Default Putting Price in Classifieds

Can OSO post a notice in the section where you start a classified add that says "IT PISSES OSO MEMBERS OFF IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A PRICE IN YOUR AD, IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A PRICE, AND DO NOT GET CALLS, CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED"....

I am looking at boats now, looking to buy in reasonably short order, and I for one am not even about to click on an ad with no price cause I know right away if I call I am going to rotten azzed used car salesman who decided he could make a truck load of money selling boat trying all the nickel azzed negotiation games.

Am I just off my rocker, or does everyone else look at this with the same disdain I do???

Let us know when you start your own website, then you can make the rules.

There is such a rule on donzi.net

I'm with you, Dean. I hate it when there is no price in a classified. I usually ignore those and move on.
I have much more lengthy posts on this matter here, didn't feel like retyping it all:

Amen.. when ever I see that I just assume I dont want to know the price cause it's too high...

And how about pricing it right so it actually moves...

Yeah, I should point out I don't look at them either if there is no price.

It is annoying, but by not putting the phone number it will make some people curious and they will call.

I never even consider an ad if there is no price I got better things to do than play phone tag just to find out some body's crazy.

I agree with you 100%. It's just that some sellers think they have a pot of gold and some buyers whan something for nothing.

I always post a price and it's pretty darn close to what I'll let it go for. Time is $$
