Thank you, Terry, for that post. So far, the only valid reason listed in this thread for not having one here is Tom's comment about the possibility of loss of advertising revenue for the magazine. I guess what I find distasteful is the perpetual "we can't do that! we're not a store!" excuse, when it's really just a matter of personal preference. Just say "we don't know how to do it without drowning ourselves in it so we won't even try" and let that be that. Anything else is an insult to our intelligence. Maybe that flies fine with some...
But I digress. Plastic, here I come.
I have to pick this one apart here,
This is all so silly, so what, you can't buy and sell, so what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does this mean that all other reasons are invalid befause they are not your reasons????????
Doesn't this demonize everyone else and ridicule their opinions????

Okay, so you feel that is distasteful. I find licorice distasteful but it's no big deal to me.

Again wih the selfdetermined thoughts of a supposed majority of the site. I'l be the first to say I am not included in that "our" group.
If that really insults your intelligence you must have had a heart attack when Beyonce did her halftime "show", Now that was an insult to anyone who has intelligence..
If I wanted to sell something, as I have with those who have PM'd me, I would never expect a site to be accountable for the transaction.
Nor would I raise a public fuss if the deal went south.
If anyone needs a special portion of the site to Buy and Sell stuff, it is because they do not want to go to the trouble of setting up their own site for that purpose.
It is always easier to get on someone else's gravytrain.
