    Nobody wanted your item before. So you renewed your auction and spammed
    again here. Spammer is violating eBay's policies, notably the spam is
    reportable under the following category:

    Listing practices -> Avoiding eBay fees -> Offers outside of eBay

    Spam reported to eBay and Giganews.

  3. Vanguard, I appreciate that you are a stickler for rules and don't
    care to see items for sale, but, directing someone to your ebay
    listing is NOT and offer for sale outside of ebay.

    Also, it isn't really spam is it if it is subaru related items in the
    subaru newsgroup. If it were, say, a porn site, or someone holding a
    million dollars for you in Nigeria - you might have a point.

    Just encourage people to use the stuff for sale thread - and then
    avoid it if you don't want to see items for sale. Someone here may
    really appreciate finding an item they need.

  4. Vanguard is correct on 'totally' correct Usenet etiquette.

    AAS is *not* a forsale newsgroup.

    Even the "forsale' froups would consider "X-Eliminator"s posts as spam
    because he's false-tagging them as FS rather than FA (for auction)
    eBay also considers this simple thing as a TOS violation.

    There is another lower standard on Usenet selling that fits here as
    well. It's hard to put it in worlds because it varies with the 'froup
    mind' of each newsgroup.

    It boils down to participation.

    FS, FA, FT posts are usually OK in most froups *IF* the poster actually
    does make some constructive posts (even if it's just a followup
    excuse/apology to being pilloried for spamming).

    In other words, you, me, Yousef, Hatch or such could do an occasional
    "forsale' and even Vang wouldn't mind it.

    Has anyone ever seen a "real" post from this "X-Eliminator" ??
    I haven't. He's a drive-by spammer.

    "X-Eliminator" just earned a doublewhack from eBay (via mu complaints
    for being a 'drive-by' usenet spammer, and then re-posting his bogus FS.

  5. Point taken. I suppose I was being too lenient.

  7. So now you are going to "participate"?

    And here Texan can view the disdain that X-Eliminator has for the
    purpose of this newsgroup. Anyone telling him that this is not a
    for-sale group must, of course, be a moderator wannabe. Gee, like we've
    never seen that response before from a spammer.

  9. No Chit, Sharley Brown......

    I hope I wasn't putting words in your mouth with this:

    I'll admit; you might have flamed me if i did it, but that's a given.

    I usually play a little looser on the absolutes in lower-traffic froups
    like AAS, and let the "froup mind" work things like this out. That's the
    way I play here. Other places? surgical strike as soon as detected.

    "X-Eliminator" isn't part of any "froup mind" here..
