    Wait, Creating WTB thread is also bannable?? Wow that is indeed harsh. I think that is going to piss off a lot of buyers

    Read my post again.

    Members "used to be banned" for posting a WTB thread in the wrong section (presumably, according to that rule. I wasn't around here when it was posted in 2010). For as long as I've been a member here, I haven't heard of anyone actually getting banned for it, though. In fact, the few repeat offenders I've had to issue an infraction to for doing this knocked it off after the infraction.
