do you know of anyone who wants to buy a wallstreet edition powerbook G3?

if you could inform me of anyone that would be really great.

thank you

sophie

It would be wise if you did NOT PM people asking them if they want to buy your Wallstreet or if they know anyone who does. The usual convention (and most polite route) is to wait for people to PM you...

No, I do not want to buy your Wallstreet, nor do I know anyone who does. I would appreciate it if you would refrain from directly PMing me in the future when you have something to sell.

Peace,
Drew

Actually, it is...

It does become others' business how you attempt to sell your computer when you start PM'ing them. I too have received a PM from sophierose14. I don't have anything personally against this person, but imagine if everyone who had something to sell started randomly PM'ing members of this forum. It would create a significant problem.

Perhaps an addition to the FS/WTB stickies that says no one should engage in PM spam?

As moderator, it's my business... and they are correct that you should not be spamming peoples' mailboxes with offers.
The correct procedure is to post it here, as you have now done, then wait for people to contact you.

Please read the posting guidelines for more information.

A good idea, but since this is the first time - as far as I know - that this has happened, I'm hoping it's a one-time deal. if not, then I'll most certainly add it.
