Since when is this the standard and acceptable for sale threads?

Reason: not needed

I mean really? Be creative.

But what if I really don't need it?

Edit: Wanted to edit my sale thread and realised I already did something creative with it.

Maybe it's just new guys thinking that everything has to be straight to the point with no fannying about?

Nope, used by new and "old" alike.
Mostly by some who sell on an often basis as well.

Most of the time it is really not needed as the real reason is:

"Bought it for a steal on eBucks or wherever and saw an opportunity to make a killer profit"

But no one will really put that as the reason for the sale, they'd rather say not needed and leave it at that to stay out of trouble...

Exactly my point, that's defying carb rules.

Do you really expect people to sell you things they still need?
No, but their goods which they have cherished for years and have upgraded, downgraded, crazy x or baby on the way.
Point is there is a trend which is being adopted and abused.

I'm just shooting from the hip here but everyday folk who respect carb don't use it and those that used it once or twice are caught in the crossfire, but their conscience should be clear.

This exact issue was previously queried by a mod in a thread before so it's not just me.

As pointed out, some rather state that than the actual truth which is grinding every last of my gears - my smack talk thread deal has really tested my patience with my fellow human today. Need rest.

What really grinds my gears is when I don't depress my clutch enough.

In cases where it's once a year or so, I don't know why people don't just specify something along those lines, as Carb allows for a "profit sale" once every 6 months.

Personally warranty with Amazon grinds my gears. No it doesn't they only give 30 days after which u must RMA with the manufacturer. To top it off its gonna cost you 1000 plus to return it and the price is usually listed at the same price as local stock. If not more.

Feel you Bru. But what tips me over the edge is when you skip through 3 pages of post only to see sold but they don't close the thread 😔😩 IF SOLD CLOSE the thread please.. 🙈

People turning right in the left lane around a circle and carry on like nothing has happened.
