Default What is up with other forums?

I am trying to reply to people with items for sale on forums like m4carbine.net and ar15.com but I am always told I don't have permission, but I am registered? What am I missing?

Many forums require a minimum number of posts before you can use their classified sections. SOME forums only allow items to be posted for sale, but don't allow responses in those threads only PM's to the poster.

The "no reply" option is in use on one of the firearms forums i frequent; i understand it was to keep the classifieds short and uncluttered.

OR, they could be discriminating against Robotkind.

Excellent answer, Orange. That's the way it works on many forums I frequent.
