    Jimbo, pardon my denseness, but I just can't quite grasp what you're bleating about. Which of your many oxen has been gored, by who and how?

    It seems to me the classifieds work well. I don't know why Jim Galli has a problem with the way it is set up, nor what precipitated his rant. Bad day at the office?

    Jim, sorry but I don't agree.

    Bumping is self stimulating, if bumping is allowed then those not doing it are pushed to also do it, and then the Activity Stream fills with noise.

    I guess that then new anti-bumping rules can and should be better, but something had to be done...

    Those restrictions perhaps are a bit excessive, but they are not harmful, it just makes the sellers think better what price has to be offered. At the end offers will have a similar visibility if noise is removed.

    Jim, my proposition is you wait a bit to see how this new system goes before judging it, probably it will be better than it looks, and probably it will need some adjustments: Thesys-Antithesys-Synthesys...

    hmmm.... those 300 lenses... perhaps only 250 are there, those sawed in halves count like a single one each, not two!

    I'm will not let politics wedge itself between me and an artist/craftsman of your depth. To do so would be an aesthetic lobotomy. Keep on, Jim!

    Are more moderators needed? I've moderated forums before, it can be work but it can be fun too. If more are needed, put out the call.

    And, if clogging the "Unified View" stream by bumping ad listings is an issue, reprogram the stream to ignore those. It's just a PHP site, it's not that complicated, I'd even volunteer to look at the code. Really it would be one query that would need modification to ignore the posts in various forums (which is part of the metadata of the post, undoubtedly). There's plenty of technical solutions to solve these sort of issues. Just sayin'.

    Ed, it is indeed technically easy to do. But we have discussed it at length on more than one occasion and for a variety of reasons we have chosen not to.

    I donít buy that for a moment. We donít know about them because they donít get the press, IMO.
