I'm not playing on the internet on a sunny Sunday sailing day - I am at work!

But, Mr man from China is now selling his wares on the For Sale forum - several times in a row. How can we get him off our backs?

It is a bit more blatant than a chap on here inviting folk to come and view his new website where he is flogging new motor boats for sale - the Chinese chap is also inviting folk to come and look at his (numerous!) websites.

But shouldn't the same rules apply to everybody re commercial activity?
I dont have anything against anybody on these forums - I enjoy reading everybody's input, and I would never put anybody on 'ignore' - I just think that if there are rules, folk should abide by them, rather than try to bend them.

We went through all this a couple of weeks ago, working out the balance between blatant sales pitch and a single link to a member's own site that may be of interest to others. Informal "rules" evolved, which everyone seemed happy with.

Surely any form of "spam" on the forums should result in immediate banishment?

Don't look at them and don't reply. If they check and see no views and no replies it might put them off in future. Finally, notify a moderator.
