    Re: Mistake: new rule about FS comments

    A lot of times the so-called experts, or people like myself, are wrong. Currently there is a fellow selling a nice Technika and I wrote some stuff that is flat-out wrong, corrected by a real expert (Bob S.) and acknowledged/apologized by myself further down the thread. So unless the moderators inspect and edit every thread, it's a problem. Or just a normal imperfect human exchange, depending how you look at it.

    I think it will enhance the process. Someone who will not make the correction after being PM'ed politely, will be suspect -- those who made an honest mistake will correct the situation on their own post.
    If a private notification of inaccuracy is ignored, how will anyone know?

    Exactly. Plus other people learn from these public exchanges. If these public posts are rude or mischievous they can be easily dealt using current guidelines.

    Good point, but I believe it is better to be polite first, then nail them, if needed.

    How would you nail them if you can't reply to the offending post?

    Do you mean "Asher's?"

    After being polite, and hopefully understanding, the guidelines ask that you refrain, not actually prohibit you, from posting. If the issue was just about pricing or perhaps one's opinion about "rarity", then one would just keep one's mouth shut and let the market do its work. If it was about fraud, then post and contact the moderators.

    If it about "educating" the forum members, then make a new post of the topic in the main forum and educate us. If it is too much trouble to post such things in the main forum, then the issue is not important enough to be rude by posting on the seller's post.
