    Here is why we insist on photos of the item for sale:

    1) Security: It is rare but occasionally we get a scammer like that bloke from Manc flogging an expensive amp, he had pinched the picture off the interweb and it showed that the amp was in America not Gunchester.

    2) People like looking at pictures of kit. Even if they have no intention or no means to buy it. Or do you think people buy hi-fi mags to read all the waffle?

    3) You have about ten times (made up stat) more chance of selling it if there is a picture of it. [Unless it looks crap in which case ask less money for it]

    4) It helps sift out the lazy-arsed fuckers, who use the forum selfishly, simply for their personal financial gain or otherwise, whilst expending the minimum of effort and giving nothing in return. If that's you, feck off, you're not welcome. We can't abide parasites!

    5) That's just how it is here. We *insist* on pictures accompanying ALL adverts posted. If you don't like that, then use somewhere else to sell your stuff, where no doubt you'll either be charged for the privilege and/or forced to make a sizeable number of posts, before being allowed access to the required area...

    Yes, on AoS, you've never had it so good!

    Arf... Replace "want' for 'need', for greater accuracy!

    Costs a fortune to run this place though. Luckily it's all paid for just from the adverts for Russian brides. The trade pay too but we get together once a year, get drunk, and burn all the trade fees a bit like the KLF did.

    We did, gave you a bell but you were on your yacht off Mauritius partying with supermodels at the time and you told me to feck off and stop bothering you on holiday.

    Surprised you don't remember that.

    Indeed. Apparently, these social-climbing Russian bints can be rather costly too [albeit that any expenditure is partially offset from Nectar points accrued], and are on the lookout for 'comfortably off', bald old blokes from the UK, preferably with anger-management issues and a penchant for being 'mothered'.
