The for sale section is for members to post their items for sale. Not for pointing to good deals found here and there. We have in the past allowed links to various places in the general area and the locals, but would rather not have the forum full of sale items. After all, if you can find them on craigs list or ebay, so can someone else.
Use your best judgment when posting these things.
SB, your ad is still there because it was your ad. However, even when posting links to other places such as craigs or ebay, location and price are still required in the post or the thread will be deleted.
The rules are to keep the forum clean and easy to use so members can sort quickly through the for sale items and find things which best serve their purpose.
Hope that helps.
