    Yeah, beyond banning them nothing else really ever happens but does there need to be a pages long discussion which often ends up being meme's and jokes need to happen every time someone gets scammed?

    To prevent this, they have the rules in place. I also think it is harsh for it to result in a ban but they do have the warning already there.

    Don't agree with the sales threads requiring comments though. Just look at how things are over here, you have the regular forum sheriffs who can't help but comment if they feel something is overpriced or was recently on sale.

    I dont know. Sometimes letting people comment might allow the anger and frustration pass and might just help in stopping the next bad deal.

    Anyway, wrt comments in the sales thread. I assume we have far less bad deals here than on carb due to the fact we have forum sheriffs.

    I know we have far less sales threads but still.

    Also something as simple as a 50 post rule and a month of being here to use the market place means that scammer would rather go to carb for quick money than come here and actually be part of a forum.

    But they have an Off-topic section for people to vent or discuss their frustrations or scamming in general. That particular section is about getting the scammer identified and banned as quickly as possible with only the Buyer/Seller/Mods involved.

    I think the 30-day, 50 post rules are more the deterrent to the scammers on this site but people stopping those 0 post people from buying or selling is not what I am talking about. I meant when people go into threads and post things like "It is only R200 more at Takealot". Over here that usually results in a whole discussion that inevitably has to be deleted by a Mod, over there it results in a warning/ban.

    Came here for banning news.

    Left disappointed because it's all about another forum.

    ”I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.” - Donald Trump

    @Squidbeard has self-requested a 1 year ban to get away for a while.
