While I understand that this message can seem off-putting, did you actually read the sticky referred to? It says :
We are not impugning the character of ANY OP, but a few Members have lost money in dealing with the "less-than-honest" amongst us.
Therefore, this is my promise to you as long as I am a Moderator: I will personally read EVERY post in the Flea Market.
I will post this (in green below), when a Member has less than 50 posts and/or has been a Member of MobileRead for less than six months:
This has been board policy since May of last year, and is pretty well spelled out for purpose (people have been scammed here, it's been an effective deterrent) and for methodology. If anything, having a policy in place makes people more willing to use the flea market, and the users here understand that it doesn't mean Dr. Drib is attacking any seller personally.
