moderator on our forums and helps us administer does not make these decisons so you're off base with attack there.
