    I just read the G&E rules which said no buying/selling/advertising allowed but how about trading?

    Methinks that bartering of any kind would fall under the G&E restrictions.

    Otherwise the forum would just turn into craigslist for gear. And who wants that?

    I guess I would want that. But still...

    Ya your probably right. I think some rules are more lenient then other. I almost started laughing when I read no advertising.

    It seems like offers are OK as long as they're within the context of another thread. That is, as long as you're not starting threads to sell individual pieces of gear. But if there is a long discussion about gear that you happen to be wanting to sell, it seems harmless to post that you have gloves/headgear/whatever for sale or for trade.

    At least this is what I've observed.

    Sherdog should open up a page under gear discussion and gear review (Buy,Sell,Swap). That way those who would be bothered by it would not have to see it unless they click on that page and those who want to wouldn't be bothering anyone.

    I think the issue is that they don't want to have to moderate that kind of stuff
