Well, you can do this to make them not show up under new posts:

1.) Go to Quick Liniks -> Edit options and scroll all the way to the bottom.
2.) Choose "Miata Marketplace" from the list of forums
3.) Save Changes
4.) Receive Bacon
5.) ???
6.) Profit

To keep them from showing up under searching, you could do an advanced search and limit it (with the forum list on the right) to the forum(s) that should contain the info your looking for.

Does anyone even buy from those ebay auctions? I was looking at them the other day noticing every thread in that section was the same guy, with mostly the same parts. I couldnt find an auction that was even still available.

you can also do that for the "new posts" feature. there's a way to select things to exclude.

It gives us traffic and google ranking, so they are there.
