No thanks, I don't buy from spammers. > What's the problem with this person posting a saab part for sale? Well, the first problem is he's some random guy wandering in, contributing nothing to the group, and exploiting it for free advertising. I don't think we want this to be "buy whatever car-related retail" group, but maybe I'm wrong. It'd be different if it was some guy selling his own parts rather than running a business, and then (the old, old tactic) of "Hi, here's the info, can I post it?" knowing damn well that once he asks, it's already posted. > Is posting an eBay listing also considered spamming? From an individual, I don't think it is. If it's "Bob's car-o-rama, come and see our crap", then yes. > They only posted to the autos.saab group. Targeted spam doesn't make it less spammy.
