Default 1 hit wonders and how they are handled

Recently at Hookah Pro there have been alot of people showing up and trying to sell their products. We at Hookah Pro welcome legitimate vendors who familarize themselves with the rules and follows the proper steps. These recent folks show up and make 1 post offering their goods for sale. We consider this to be spam and it will be handled as such. We are not a billboard for anyone with a closet full of hookah related items or someone without a legitimate website to sell their goods. We at Hookah Pro watch out for the members of our community. If you see a person offering up items for sale and they aren't an established vendor, please report it to the Moderators. This type of behavior will not be tolerated.

What if they post in the trade area rather than the vendor introductions? What would you do when they do this? Will they be prosecuted the same way or will the members of the community be informed of the risk of illegitimacy of this mysterious person.

Yes, and it was quickly resolved ...

We had a one post wonder, from some Joe Schmo offering up his eBay items, with a single post to say, "Hey check out my stuff I am selling!" or something to that effect ...

Anyway, we are not going to allow this, and there is no need for some eBay schmo to be on here pushing wares and flooding the board with this kind of spam ...

As for "Official" vendors, they are handled differently, and the 1 post vendors are PMed the vendor rules and asked to introduce themselves and get involved in the community. Hope that all makes sense? This really pertains to the 1 post wonders that are eBay/craigslist type sellers.

Yes, +1, and definitely report questionable posts, so we can take care of them quickly ...

Cheers!
