We all know it's a no-no to bash people in any "for sale" threads.
So, can we have a stickie where people can post names of price gougers?
That way they will always be remembered for infinity.
Also keeps the for sale ads clean.
Maybe call it, The Wall of Gougers?
OK, not the greatest name but someone can come up with something better.

Oh hell no.

We've already had this conversation, many times. What I call gouging, you might call a fair price. There's no way to define "gouging" for sure, and we're sure as hell not going to start an intra-forum war over it.

I agree with Madpick - it is a little too subjective. I've even had instances where I had something and tried to sell it for around what I had purchased it for and found out that, well, I way overpaid. Pricing an item for sale is tough enough. I always figure if it doesn't sell, I lower the price. At some point, I may just decide to keep it. A seller wants the max, and the buyer wants a deal. The asking price is not always the selling price.

Most of the horrendous posts I have seen have been on ammo, and by new members or members with next to zero post count. They'll be gone soon and it won't be a problem.

Now, a wall for those who helped others in tough times with good deals....that could work :thumbsup2:
