So, this AM, I banned an owner for a month for posting his/her email address later in a his/her rental thread.

In addition, I deleted the following ads: one "wanted" ad placed in the "for rent" forum; one "for transfer" ad that did not include total price; one ad that was actually merely an edit of an ad originally posted three days ago....

And I haven't even gotten to the "Wanted" forums yet. I read EVERY new RTB post in every thread, every day -- all to ensure that email addresses and phone numbers have not been posted and that, as far as I can determine, nothing shady is going on. All of this is done in an effort to protect people (to the extent that I can) from scamming. And yet, people WILL NOT LISTEN. It is so disrespectful. Jeez.

Okay, now on to the "Wanted" sections....

Also, I have determined that I hate the word "p e r c h a n c e" and have censored it out of any posts. This is not a forum on the works of Shakespeare. Do not use it.

I would recommend a nice glass (or more) of wine when looking through these. And you hit the nail on the head when you said people just donít want to be protected. Some want to do what is fast and easy even if it exposes them to scamming which is unfortunate. Good luck!

Okay. So, in the "Wanted" sections, I deleted a thread in which the OP placed his/her phone number (and made him/her a moderated user, so that all future posts will be moderated; further infractions will result in suspension). In addition, I banned a responding owner for a month for including her email in a response.

If people would only take the three minutes required to READ THE RULES, the RTB wouldn't require nearly so much work.

It's a little early for that, even for me. More's the pity.

Pretend you're visiting me, in Edinburgh. 8:40 in the evening, perfect time for a glass of wine. In fact I'll pour you one (and drink it for you ).

I am currently on the banned list since I broke the email rule. I did change the new post and I do believe it follows the rules.

My apologies.

I'm not a fan myself, nor of its cousin " per se".
Thank you for this wonderful board, Kim.
