It seems to work OK. I don't have a prob with the BRMC Doves thread. If someone is like "Bump. Pile of pencil shavings added." that's a different story.
correct. I don't especially like the rules we have here, mostly because we have to enforce them. In the end what we have had to do is patch up all the ways you guys have tried to cheat the 'dont be a jackass' system. ...and ya, we had issues with guys starting a zillion threads and treating b&s like their own ebay store...so 'add em into your other thread' and bump it so we don't get 19 threads from you, one for each size of the same pair of pants you just bought at Ross to flip. The one that I always go back to was when we had a guy who, in response to the 'only when you drop prices' threw in five cent price drops so he could bump....so we make up a 5% rule. Then we had issues with people starting conversations with themselves about their own items with sock puppets...this led to bannings and a 'all questions must be answered on PM or by editing original posts' rules. Sooo....it's annoying as fuck, ban hammers are being weilded, it's unnecessarily heavy handed, but you guys brought it on yourselves.
