...or any other payment service/method that does not provide buyer protection. We will remove ads that advertises these forms of payment.

Report anyone who uses an excuse like "My Paypal account is frozen."

    This post should be permanently pinned to the top of the board, not fall to the bottom like the older announcements.

    Use Paypal, goods and services only - or suffer the consequences.

    Is there a way to adjust it so a post DOESNT bump it to the top of the list?

    I like how even you guys are left in the dark.

    As an example... there's a guy that commented on my BST Ad about 15 minutes ago.

    No bump...which is a good thing.

    Communication since the Forum change has been laughable...on all levels.

    That's my point. The Ad didn't get bumped with the PM comment.
    Is this a new feature rollout?

    All I can say is that I'm removing duplicate posts i.e. members updating ad of sold items YET posting same info below in separate post. I'm doing this whether or not the ad is actually moving until software is good to go. Please realize this is my pet peeve and not necessarily the website's stance or opinion - if they disagree, they'll shut me down. Anyway, the site will be back to normal before long and then I can use my time more wisely elsewhere

    We all are adjusting to new processes. Currently ads need to be manually designated to unbump status.

    New format takes a bit of patience. Could posts be dated as before?? I can't keep track of what 's new and what I've already seen w/o dating.😥😥😥

    Why as a buyer can I not offer Venmo? If this is a forum for "friends" to trade cash for equipment I'd expect to use the same format I settle up a bar tab with my buddies to be accepted..

    I could come up with a long winded answer but the short one is - because. There are now over a quarter million registered users of this forum. To think there arent at least a few people out there who would attempt to defraud a member pool of this size - to me that would be the very definition of us being naive.

    Of the true cases of fraud in the BST over the last 10 years or so, every single one that I can remember was through one gifted form of payment or another. How many times have you read a case of this in the Deal or no Deal forum and then the person who got scammed admits they sent it Paypal friends and family. I will say, its nearly 100% of the time that I read those threads. Thats why we have always and will always have this rule.

    Paypal offers protections for both the buyer and the seller, it may not be perfect, but its something. If you dont like using Paypal or you dont like this rule - you are free to pursue other avenues of purchase such as ebay.

    Not sure why people have an issue with the board stating it's policy. It makes sense. They obviously can't police transactions so use what you want just don't start a thread complaining you got ripped off and used venmo.

    So instead of you letting adults be responsible for their own actions, you disallow perfectly acceptable forms of payment. Especially since the buyer can still gift through Paypal and get burned.

    "Letting adults be responsible for their own actions" sounds nice in theory but experience has taught us that its not a very sound management style nor a BST policy.

    What a different world we would live in if all adults assumed responsibility for their own actions.
