    I see what you mean there, but the ignore feature at least gives you a choice. You see that there is an ignored post in the thread, and if you think it might be one that's worth seeing, or someone else quotes it, you can always click to see it.
    I see how it could irk some people, especially the volume of sales going on, but I find it a good way of finding out about pens I may not be aware of.

I think people who are not genuinely part of the community shouldn't be given the privilege of merely using said community as a pool of buyers.

    Classified does need an overhaul - maybe a multicolumn format, and/or organisation by modern/vintage and manufacturer?

    Conversely, I have more pen info than I need, so it ends up being a pain in the ass.

    I read a lot of posts here that are about pens and I am pretty much unaware of sales posts except if I feel like looking into For Sale. Obviously some other people are having a totally different experience. And complaining about it.

    It's pretty simple: many people come to the site and the first thing they view is "What's New". Makes lots and lots of sense, rather than paging through all the individual forums, etc. OTOH, often the threads that pop up to the top and obliterate informational posts are the many sales posts. In other forums, they often allow certain sections to be exempted or excluded from such 'recent posts' filters, but we don't have that here. That's why some of us complain. It's justified, too.

    When it is not possible to ignore a thread you can always take the other approach, which often is more satisfying in the end.

    Which end?
