Meh. Get bent. If you can't play by the rules, you can take your ball and go home. If you want to sell something here, put it in the classifieds - that's what they're there for. Duh.

Soliciting outside of the classifieds is verboten. Bad forum etiquette, more work for mods, and generally frowned upon. :2cents:
