RE: 1980 LS
As a matter of fact we did, and occasionally continue to have spammers and scammers on this site as well as every other I am aware of.
I increased the necessity for further documentation to help eliminate that, to prove that the person selling something actually owned it and had it in their possession before posting.I wanted to help protect our members of which I am one
They have also been put in place to help eliminate those that would chose to use our site as a selling only forum... the one-time posters that only come on to sell their wares.
If you think these rules are harsh, you should see the ones on the other Mazda site I Mod for.
I know this can be inconvenient for those honest members, including me, and I hated to feel the need to do it too, but thats the world we live in today.
I applaud you for actually reading the rules. I have eliminated many threads and posts already(Mazmart Trini can attest) from "new" members that obviously did not.
