On other forums where I am a member they blocked my email address. I could not send or receive PM's and post in certain sections until my required post count was reached. 

Anyway thanks for the positive replies.

The fifty post rule is essential. Takes time and effort to get to sell. So generally the members that stick around are genuine!

I'm pretty sure 99.5% of all trades done here have been on the up and up because of this rule!

+1...

Also this is a forum, not gumtree. I honestly believe if it was not for this rule that the for sale thread would be the overwhelming focus as members would join for the sole purpose of selling.  As result the general thread will dwindle, having lost a very effective way to encourage conversation.

IMO the average member does join to buy/sell, but then when given the time, sticks around because 50 post in they get to realise the value of the mountains of information available ... or maybe they just realise that they have just arrived at the cool table , because WE ARE JUST THAT AWESOME!! ;) ;)

Either way...  stranger +common interest + conversation = friend

Could not have put it in a better way totally agree.
Rules are put in place for a reason and should be abided by.

Or you are just taking advantage... and subsequently peeving off the wrong people ;). They WILL. SQUASH. YOU. LIKE. A. BUG.

Live and learn... and take your time... and actually chat a bit.  It won't take long.

PS: post in sales threads don't count/add up.
