    There is a new poster named TM ebay who just joined today and already has 125+ posts (even the G-man can't post that much in a day :lol:). Is this a new service at TM or is it a spammer? Links are to various horns and sellers so far as I can tell. I really don't see the point as there are thousands of horns on e-Bay and we all know about "the bay". Thought the e-Bay section was for members to post their horns for us to see and give us a heads up. If this is a new "service", then just ignore my lack of knowledge.

    Me neither. When you use the "what's new" feature and there is a buttload of postings...

    What it probably is, is a guy (I bet I know who) who gets a fraction of a cent on ebay referral links. Every time you click the link, the miscreant gets paid.

    When I saw a link to a Super Deluxe Tone Balanced turned into a lamp, I blocked him. It's easier than hunting someone down.

    I sent this message to the moderators. If anyone else has concerns, maybe they should do the same.

    I agree with this thread, which raises concerns about the "TM Ebay" user.

    I'm not sure if he is breaking any rules of the TM Classified section. But with 56 of the first 66 threads belonging to him, he's definitely pushed the limits.

    You would need to trace back the Ebay partner campaign ID to the person who owns it.

    thank you, but I am far too lazy to do this --- but I thought perhaps I could help "you peeps" out if TMebay continues to overpost. ROFL ROFL ROFL

    I also messages moderators, and reported a few of the posts as spam.

    Why can't people just do what they are supposed to do and not ruin every/anything for others?
