Not true - This is my second post asking to leave. The first one was locked, for no reason. I understand that the rules prohibit any eBay link. And you are correct, I don't agree with that. So I'm doing the right thing and asking to leave.
As I told you, and in encouragement--this is a great site with many wonderful and helpful members.
We have rules just like every other forum.
If your only reason for joining was to post threads for your eBay listings--that's just wrong.
It seemed as though you just didn't bother to read the rules before posting.
You didn't even post in the Account Verification or New Members Introduce Yourselves threads. When the mods closed your thread--you just wanted to leave.
Like I previously mentioned--take a deep breath, read the rules and stick around.
If you want to sell items--do it! Just make sure they aren't listed on eBay or other auction sites.
This is in no way disrespectful to you, you weren't singled out--you just have to follow the same rules as everyone else.
That eBay rule is there for good reason. No need to get upset about it.
It's for protection--as are the rest if the Jemsite policies.
The site admin is far too busy with "real life" issues than to worry about something as trivial as this.
Our mods are top-notch and handle these issues in a quick and respectful manner. I'm sure your request has already been passed over to them.
If you just can't follow the rules and don't want to be part of the best guitar forum on the Internet--just stop logging in and posting these threads.
One upset rule-breaker is certainly not contributing to the community or the traffic statistics--well, actually these repeated threads and posts do.
Really sorry to hear about your discomfort, but you should have read all of the rules before even posting.
I suggest that before joining and posting in future forums--read their rules before you run into the same problem.
