I see the classified ads section just got a bit more interesting last night

I have a bucket of steam for sale made from the tears of unicorns (metric only I'm afraid). Please pay me in used nine bob notes, washed dollars or gold. Generous discounts available for the illuminati - make yourselves known to me in the usual way.

International shipping available up to the 31st January, after that please arrange your own couriers as I'm blowed if I known what will be happening then, unless you live in Tonga, I hear we have a trade deal in place with you...

Next time let a moderator know by PM rather than posting a silly thread then we can deal with it sooner. As it was I deleted as soon as I visited the forum today.

But if you click them it says not available, system will update in a while. Also several forum posts by same person deleted.

 

EDIT looks like it already has, think it does it hourly.

Sounds like a Don Valley voter (the illuminate will work that one out). Nothing so wrong with a lighthearted advert nor thread bringing attention to it.

Perhaps people can post their ads here instead.

I have some sachets of pre-dried water available at only 50p each plus postage.

Check with Neil Wyatt, Jason, He will confirm I sent a message about these ads before I posted any forum response. No need to slap your forum users around, a suggestion is one thing, your blunt approach is quite another.

Steady on! Following on from the Don Valley comment it's not the moderators that are at fault but the dumb forum users. disgust

There is when it's political.

I don't see the attraction in falling out over history

Ok folks, let's bury the hatchet (in the ground not each other).

It's probably worth messaging both Jason and me as we are not on line 24/7.

Cheers

Neil
