Individual 5er: I think banning EAG was a little harsh. Let me tell you why, At no time did Eric PM/ post message on this board to me about my car. I posted my email address on the initial listing, so he did in fact email me about the car (privately answering me).
In reply to the above quotes and the decision to ban, one can't just focus on this latest transgression.Regarding EAG's buying the car off the board and selling it for a profit, an immediate ban was not necessary. A warning and explanation of the board's policy would have been appropriate.
One needs to check EAG's past history (search past posts) to understand that the infrastructure of this forum was in fact used by EAG for commercial gain.
Also, from Eric's responses, I sensed a sense of entitlement to just transact as he pleases on this forum and for us to just mind our own business and move on.
I'm sure Gustav had his reasons to make that call and I'm also sure that he would consider a reasonable request by Eric for re-instatement.
IMO.....EAG/Eric just needs to decide wether they want to act in the capacity of a business or private member on these boards.
One thing has been made very clear now; Classified transactions are strictly for personal consumption.
