    I knew I should have looked harder. No problems, thanks for that.
    Why is it that when you are looking for something you cant find it.

    yes they should. Carefully monitored of cource.

    I attempted to sell an item recently.
    I was pm'd an offer, I accepted the offer and agreed to pay frieght. So I sent him my bank details. Ive sent a number of pm's asking for an adress so I could post the item as soon as I recieved payment. Never heard from him again. A little dissapointing.
    If you make a firm and serious offer you follow through.
    its not the speed that hurts......Its the sudden stop......

    ^^And if you cant, you should have a good reason, which you tell the person you were about to buy off.

    Naming and shaming maybe good in theory, however in a court of law if it comes to it, can lead to people beig sued.

    Just ban them after x amount of times, end of story, and note that we will comply with all law enforcement agencies in case it gets to that level. We currently log everything.

    Trader rating system would be better.

    If your talking defomation. You have to be able to prove 2 things.
    1. The things said were fulse or untrue.
    2. That the statements made lead directly to financial loss or caused harm.

    So if we just keep the coments to FACT. Liability isn't an issue.

    If we were to have a trader rating system that gets abused, how will that be rectified?
    It is all one against another.

    It's easy to prove acceptance of terms. It's easy to prove payment. It's easy to prove delivery on the lack of. I don't see the problem with naming and shaming.
    It's a whole lot easier than dropping in on them and slapping them.
    Probably more productive too.
