    Yeah, and......

    Let me rephrase for the slower ones of the group.

    "I have an Ursa mini EF 4.6k body + EVF. On ebay @ $6000 starting bid." Would that get removed from the FS thread here?

    IF I posted it just below MSRP would that allow it to stay in the thread or would a mod still consider that profiteering? You following loch.....
    Because, it would only take a few bids to push it above MSRP.
    Basically the forum rules state that if we are selling anything it must be at a LOSS to the seller. Yeah, thats not going to happen with a brand new camera.
    At this point I could really care less if it gets posted here. But I think some clarification is due.

    It's not about the price it's about running your mouth. Try and make it whatever you think it is but you salted your own game.

    It's pretty clear.

    It says in the guidelines...

    "Better yet…if you happened to get your hands on one of the first versions of whatever BMC camera and want to sell it for a profit, take it to eBay. It's your right to sell it for whatever price you want, but there's a certain community spirit we want to encourage here, and profiteering has no place in that community."

    Ebay auctions are allowed, but not when it's a new camera. What's so hard to accept about that ? You could have sold it here for what you paid for it if you wanted. Ebay also has a BUY IT NOW function so you also don't have to use the auction function either.
