The classifieds are one of my favorite sections.

Why not add to the amusement with a "men looking for women to cruise with" thread? They have one of those on the cruisers forum, hours of good entertainment.

It's one of 36 discussion areas in TF. If you don't like it, you have 35 other subject areas to visit. Don't ruin it for the others that enjoy that thread.

I agree why does matter if all they post is classifieds? If it's boating related Who cares? Explain what it hurts?

I have no problem with boat related classifieds. Just one of the many great areas of TF.

I see classifieds as a member to member facility, but if someone joins just to post a personal boat or marine related item for sale, that should not deprive members of seeing what might be a good buying opportunity. And, checking classifieds is not compulsory.

But since you commented the below pic is what I thought..

If brokers and such are allowed to put their business link on every post they make I don't see how anybody can complain about the classified's.

Some of the gear heads on TF sense a more insidious movement - creeping Facebook similarities!

I agree Marty,

Not going to war over this. It's just a bit more than fly stuff.

But if someone wants to discuss it I'm ok w that too.

I found this site because of a KK 42 on craigslist last year and have continued to enjoy the site. What I like most is very little bureaucratic crap, just an easy going pleasant place to visit a few times a day.

I enjoy the classifieds section. I have made one purchase so far and it was an A rated transaction.

I am on the side of "if you don't like it then don't go look at that section" group i guess.

I DONT like the spammers, and if that's what you are referring to then i am with you there...

On the other hand, the more people selling crap on here, the less I have to go to CL and weed thru that crap...LOL and sometimes I see stuff for sale that i didnt even know I needed!

Also, a generous post count on here does NOT a reliable seller make... although it does give SOME credence...

So much stuff on Craig's List I spend time there in "boats" as entertainment. So many boats and so much gear to look at. Do it w my I-pad during commercials while watching TV. If the program is bad enough I just "watch" Craig's List.
