It has been noted by many members that new users are joining the forum and then posting pm replied to wanted ads offering up the desired goods. I’ve posted links to a couple of threads where this has been discussed. Be vigilant people and please report any similar activity and I’ll ban the offending users.

Yeah, that didn’t feel right, but Lucy’s friend had the very odd piece I needed.
Dang it Lucy, quit teasing.

Sorry, someone seems to have deleted them. Basically you’ll get a pm, probably from a new user with zero posts, saying that their friend might have what you’re after and an email address for you to contact them
