To keep Lox's thread "on topic"..... In reference to this thread: http://vboards.stratics.com/uo-rares-collector/222779-2-chesapeake-em-event-items-bracelet-book.html Why? Because there is a guild-mate that is bidding on another guild-mates item, which inherently makes a lot of people weary? Or that people are trying to alert the members of the community that the two principles in this thread are, in fact, guild-mates? Or that some sales threads might contain questionable bidders or phantom bids and casual buyers might not know all the "back channel" identities of individuals that sell here? I have had two rather large sells threads in the last month without incident or troll, and want to keep it that way, but often see other selling threads that have PM bids or ICQ bids that I think are very questionable myself.... Since I am an everyday poster and avid seller/buyer here, I would like to know the reasons behind your statement as a casually involved, potential buyer. Please.
