Deleting DEAD Adverts & keeping ads current

Post by VK4SX » Mon Oct 12, 2009 11:33 pm

Shame the guys placing adverts do not take the 3 secs to remove the ad if it has sold, not selling, broken, lost etc, quite deflating to reply to an advert , and NOT even receive a reply, just plain ignorant on the sellers part, Ok , the item has been sold, why not remove it from the listing ?

an International ham like myself, scans the adverts, tries to comply with the sellers wishe's, CONUS ONLY, US ONLY, NO INTERNATIONAL SALES ETC ETC,

locates an advert that falls into a category that appears to suit everyone, , trying all the time not to offend the person placing the advert,

only to NOT receive a reply full stop, or Sorry, SOLD days ago,
then to see the same advert still being cycled 4 days later.
sure must waste some bandwidth, and peoples time.
things are tough all over, not just in USA. we need to rub shoulders, not scatter chopped horse hair.

I totally agree, waste of time.
I run into this every week.
A real pain.
