DonBlack: I sort-of figured that is what happened with your post. I was going to ask the question before I saw your post.
My other guess is that people are trying to reach a "select" group of buyers. An "ad" in the Swap Meet forum may reach a more people and increase the chances of making a sale. This is why I'm puzzled by the posts here.
