How bout staying out of threads... (in General)

that you don't belong in. Hasn't affected me but yeah, I guess I'm just in a mood today. And I've seen it too many times. You don't like what is asked for or offered in a thread (aside from a general thread) then move on. Injecting your 2 pennies when no one is asking for it has a time and a place and it's not in the FS/WTB or Services threads.
But it is here so have at it.

Nobody but the original poster can post in FS/WTB...

I'm guessing the person/people that created the thread and/or will be involved in the thread. Today probably was a bad day for me to let my fingers get the best of me but everyone else seems to voice their feelings so I gave in.
And my feeling is this (be it right or wrong). If someone is selling something, shouldn't we, out of nothing more than respect, stay out of that thread unless we have an interest in said item. Or should it just become acceptable to just pop into someone elses thread to say... "wow, you're a thief with prices like that", or to chime in to a loan PR to say " he he, man are you getting ripped off with that interest rate".
I suppose it is a free country (referring to CB land of course).

yes small, you are correct. thank you for adding NOTHING to the discussion except for my complete lack of attention to what i'm doing. :D

if i remember correctly, that was the reason now that fs/wtb threads are set up that way. too many people were adding their dos centavos to threads. maybe services needs to follow suit?

Oh, pay him no mind. Tizzy's not a real forger.

I think if, for example, someone is purposely overcharging for a service and there is the chance that new players will fall for it, is the right of the rest of the community to comment on that thread and prevent anyone from being scammed.

Lord Bob, I like that at least you have other peoples best interest in mind with your statement, but to be sure, that is not what my statement was referring to. And even in that case there are better ways than just jumping into a thread to protect people.

Well sorry that threads were not made like that but....peeps can say what they want when they long as its PG

Yes, you can say what you want, nobody is denying your 1st amendment rights.

But when you post in someone's services thread, like you did Here, it is pointless, useless, and only spams up the thread.

Go ahead and post, but if you're going to post spam, like you did in that thread, please refrain from clicking "Submit".

Service threads are basically a PR about loans or forging.

PR also just that, a record of a transaction.

However, off-topic and general threads are fair game for disagreements as long as they are PG.

I prefer to even keep personal attacks out of those threads but quite a lot of times they degenerate into such hatefests.

"I like that at least you have other peoples best interest in mind with your statement, but to be sure, that is not what my statement was referring to."

I wasn't sure what specific thread you were referring to, I was just offering some thoughts on the general topic.
