Default do the ebay / miata guy posts bug anyone else?

I wouldn't mind them in general except they flood my "new posts" results. And most of the stuff advertized is pretty much generic crap.

Can we just let the people who want to buy generic crap off ebay GO to ebay to do it?

can I get a hells yeah?

I don't like them myself either but who knows maybe Rick or Scot can have them scoure for better keywords so we don't end up with 20 posts on 17 inch rims wich only 3-4 of us would ever run.

I only see him on the normal screen or the portal. Putting him on ignore does not block out the threads he starts just the posts he makes in them. So that is useless.

Hey guys, sorry i didn't see this sooner. I thought i had added this but then noticed i didn't see the announcement.

READ THIS

That will help you exclude those sections from search features etc.

The miata guy has posted 5 lug 17" miata wheels now. It's already stupid to clutter up the forum with all these ads, but they could at least be something we *might* buy. If we need 40 ads for miata wheels, perhaps some 14-15-16 inch wheels? I also think "Miata Rims" should be changed to "Miata Wheels", seeing how that's what they actually are and this is miataturbo.net, not roadsterdriftyomx5.slide Turbo Head Units? Nothing much to say here. Perhaps "Miata Market Place" should be "Rice Yo Miataaaaaa"
