 just  a  query...isnt  it  time  tht  it  changed  ?  ......or  is  it  tht  lot  of  people  involved  in  here  are  into  commercial  venture...and  don't  want  the  prices  to  reach  the  hobbyist?...welll  i  doubt....reason  it  out  guys....

 ADMIN:  Rohan,  Below  is  what  you  posted  in  your  intro  on  IAH.  Could  you  initiate  price  discussions  between  the  two  and  update  us  now.  We  have  quite  a  few  LFS  guys  on  IAH  too.
 
 'and  almost  being  beaten  up  by  the  local  LFS  guy  for  passing  his  lane  and  not  buyin  fishes  from  him  and  buying  it  from  the  neighboring  shop'.  ROFL

 Though  I  respect  the  decision  of  the  Forum  Admins,   I  think  that  open  price  discussion  should  be  allowed  and  also  when  someone  is  posting  an  item  for  sale  they  should  post  the  price.  This  way  the  will  sell  on  first  come  first  serve  basis  and  not  to  the  highest  bidder.  Any  way  buying  and  selling  is  a  perk.

 Rohan,
 
 Seems  this  price  discussion  topic  just  sprouts  after  periodic  interval  here.
 IAH  Admins  had  already  foreseen  dangers  of  such  topics  while  drafting  forum  rules.  We  do  not  really  need  topics  featuring  price  discussion,  illegal  livestock  import  from  abroad,  dealing  with  banned  goods  like  live  rock  etc.  to  be  discussed  again  &  again.
 
 Couple  of  months  back,  I  was  talking  with  Madan  (IAH  Admin)  over  phone  on  one  such  issue  where  one  poster  was  persistently  offering  "open  tips"  about  how  to  go  about  illegal  import  of  livestock.  Despite  repetitive  reminders,  this  fellow  didn't  seem  to  respect  or  heed  to  repeated  warnings  by  Admin.  Madan  advised  such  topics  should  not  be  allowed  to  blossom  on  IAH  by  any  means.  Common  hobbyist  would  always  favor  open  price  discussion  and  would  always  want  this  portal  to  be  treated  as  a  rules-free  blog  with  no  strings  attached.
 
 All  of  us  are  part  of  this  community  and  we  must  honor  its  board  rules.
 Let  us  not  question  why  these  rules  &  suggest  its  irrational  modification,  which  is  unlikely  to  happen.
 However,  there  may  be  some  exceptions  where  certain  rule  need  some  valid  amendment.  eg.  Commercial  posting  rule  was  changed  for  LFS  announcements  after  IAH  homepage  started  getting  flooded  by  their  advertisements  on  a  daily  basis.  Rule  was  amended  allowing  them  to  post  only  on  Sundays,  also  such  commercial  topics  do  not  feature  on  homepage  Topic  list  (except  scrolling  on  Advanced  Forum  ticker  &  Sponsored  Forum)
 
 Hope  this  clarifies.
 Amen!
