Scam buying is more difficult than scam selling, though paypal can cause issues, the onus is on the SELLER to ensure they are properly protected and the seller has the right to refuse a sale, no one is forcing them.

So basically, anyone is free to read the BST but only those with like a 25-50 post count can post under the section?
I think it could lead to some pointless posts... between 25 and 50 pointless posts.... depending on if people abuse it or not. It does sound like a good idea to try out though.

Personally I just ignore BST posts from people who haven't been around for too long and not mentioning any names but to me the worst deals I've heard of have been with members who have more then 50 posts under their belt.

So I'm not sure how much its going to help other then clearing up some of the clutter in that section. I like the idea of a sticky post in that section giving tips on not getting scammed and advising people that trading with new and unknown members is dangerous.

Oh and consolidating the current stickys in that thread -

1)Updates & Current Changes with buy sell rules can be integrated with Buy/Sell Trade rules.
2) Tips for saving money on shipping costs can be expanded to include tips for not getting scammed.
3) Thread Crapping Clean up explained... this sticky can be removed as it has served its original purpose.
4)Review Units & iTrader - Leave as is.
