I note that a very few posters are posting MANY want to sell posts for cell phones, ipods, ipads, etc, to the point that probably a lot of users will not check for Volvo-related items.
I suggest that Want to Sell posts be limited to things that ARE Volvo-related.

Indeed, the Classified categories...

http://forums.swedespeed.com/forumdisplay.php?5009-Classifieds

...are often abused by both "normal" users and spammers.

This category (Miscellaneous Classifieds)...

http://forums.swedespeed.com/forumdisplay.php?6-Miscellaneous-Classifieds

...has these guidelines: "Got something Volvo related to sell? Post it here. (No Commercial Posts Please)".

This category (Non-Car Related Classifieds)...

http://forums.swedespeed.com/forumdisplay.php?40-Non-Car-Related-Classifieds

...has these: "A place to list anything you might have to sell that is not Volvo related".

Ergo, if you had a WTS cell phone that is Volvo-specific (such a thing?) it would get posted in the Miscellaneous-Classifieds. If the phone were not Volvo-specific it would go in Non-Car Related Classifieds.

Rather than move threads to the "correct" Classified sub-forum I just delete/ban the spammers and let the legit threads run the course.

Some Mods will move "sold" threads to the Black Hole which preserves the thread but removes it from view by regular users.

I often run through the ads and add "Sold!" to the thread's title which allows regular users to continue to view the thread.

Wait - remind me - what was the question?
