My thoughts regarding third party ads (Craigslist, ebay, etc)
They are annoying. But sometimes helpful.
How about rather than having 117 different threads, one of the moderators (me maybe) create a sticky thread along the lines of:
Post craigslist/ebay finds here
It should be a thread JUST for links. No comments, etc.
Because, truthfully, they are helpful. I mean I ended up picking up a roof rack from a Minneapolis Craigslist find and sent it to someone on this board in Toronto.
Just my thoughts...
