Ahhh the Irony!

Just finding my way around here.

As a newbie, of course, the most interesting area would be the flea market- maybe I could get a great deal on new audio gear and I'd have something interesting to write about! But I need to write 100 posts before I'll qualify to shop there.

It seems a bit ironic, and that it might encourage folks like me to post unnecessarily, superfluously and redundantly just to get a 100 score. Am I alone in wondering about this?

    The Flea Market is for contributing members, not for newbies looking for a deal or to dump their gear. You may not like it, but that's the way it is.
