he tried the same with me. cut and paste responses that have nothing to do with the sale.

why doesn't KA9FOX boot this guy? he has tons of test junk for sale in the classifieds and is obviously doing a disservice to those that use AND SUPPORT QTH.com.

what I don't understand is WHY did my ad disappear after this idiot got involved?

Carl, perhaps you don't understand how scammers operate. They pretend to be real hams. WA1BRI is not a scammer, so there is no reason for us to prevent him from posting ads on our site. Please see http://tips.qth.com/ so you can learn more about scams and how protect yourself.
