I was punished for posting in the shotgun and riffle forums for buying a shotgun and a rifle then a moderator moved the rifle one into the over 200 dollar trade would have been nice to ask a question I was trading or paying cash depending on what the person wanted now I can't reply to others should only be a 24 hour ban but still an awful way to handle it I could have edited the post and removed the part about a trade for electronics makes more sense or post on my topic saying please clarify or post gets moved deleted

You should be punished for horrible grammar AND punctuation (or lack thereof)

Trading a cell phone for a firearm does not belong in the firearm section, it belongs in the Trading Nonfirearm items for firearms. Your post was moved to the correct location, as you had no firearm to trade.

Pretty much sums it up, 99% of the members never see or hear from us because they do.
I am noticing that some are looking for loopholes in the rules and act accordingly siting "there isn't a rule that say's I can't".
Common sense plays a big role here. Spamming, Flooding the Shout Box etc inconveniencing other members and are also discouraged and arguing with a Moderator that "it isn't in the rules" is really a no brainer.

For those who still don't know who the mods are, a recent change lists all of the moderators on the very bottom of the forum pages.

Scroll down and you will see them and can click on one to communicated with him if you desire.

Here are a couple of thoughts - if you have been given a time out or ban, READ THE RULES AND FOLLOW THEM. Also - the Mods, who are volunteers, are human too, so politely asking for something a couple of times is better then sounding annoyed or angry that an issue was not fixed quickly enough for you. If you just seem to keep getting in SB trouble, but want to use the site - you can turn it off....problem solved. If you treat everyone with dignity and respect you will be treated likewise.

If you'll have me, I'd like to come back home. I'll understand if the answer is no.

Just got a message on the Sell that I had no permission to post ?
I did get in trouble once when I thought my ad was gone and reposted(turned out I had initially posted in another area!).
My bad. But I thought I was cool now.

Your account has no restrictions. You will get that message if you try to bump and ad in less than 24 hrs.
