    I have been reading that some people have issues with others posting CL adds on the Oforum because maybe they are acting on that add and don't want others (like me who stumbled on something I can't afford) to add competition. But in the same respect I have also come to love this forum for the "hey look over here there is a a great deal" mentality and I want to support what I feel are the Oforums strongest attributes.... So... do I post this great listing? Do I tell people and possibly ruin someone else chances of making this happen? How do I determine if someone is already acting on this? I am an honorable person and would naturally take the backseat if I knew someone was working a deal but not everyone is like that... Any thoughts?

    Either way its going to lead to b!tching. I hate when I have a deal in place, someone posts a link, there's more interest or all the sudden he's getting all the offers and a good deal just becomes a buy. I would say find people in that area and pm. I'm constantly texting people in other areas and they also do the same for me

    You should keep it to your local deals. Don't live in Florida and post up deals from Texas. When I find great deals that I can not take up I talk to my local people first before putting it up on the forum.

    Yeah, I was thinking that too, look for people in the area I found this in. Not everyone has their location marked. But I agree with you Dallas, either way someone will be unsatisfied... that's why its a paradox. Id like to make someones day but don't want to ruin someone else's LOL....

    Yup. People complain that their deal is being messed up. Seller later on raises the price because of a lot of offers. What difference does it make? There are non OFers that are also looking at those deals.

    Just PM me those great deals :p

    Did you share them with the forum or just let them sit there?
