Rant threads should be allowed, no matter what anyone says...

Saves others from getting wrecked on this forum...
Except anyone who isn’t a member or didn’t see the rant thread for the week it was trending will never find it...and it won’t help them....vs if you leave negative feedback anyone can see it on their profile forever.

Rant threads help people feel better that they were wronged by validating with others, which I do understand just don’t think they truly help beyond the first week.

You don't believe Rant Threads help because you and your people keep deleting them...

Listen, @OakleyBoss you only have about 30 REALLY ACTIVE MEMBERS on this forum, and each of those members swim in the Classified Section every 30-40 minutes looking for deals...

IF a garbage, unmonitored member tries to ruin (scam) people on this forum via the Classifieds, the ACTIVE members would be all over it...IF there is an existing Rant Thread where that person is identified as being a gross seller, the active members will do the job you're supposed to be doing by protecting members...

We can link the Rant Thread in a For Sale Thread of a person that WE KNOW is trash - we can also save both older and newer members from getting wrecked, because we know this place better than you or anyone else...

let the most important and most active members help you turn this garbage forum around...

Why not link the Feedback that states the facts in your example? The rant threads just become witch hunts and more than half end up asking to be deleted or whatever because actually nothing was wrong. Have seen this story 100x over where everyone grabs their pitchforks accuses a member of scamming, only to find out that the guy was on vacation or away from his computer for a day, and the buyer who paid F&F (against the rules), started worrying because they expected an answer in an hour.

Also it averages about 600 various members who log in any given day, I think there may be 30 loud members who are very active and absolutely value their opinions along with every members, but letting them control what happens, or start witch hunts for whomever they deem "trash" is exactly the problems we have today.
