I have a few bottles of bourbon I would like to part with and would love to finally post. I would much rather deal with berserker folks than wine spectator. I know people monitor both but anyone who has spent time reading knows this would be the preferred community to make a deal in. If an exception could be made I would appreciate it but certainly respect your rules. Thanks
25 posts is a reallllly low bar if you engage at all.. it's like Charlie in 12 mins.. ;)
You have an additional/unneccessary 1 in there.
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Haha but he’s a lawyer so he will tell you it took 12 mins and thus a billing unit. ;)

Is this an OK place to discuss commerce corner "practices" ? Please move this if there's a better place ...

Why do some edit out most or all of their posts after the transaction has been completed ? I think we're losing some history that might be useful. Seeing what a bottle has sold for (or at least been offered at) would probably be helpful to someone who's considering offering a similar bottle.

Adding "SOLD", as suggested in the 1st post, doesn't stop this ?

I posted a request to buy something, then said I'd gotten what I needed, and still got PMs for months about it.

The rules say not to post any comments about a listing but if someone has a listing on CC and is a NON-PAYER (myself and someone else) should/can we post a note in that listing about issues with the seller?
