    Why is there not a classified ad section to the forums?

    As simple as the title states, why is there not a classified ad section to the forums? Might be a good time to develop such....

    It's impossible to protect one's private info if one person shipped an item to another.

    So what? Are you implying you cannot conduct ecommerce because it reveals who you really are?

    We don't conduct business here. There are other formats for that.

    The reason is classified.

    "WE really do not give a Rat's John Brown Hind Parts how you folks in England do things. We really do not give a owl's hoot, what you think of our way of life. You are simple a mealy mouthed Brit SUBJECT, trying to compare our great country, to yours. It doesn't work, but keep trying. It lets us know that liberals are stoopid, all over." - tiny1

    There are far better places.

    We only have about a hundred active members here. Put something on the List Of Craig, and millions see it nationwide - the local version and through SearchTempest.

    This would be a massive security risk and what would one be selling on a politics forum to start with? Best stick with Craigslist.

    Exactly.
    Suppose I get tangled up with a muslim on this site witch I often do.
    Said muslim gets my address.
    Said muslim can now send me a bomb.
    muslims are extremely unstable and violent.

    What for? That's what eBay and Amazon are for. Not only that, but what would anyone want to sell on a political forum?
