just a thought: Why are we allowing people to spit "their side" of the story online, "after approval" by the mods about a trade or sale gone bad? It gives serious damage to the other party's reputation if it is a genuine misunderstanding (cause really, who reads those threads all the way 'till the end?) and it gives an "unfair" public trial on a private agreement? I think that instead of all the threads being started, the "offenders" or related parties their status should be altered too "Trade Claim Pending" or similar. And then somekind of database with brief details about the claims pending can re-assure the other members having a possible sale/trade ... Just an idea !
