It's the spirit of it that counts, the suggested format merely being a recommendation.
And... I'm glad to see the enthusiasm for the marketplace. The intent was not to start a discussion on that here, though. Jim and Debs and other moderators are hard at work on this -- they may be asking for the help of those who really wanted this, so watch for a note by them (but it won't be in this thread ).
Other attempts at this type of activity on other forums have spun out of control, damaging the integrity of those forums. I'm sure this one will be managed much better, having had a chance to study why others have gone wrong.
The potential UPSIDE of the idea (SBIers providing non-business/marketing goods and services to other SBIers) was too good to say "no." Now we have to structure this to maximize interaction while eliminating the DOWNside potential. But enough about that...
Before Debs splits me off of my own thread...
Please keep THIS thread to the sig file policy and watch for a post by Debs and Jims about the SBIers' Marketplace. As I mentioned, they may be asking for a new moderator or two to help out with this.
All the best,
