Classified Prices?

Is anyone else a little annoyed with the recent classified listings without prices? It just seems to me that if you would like to sell an item you should have the decency to list an asking price, or use an auction site. Not have some ill-organized bidding option via pm only. I saw it wasn't in the classifieds rules, so I'm not trying to bash any sellers directly right now, it's just not the way I prefer to buy/sell things.

What does the rest of the site think? Should a price be required to post it for sale? Or am I on my own?

Agreed.
I like the ads with no price and where the person is all fired up saying NO LOW BALLERS!! DON'T OFFEND ME WITH SOME LOW BALL OFFER!!!
Oh and then they forget to list their location.
Hey dummy, them innernets is world wide. List your location.

If it doesn't list a price I skip it. Too much effort to bother trying to buy something from some hard to deal with clown.

Glad to know I'm not alone. I might have jumped on a couple recent listings if I had any idea what the price was, and my best guess is that they are only still available because of pm bidding or there are a lot of members in the same boat as me: just don't want to mess with it. It helps the buyer and the seller in most cases.

Any mods care to comment on this? Why prices are not required?

Ok...the Moderators and Admin have reviewed and decided there will be no rule to post prices but remember because there is a sticky you can as a seller be subject to Moderation meaning an infraction to track your activity or maybe deletion, I don't think that is going to happen but there will be no changes the Sticky I built was always there and if members want to buy from a member that does not post prices then it's up to you buying from a member selling...meaning they don't care about about rules or not reading a Sticky before starting a Thread thus may be a sign of some sort to be careful who you buy from. The recommendation from this site is 'Skip' those kind of threads, but personally not against "Make me an Offer Threads"
and Support them some other MODs may feel different, as many good members try to help out others(just be careful making it a price war thing or that will be Moderated as well)....nothing is changing other than a warning to sellers try to help out members when selling with details....thanks

Thanks bloo, that's exactly what I would expect. I know no one has the time to over-moderate the classifieds and hand out infractions everytime something is posted without a price, but a fair warning in the sticky should help.
