Which version of **** are you using? Does it circumvent the 30 post rule?
It's the Beta Gamma version - circumvents, circumnavigates and circumeverythings - so be careful!

Ooh - Am I a speed poster? How exciting. Criticised for not posting enough and criticised for posting too much. What fun.

Been around here for ages and tried to steer clear of the controversial debates. Now I know why. I merely expressed my feelings yesterday. It wasn't a criticism of the decision just a comment on the effect it had on me. I even implied it was irrational.

Just popped out of the pub. Think I'll nip back. :)

Always the bloody same! Some people join purely to sell watches and everyone suffers. Stuff the post count necessity to see the forums then PM's are available to buyers if they desire to buy, but anyone who just posts in the SC gets banned, regardless of post count. If 100%of your posts are in SC or your first posts are in SC, just ban them outright.

No warning, no second chance.

Expect a small surge from me. I considered launching a jihad to overturn the rule of unjustness... but then figured the easiest thing to do was to go with the flow! My main reason for lurking is that I find typing on my phone somewhat irksome. Nevertheless, my genuine "chap" credentials mean that I shall endeavour to maintain the quality of my posts.

Ps. For anyone reviewing my posts in the future, my tongue is often so far in my cheek that I end up chewing it!

I've been too busy at work working stupid hours to log into the forum this week so I thought i'd have a relaxing cafetiere of coffee and a quick 30 mins on here before doing the usual Saturday morning chores. Noticed Hans' perfectly sensible measure that will dissuade some opportunistic types from using the forum for the purpose of selling watches and goodness me what ensued is a lot of fuss over nothing. Not so long ago I too was a newcomer to the forum. I didn't even know that it contained a sales corner and I certainly didn't join to buy and sell watches. I made sure that I participated in the forum before even considering buying a watch from someone I had never seen or spoken to. Our primary reason for being on here is to get involved and contribute to the forum. If, however, your primary reason for being on here is to buy and sell then you're probably in the wrong place. If on the other hand your reason for being here is to contribute you won't be offended by the new rule,

Very well put.

I may have been in a slightly bad mood last night (health again!) but I do honestly feel that anyone who never posts or post purely in the SC should be banned from the site outright. I know some people are not as "gobby" as me, but to never post anything other than PM's to members with regards to buying watches cheaper than bloody eBay, is just not on old chap.

All these members that have never been heard from before who are now speeding their way to 30+ posts purely to re-gain access to SC should be banned straight away. Sorry, but that's the way I feel. If they want to prove me wrong by sticking around and posting some more, then please, feel free.
