Nope, not going with that. I have a soap from OSP not to be made for " a long time" i have not even thought about profiting from it. I would rather PIF than profit.
Put your money where your mouth is then and let's see some of your unobtainable soaps in a PIF

I am gobsmacked where wet shaving community is going towards. When I started we all were Gentlemans and we did not seek profit. We supported and educated each other.

Years ago there was member SMF whom seek profit. Community disappoved of his methods and he was asked to leave forum.

I truly believe this is not eBay or other for profit site. All prices should be within the reason. Gentleman to Gentleman.if we fail who we are them if not a .......

Let' take example from other place and remind profiteers that WE ARE GENTLEMAN CLUB AND SUCH SHOULD BEHAVE ACCORDINGLY.


This new fashion of profiting and raffles make me to withdrawn from shaving world slowly.
To sum up, while BST rules were good in past maybe is time to rethink them as we getting more and more non gentleman's?

Disagree. The forum should not change their rules because some people's noses got pushed out by a high price in the BST.

There are loads of BST offerings that I disagree with the prices on, but I don't comment on them.

plenty of antique forums where people pick things up in a charity shop for next to nothing and sell it on for thousands if you think it's gentlemanly to let them have it for what you paid then that's great but I would just call it stupid

Edit: I get the feeling @globalm would like this fiasco to die out now, and the mods already make their feelings clear re. "How much out is ok?" In the rules, so im going to bow out gracefully but @jimmyc i have enjoyed the debate tonight. Thank you sir ;)

The users of the site as a collective decide on the price. as in not buying if slightly too high. to comments on the post if it is taking the mickey (pish) that is the way i think it should go. I also think the rule of no off topic comments in BST threads is fine as long as it is ok to open a thread commenting on said BST thread

Not price related, but may I suggest to introduce a rule all the items for sale from a member to be combined in only one single topic.
Not really a restriction as they can still list as many thing as they want.
I have seen so many times the sub forum flooded with topics from one single member. Check the BST to see what I mean.

You must create opportunity to equally display all members who BST at any moment.
