Quite a bit of discussion going on here.
I did not know my "Dha thread" and sale on the swap had so much effect
But seriously, It is quite clear why this thread started.
There are on occasion new
members who only start threads for apprasion and than put them in the swap forum shortly after.
I have seen them come, but also see them go...
Maybe you could implement some system where you have to be an active
member for a certain time before you are allowed to post items in the swap ?
These seekers of fortune probably won't have time and energy to actively join his forum without generating sales.
