You guys all know that a month from now no one will really care, right?
I quoteth Shakespeare- "Much ado about nothing!"
I remember the early nineties, at the very start of the internet, when many BBS sysops got a rush of "we are the net and you all are newbies" megalomania and started to sport a "accept my rules or go away" attitude - which pretty much killed off the whole BBS thing (and many core structures of the Fido network) on the spot, several years before the Internet could provide a substitute in the form of web forums...

I go to "The Lounge" when I want to exercise free speech, not "For Sale".
Sometimes people don't know exactly what they are selling and make an honest mistake in misrepresenting it. I think most people, in that event, would rather be corrected before the sale than complete the sale of a misrepresented item.
Hopefully the new rule, if upheld by the court, won't prevent that sort of (public but polite) correction that currently occurs. Forcing those corrections to be via PMs will inhibit the process.
