Minor grumble, more than a rant:

I know these are well intended posts, but surely making the entire forum aware of an ebay 'bargain' is ultimately gonna push the price up & defeat the object of posting in the first place :rolleyes:

Ask me a question that only nom-nom would know the answer too :p :lol:

No-one in agreement with me on this then? :confused:

Just strikes me that a potential bargain is no longer that, when the item is broadcasted to a specialist audience

Completely agree fella. If I find a bargain I'm interested in, I'm sure as hell not going to advertise it here!!

Isn't it better going to an enthusiast on here than some Mikey Pikey type who is just gonna thrash it & kill it. If I ever spot one I am usually not looking to buy, just browsing.

Suppose we could post it on 156.net instead?

Where is that "Whistling" smiley :)

Am more angling on the parts side, I agreee that an entire Alfa should go to the right person - Oh & norty Keith :tut: :lol:


Well if I sell my Ragazzon on ebay I am going to tell everyone about it. :p

Fair fo's - it's yours to broadcast :) , am talking about 'random' bargains that folk find on the 'bay & post links to :tut:

I suppose if you aren't bidding yourself you are at least bringing a potential good deal to the attention of others. Once the price goes up you're no worse off than if someone else had bid on it so I think it's OK tbh. Free market and all that.

I wasn't answering the thread in order to not raise it to too many people's attention - in case that made you angry. :p

i know what you mean 0of0, i posted a link a week or so ago, but didn't think about the fact that someone else on here might have been lurking in the background waiting to snap up a deal. i think if it is a car, or a hard to get item, maybe we should keep quiet. but if there are loads available, flag them up?
