Default Posting count nonsense

I think that the post count for selling an item is extremely high and unwarranted! The fact that I have been on this site since 2009 and now I can't sell a metal detector is ridiculous for the only reason being that my post count hasn't met an arbitrary number of 200 posts! My posting frequency is not an indicator of my character and I find that thinking offensive. Simply put this hurts other members who as enthusiasts have a desire to upgrade and are denied opportunities to do so because of this draconian rule. This will be my last post, as I request that the administrators of this site delete my profile from this forum.

R/S,

TM

Post count may not say anything about your character, but that last post of yours sure does..

You have been a member here for almost 10 years and still haven’t hit 200 posts?

Somebody needs their diaper changed, a bottle, burped and put down for a nap. Or maybe they need to start buying their pants in the men's department for a change.

Just a thought. That post is the epitome of someone that I wouldn't be interested in making any type of monetary transaction with. Seems pretty unreasonable.

Come on guys, give him a break. He is entitled to his opinion.

To the OP: This rule and the reason why has been discussed on this forum many times. You are free to disagree, but the rules are what they are and they are not capricious. For example, read this thread. http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=199395

Or this one http://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=254265

Some that only sell on this forum got caught up when the rule was set but in one morning they got on the forum with a couple hundred replies, accumulated those 200 posts and continued on.
It would have taken him less than 20 minutes to get his remaining 76, instead he does this.
Don't get it.

Good to go.
