    This is exactly why I rarely use this site anymore. You guys care more about your income from people on the BST than you do about users having an enjoyable time using your site. Letting users get blatantly ripped off on certain items like the Club Cameron bag/headcover and protecting the malicious sellers who are doing so is a bad business practice. I will continue to refrain from supporting this site any longer for this very reason.



    I was awarded a point for simply stating that I enjoyed owning the Club Cameron kit that I also purchased and I posted a link to where I bought it. I didn't make any comments about the seller's price. If this had been some putter that was for sale for $100 and I posted a link to where you could buy it new for $200 nobody would have said a word. It's common. It was only because the link to the new product revealed that you could actually buy it new for cheaper that GolfWRX suddenly had a problem with it.




    You don't value time enough. I browse the classifieds over coffee. I saw a cool cover (it was a Mardi Gras cover). I bought it. I paid a bit more than new actually. But it was right here and took 30 seconds.



    If you can point me to a place where I can find tons of cool gear all in one spot AND the guaranteed best prices we should all head over there. Comparison shopping the entire internet to get a novelty cover $8 cheaper is ridiculous. The BST is cool because its a bunch of random stuff that's neat to us golf-obsessed wierdos *all in one place*. If you're here to try to maximize your dollar you're doing it wrong.



    IMO of course.




    Exactly. I place a lot of value in the ease of purchase, the friendliness of everyone I deal with, and the relative "cool factor" of some really neat equipment I see here that I rarely see anywhere else.

    I too fall into this category. A little too much in fact. But that’s the value and curse of the BST for me...time and money invested not always on what I actually need to buy. But I enjoy it. And pass on a good deal to great people too after I’ve tried something and it didn’t work out.

    14 Day suspension is too high a price. Really, you should only be asking for a 7-day. Lower your price, Sheriff, and I might be buying what you're selling.



    Edit: please don't suspend me, this was meant to be tongue-in-cheek and add some levity to this discussion.

    I have sold multiple items on this site without incident. I really appreciate the ability to list things for little or no cost and appreciate the forum allowing me and others to do so. Do I make a profit? Never. Do I mitigate my losses for dumb purchases? Yes. Do I prefer selling here to other sites? Absolutely. Are the rules for selling here clear and fair? Yes. Let's not make it more complicated than it has to be.

    Didn’t your mother’s ever tell you to “keep your comments to yourself?”

    Don’t make comments in the BST. Simple. Also, keep your “is this bag of tees legit or fake” out of the Deal or No Deal.

    I actually almost bought one of those Club Cameron bags from someone for $100 until I realized that the entire package including 1 year membership in Club Cameron, a SC headcover, the SC bag and also some other trinkets like a ball marker were all selling for $100+ shipping. Thankfully I noticed it when trying to see how much the bag was actually worth, otherwise I would have felt like I got ripped off. I guess I must be the only one.

    You play a sport where people routinely shell out $200 greens fees for four hours of fun on a Saturday afternoon. Why would you do that when a movie ticket is only $7? What a bunch of chumps!



    You're (one of) the only ones who has not getting ripped off high on his list of golf priorities. I could care less about $20 here and there, I just want to have fun and get cool stuff. If I was shopping for something like new phones for my office I'd be merciless, but very few of us (IMO) think that way about golf.



    Most of us (Again, IMO) would much rather there be as many sellers of cool stuff here as possible and we don't really care if we get "ripped off" for a couple bucks grabbing something sweet.

    Cool perspective, thanks for the insight.

    Yes you probably are.



    You were completely out of line in what you did. You went into a poster's BST ad for the Scotty Cameron headcover - an ad that you had no interest in buying from - and posted a link to the Scotty Cameron Club website. Just to prove some sort of point.



    If someone wants to pay $90 or $100 for the Scotty Cameron bag because they don't want the other trinkets that come in the $125 Club Cameron package, we have no problem with that. And if the buyer and the seller are completely happy - who are you or anyone else to say otherwise?



    Going to close this down now as the comments certainly seem to have run their course.
