Post subject:  None of my business: Dealer News Forum

When a dealer has something to sell - in this instance a McIntosh " trade-in " - Isn't he supposed to publish a dealer ad in the main buy-sell area? CAM is somewhat strict on who is allowed to post where and under what conditions - And I do agree with this, but still...

I think it is fine for a dealer to announce new product lines, gatherings etc. But if we cannot respond to a product offered for sale in the dealer forum (as the rules do not permit this) maybe this means the "ad" should not be there in the first place.

Just nit-picking on the question of priciples.

It's just an opportunity for dealers to make an announcement to the forum dwellers who may not be pouring through the classifieds. In one case recently a dealer announced a free record cleaning opportunity which was nice. Sometimes they announce a new product coming in. I see no harm. It gives them an extra venue to promote outside the classifieds.

It's when some of them utilize other discussion threads as a venue to harvest customers that's a problem...

Agree in full. I see no harm unless it becomes hundreds of posts; to date that is not the case.

I also see no harm, but was curious, since an item is obviously put on sale - yet it is very clearly stated that we cannot post on dealers forum....no big deal.

Dealers should use the Classifieds when they have an item for sale. They should not use the Dealer News and Announcements forum to tell people they have just posted an item in the classifieds or that people should contact them for further pricing and details. There are not Classifieds allowed in the forums.
