I can almost agree, however, it is real hard to look through the classified when there are pages and pages of very obvious scam ads. Heck if you look at the home page right now there are 3 of them on the screen. The scam ads can be stopped. An IP block can be used. An ad could require that a screen name be at least a week old before it can be used. An ad could have a space for a required phone number or it won't post. The ads could be set up where only 1 member could flag it as scam and it would disappear. You know ith all the grammer police and other members that love to pick, those scammers wouldn't stand a chance. Any legitamate advertiser that would get deleted by accident would certainly voice on the regular forum or to the mods. It can be done. LASM just chooses not to deal with it. It's a shame too. I sold a boat here. I bought a boat here. I joined a great hunting club here. Bought some dogs here. Got some new members for my hunting club here. It has been a great asset to me, I guess thats why I complain so much about it going to the dogs the past few months. It didn't used to be so bad.
