I would if I actually sold something. I've posted 5-10 ads there and always sold the item elsewhere.

Yes. I've sold and bought a bunch of parts through m.net classifieds, all at what I thought was a fair price.

If you post an ad, you have to click a button that says "I agree to pay". If you don't agree, don't post your ad. If you agree to pay, live up to your word.

If being honest is being a 'sucker' in your view, so be it.

Being honest? Go back to m.net you girl

Seriously, I have issues with paid classifieds when you have a pile of sponsors paying already. Call it a protest if you will.

So what if Gary has sponsors? I don't care if he's rich or poor or anywhere in between. Saying that you have no responsibility to be honest in life because of somebody else's income, eye color, or anything else is just making excuses for your own dishonesty.

Yeah, be honest. Go back to the playground and grow up

that ridiculas(not to the donation fund of a needy organization) giving some guy 10% of your money/parts/car.all because he used the name of a car in his website.espically the miata community.

Wow, I really don't care what you think. But thanks for taking the time to fill me in, it was really sweet of you.

I actually think my stance IS the moral one. Try and wrap your limited mind around that.

no, he has a point.

like it or not you're in his house and if you say you're going to do something you should. If you don't like it post it elsewhere.

to me he's asking for people to donate, not requiring it...this way he doesn't have to feel guilty for taking money
