Yeah exactly as you said, doing that stuff on the BO boards is one thing...but now this can mess with COMC's reputation.
COMC has to seriously look at this, and maybe it should be that ads should only be placed for people who are serious about COMC. Maybe only sellers who pay the $50 monthly fee can place an ad, or have been a seller for X amount of months etc. I know there is a fine line here, but it is similar to building up yourself on Ebay etc. Beessports should obviously be banned from ever doing an ad again, but more should be done...maybe a suspension from selling for weeks, whatever it is, as this is as someone said...similar to bad ebay buyers not coming through on purchases.
