it bothers me that some want to have their cake and eat it too. Out of 25 listings on the first page of the For Sale forum, there are only 8 with a blue banner. Some of those without are very regular posters. We should be able to do better than that.
WOW!!! John's post is amazing. I never really thought about it, but now that it has been brought to my attention, I think it requires action. Where else can you buy and sell for free with such a focused market group? I have sold and bought on the Forum and have always tried to support OGR because I think that they try to support us in our hobby. I WILL BE BOYCOTTING SELLERS WHO ARE NOT SUPPORTING MEMBERS AND URGE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME. It amazes me how some people freeload and are not supportive of the very institutions which support them.
My supporting membership is due to renew this month. I value the Forum and am glad to be a supporting member.
