Let me start off by saying that I've seen some threads get out of hand and I can totally understand deleting abusive posts. Yeah, okay, posting competing offers in a seller's
thread is pretty obnoxious, but does
benefit the community by encouraging competitive pricing and/or by forcing the seller to defend their price (superior product, service or whatever). I don't see any problem with such posts in a buyer's
thread... It may be stepping on the toes of other users trying to sell their stuff, but again, it benefits the community and the thread owner in particular.
