Why am I saying this? Just some feedback from a new user... I posted looking for an old Yonex RD-7 the other day and noticed that I was approached by a few traders who (I think) had been banned on TW or were current new members on TW. It's not always easy to spot traders contacting you, must check their email address (which hardly ever changes) or their alias and compare it to those on fleabay or other places. They seem nice at first. Why am I pissed about this? Because these guys scoop email addresses from TW posts and buy up cheap from TW members, taking advantage of people's kindness to post items here and then flip the items on fleabay for a huge profit. Then they get angry when you try to negotiate the price, not knowing they are traders. Without knowing they are professional profiteers, you soon find out by their attitude towards you when you try to negotiate the price. I'm also pissed because these profiteers take advantage of the good folks here at TW who provide this free forum for members and tennis enthusiasts to exchange ideas and the occassional stick. What would I do about it? 1) Advise TW members to always ensure they buy/sell from other members and not fleabay traders. Advise members to always insist on getting the other persons TW alias, so you can look them up on the forums and verify them. 2) Stop allowing people to post their direct email addresses on TW classified posts, this means they bypass all scrutiny by working outside the forum. Instead ensure contact is made via profiles. If you think this is harsh and unwarranted then you have the option of listing or buying your items directly on fleabay and dealing with traders youself, don't expect TW forums to be the intermediary for doing this. It's like using someone else's shop to to sell your private items. Poor form.
