Hello all,

I've been posting on forums all my life as I transition from vehicle to vehicle. I'm new to the Mustang world and joined a couple mustang forums.
Yesterday was my first night on this forum. I made a "For Sale" and respectfully followed all the rules and made a quality posting loaded with information.
Here's what it looked like:

Selling these very high quality wheels.
15x7.5 ET25
I have a set of brand new Hankook 205 60 15 tires on them, but am willing to sell wheels separately.
Wheels are in MINT condition. No curb rash at all.
These are authentic made in Germany Ronal LS wheels.
Willing to ship at buyers expense. Can meet up in Metro Detroit area or South Western Ontario.
Asking $900 for wheels and tires.
Asking $600 for wheels alone.
I also had three photos of the wheels to go along with the description.
I immediately got a reply from a mod stating:

Post city/state per instructions
I replied the following:

Moments later, my entire post is deleted by this moderator.

I mean, perhaps some confusion can arise. Maybe some individuals may assume I'm in Arizona, but only willing to meet up in the Detroit/Windsor area?

My theory: Buddy didn't read my post. Made a comment telling me to do something. I point out that I already did it. Embarrassed, he deletes the post.
Everybody makes mistakes. It's those who can own up to them, that will prosper.

Thanks everybody.

I've reviewed the thread in question and I see that the moderator followed simple instructions.

If you do not agree, you should have begun by bringing your concerns directly to that moderator. I know him, he's a good guy and push over. He did however, read your post carefully.

We have free classifieds here and no post requirements to use them. What we do insist upon is that the simple instruction on the top of the screen in those forums are followed. The requirements are very basic but serve a specific purpose.

Thanks,

this is not a city or state. The rules are pretty simple, even I can follow them.
no I am not embarrassed as you suggested in a pm.

So it's because I wrote Metro-Detroit, rather than just Detroit, Michigan?
Wow.
I mean even the craigslist for Detroit is called detroit metro.

The reason I specify Metro Detroit and SW Ontario is because I travel across the US-CAN border frequently, and want to make a point that I am happy to meet up for a sale in either countries in the specified locations.
I thought my post was being overly anal and specific; clearly I was wrong.

I'll share another secret about this particular moderator. He makes those posts indicating what things are missing to prevent me from nuking them on sight.

He's the "good" cop. LoL

I look for the required components and generally nuke them on the spot if of one of those components is missing.
