    Default Sorry for being a rule breaker - great vintage polk speakers for great price

    Hello,

    I apologize for breaking the rules but I would rather have these speakers go to someone who truly appreciates them than anyone else and the prices are great.

    I don't have 25 posts yet and these speakers will be gone before I do. I don't know how else to make the polk forum aware of these?

    Polk RTA 12's? in near mint condition. Peerless tweeter. With original stands. $250. I love the sound of these speakers!

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ele/830356099.html

    Polk RTA-11T in MINT condition. $250. You guys know these things are bit bright. Just swap out the tweeter and you have the TL's.

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ele/830385056.html

    Again, please accept my apology for referring a sale in the discussion forum. I'm not trying to make big money here, just pass along some great speakers in great condition for a good deal.

    Hate me if you want to I guess.

    Amazing
    I don't hate you I just think you should go by the rules for they are in place for a real good reason and you probably know that. So that is screwed up and I am being nice about it. A member since July and only 4 posts. I am sure others will chime in too.

    Why would this forum make an exception for you? It hasn't in the past. Rules are put in place for a reason. See ya'.

    Default OK Polkie discount

    Again, I'm sorry for breaking the rules but how else am I supposed to offer my speakers to the members of the forum.

    Should I simply exclude everyone here from knowing about them? The people who may likely want them the most? And I'm letting them go for more than fair prices.

    If there is a better way I should I have handled please let me know. Is there some other section of this forum where I could have made members aware? I really thought I was doing a favor. At these prices the speakers will sell themsleves.

    Sorry to those I have offended - I have great respect for these type of forums.

    Someone mentioned a Polkie discount. I will let them go for $200 per pair to any of you guys. I think that's a sweet deal. Then maybe you will hate me less.

    I bought a pair of speakers last night and I have to get the $ back in my account before my fiancee sees it. C'mon I'm just trying to survive here!

    Then follow the rules. It's not like we are asking for an arm and a leg. Join in the fun and let this sale go. It's as simple as that.

    Become an active, participating member of the forum. After that, there is no issue with trying to sell. ;)

    Default Sorry guys - if you all agree I should not have posted then you are right

    Sorry guys,

    If there is such a consensus that I should not have posted then I should not have posted.

    I thought I was just doing a favor - breaking the rule with incredibly innocent intent. As an audiophile who longs for certain models of speakers I really wanted to get these in front of the forum members.

    My mistake.

    I would still would like to know if there is some other more acceptable way in which I could have let everyone here know that they exist and are available.

    People who try really, really, really hard to do favors for people they don't know are usually actually trying really, really, really hard to do themselves a favor.

    If you can't be trusted to respect a simple forum rule regarding selling, well...;)

    If you have something you want to sell, just get your post count up. What you post doesn't even need to contribute to the discussion.

    It's not a "consensus". It is a forum rule, which you apparently feel should not apply to you.

    No. You just wanted to make a quick sale to someone from a group you perceived to be highly interested in what you were trying to unload.

    Wow. Community rules are such an inconvenience aren't they? Good luck to anyone who choses to deal with you.

    I wish this sort of thing was grounds for instant and permanent banning.

    I really think it should be 200 posts and you had to meet at least one veteran polkie in person.

    Default No one is answering what I should have done to make the forum aware

    I'll apologize again for creating this post: I'm sorry.

    But still no one is answering my question about how I could convey the message in any other way to members of the forum. How should I have done it?

    Should I simply exclude everyone here? Those who would likely find the most joy in owning them?

    My intenet is purely innocent. Again, at these overly resonable rates I don't need the forum to sell them. I gain nothing by using it. I'm not hear to gain anything. I just wanted to let the people who really want them the most that they here to be had.

    I have no desire to argue, I just don't understand how this can be misconstrued as some attempt to use the forum in an illegitimate way.

    I'm just a little guy here who thought Polk lovers would appreciate the heads up on some great Polk gear for great rates.

    Based on the concensus of this thread I will not do it again. It just seems ridiculous that I will not be able to offer my SDA's to the members of this forum before everyone on Craiglist.

    Please accept my most humble appology. And please let me know what you would have done to let the forum know in a position like mine. Should I really have excluded everyone here?
