Just wondering why ebay links are all of a sudden not allowed?

Not all of a sudden.

Check the "read this before posting" in the for sale forum.

I don't want to argue this, but I do wonder : why are they not allowed?

It seems like a valuble resource for both the buyer and the seller- it allows both parties to judge trustworthiness based on feedback; it easily sincs with both Paypal and UPS- providing buyer protection and quick and easy shipping etc...

Again, I don't want to seem argumentitive- I just want to understand the reasoning for this.

My understanding was the for sale forum was to facilitate trade between WWs, but it was being filled by people with only registering to post there to increase the number of people looking at their e-Bay listing/s.

What if for sale listings were restricted to members who'd been subscribed to the forum for say 3 months, to prevent so many opportunist ebay spammers.

This can work, but it is much harder to put into action - and would require Florian and Frankie-B to put even more time into the forum to set and reset all the member's approvals.
