In terms of sales corner (I have to be careful what I say here as I intend putting a watch up for sale later) surely the solution to the first time post being a sales pitch is either (a) impose a minimum number of posts, or to circumvent speed posting (b) a minimum period of forum membership or a combination of the two before a sales post is permitted. So a sales post would be inadmissible to a person with say less than 50 posts and less than 30 days membership or something along these lines.
I recall this was debated last month and as someone said, posting 50 over one month can be readily achieved but i still agree with you insofar as it would put off potential scammers like the seller of the omega this month on sc who had immitated a bonafide bulgarian seller name with great credentials from another forum and tried it on here...
