The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
A forum to me should be a little more than just info. I'm very pragmatic, and hard nosed when it comes to research. But it's always nice when someone helps lighten the mood a little. If this place was all about specs and hard data, it'd lose the human element that has led me to make a couple of awesome off forum buddies.

Some pretty valid points here.
I'm guilty of posting the occasional bump comment, not to help anyone 'go to the top of the list' but to show my appreciation for a nice piece of craftsmanship; particularly if it's something produced by one of our own. But not always.
I would also like to see an option for the OP to flag a b/s/t thread as "sold", but only if it keeps all post content intact. If it is decided that the moderators should flag posts, that's fine...but we don't want to chase down every seller to confirm a sale. You guys gotta work with us.
I use b/s/t for research when I am considering a purchase, so I would really miss the ability to view those old posts.
The fluff posts don't bother me that much. The 6 months later "is this still available?" do.
Todd pretty much stated how I feel in his post.

Of course the people that are there are all heavily armed but they are super friendly.
