Going through the classifieds is hard enough. I am sure I am not the only one who thinks the grass is always greener across the bridge, no matter which side you live on. I can always find nice firearms on my wish list for sale in Washington. Then add in that most of the ads a few days old or older are for sold or trades items, but the ad is still open and it becomes a real headache. I have spent hours emailing directions to new members explaining how to close classified threads. It seems to be getting worse. Perhaps we need to require you to have been a member of the site for specific amount of time or to have a certain number of posts under your belt before your aloud to post in the classifieds. I am not sure what the solution is. Just recently I am noticing a lot of "Please Delete" in the title of the ad, if new members are reading the rules then they should know they need to close their own threads. Dose this drive anyone else nuts?
