The rules you speak of have already been implemented. Please read the stickies at the top of the BST section.

Sellers must obtain 25 posts in order to sell, buyers have no limit. Given that during a transaction, the large majority of risk is placed on the buyer as most of the time payment is required first.

Given the activity on our forums compared your your example of XS, 25 posts is adequate to establish a "reputation". We also take it one step further and require the seller to actually prove he has the item in his possession.

I think that the current steps that HWC has taken to alleviate bad deals is more than most, especially for a "free" section, but as always it is "buyer/seller" beware when doing transactions online.

Regarding the issues, Mark, you are having with 1 posts wonders and such, if you do suspect someone of opening multiple accounts to establish interest at a lowball price, or spam etc. feel free to PM the mods directly with your concerns and they should be able to clear up any issues.
