RFS = Great Idea
In Response To: My concern is... ()

RFS = great idea.

what about your "other idea"? maybe poll the fellas and see whether there is interest?



: My concern is that if we are going to say
: "But direct 'for sale' postings,
: commercial solicitation and ads are not
: allowed", in the masthead and further
: spell out: "For Sale, Want to Buy,
: etc. Type Posts

: The discussion forums here are for exchange of
: helpful information--not for your use in
: selling things you have or for promoting
: specific sellers of things. No 'for sale,'
: 'want to buy,' advertisements or direct
: links to dealer sites are allowed in
: discussion forum messages." in the
: policies page we should enforce it and
: enforce it evenly, or it'll cause the
: moderators problems in the future.

: This is the potential problem if we aren't
: careful...

: How about permitting a RFS? Request For
: Sources? In other words, if someone is
: looking for sources for something (be it
: information, or materials, it's permissable
: for them to post a Request For Sources as
: long as they provide an email address and
: responses are done via email?

: I think that's a reasonable compromise.
