Parts Ads ?

First off I am not very tech savvy to be sure but is it possible with a software change to limit the amount of parts ads one person can post at any one time? Seems to be more prevalent than ever before that a dues paying member runs single ad after ad, one part per ad with a run of 12-15 or more. Have seen a few times with as many as 29 parts ads on a single page of 35 thread lines. Seems to be totally excessive and does not allow for other members to post ads having even a bit of a chance to be read. There is a limit of 5 pics per post, can such a 5 lines of parts ads be implemented? Multiple parts can be listed to each ad but only a total of 5 separate at one time.

Again, I am not tech savvy but weren't we all taught to share things way back in childhood and school with consideration to others?

That's spamming and should be reported. We are short staffed at this time and could use y'all pointing stuff out 🙃

Re: Parts Ads ?

Me first mentality, a big pet peeve of mine. I have made comment on this before. I sent one member a PM, others in a post. I wasn't even sure it was any sort of violation. I just know it's pure inconsideration, lack of regard for others. At a family gathering I always wait to get in line for food. My ex-wife's cousin Cindy was always first... always! Says a lot about a person (oink oink). Like my dad always said, "I wouldn't want to be in a bomb shelter with that guy"*. He'd talk about WWII in the fox holes living on rations. One guy would gobble his all up, then bug others to share theirs.

* My thoughts on this after getting his meaning, and please don't judge me by this, are "take him out the first night"
"BUILDING A BETTER WAY TO SERVE THE USA"......67/72......"The New Breed" GMC

'67 C1500 Wideside Super Custom SWB: 327/M22/3.42 posi..........'The 67' (project)
'72 K2500 Wideside Sierra Custom Camper: 350/TH350/4.10 Power-Lok...'The 72' (rolling)
