I would like to give my opinion about the option to blog following people's classified ads.
In regular classifieds, a seller posts an ad and a potential buyer contacts the seller if they have interest. In my last post, and I should stress 'last,' two people chose to blog under my post about what a scoundrel I was for trying to sell a t.v. at 50% of what was paid for it after seven months of use.
Just prior to posting, I watched the ugly bickering between Busan_Jeff who was selling his Daelim motorcycle for the normal price of 500,000 Won and joshuabeagle immediately told him, "Oh, you can't ask for more than 400,000 Won for that bike. I have no interest in it but I'll give you 250,000."
If joshuabeagle had no interest, why was he allowed to influence other potential buyers by attaching his post to Busan_Jeff's post?
I think KoreaBridge offers a great service and has a multitude of well put together components. I will continue to use and appreciate the photos, calendars, videos, and possibly even for purchasing items. I will not post anything more for sale.
For reference, I posted a 50" Plasma T.V. that my friend bought for 1,690,000 Won, in July. (He was given some glassware as his discount.) In the fall, the price of that t.v. dropped to 1,350,000 Won. I posted his t.v. at 900,000 Won (roughly 53% of what my friend paid and 67% of the current brand new price).
Following my post, F-2 Teacher attached his comments that you can walk into a store and say "How much-e?" and they will sell you the 1,350,000 t.v. for 950,000 Won. I know that F-2 Teacher has too much time on his/her hands but after asking "Olma-yeyo?" to the clerk, in July, my friend was told 1,690,000 Won. My friend heard the price and decided to buy it. Maybe he should have dragged his knuckles on the floor and disrespectfully said, "How much-e?"
Not to be outdone, Solid Champ attached his comments about how 'unreasonable' people are becoming on KoreaBridge because they are attempting to sell their items for 'near their purchase price.' I know Solid Champ doesn't have a large I.Q. because 53% of the purchase price is obviously not 'near the purchase price' and I checked on his other comments about "Somebody just got told..." but why do you allow people like him/her to make your site such an unfriendly place?
My ultimate decision, I will keep the t.v. and give my friend 1,000,000 Won. The t.v.'s certainly worth it, I just don't like big screens, or I would have bought it from him in the first place. I won't post things for sale on your site, anymore, because unless I'm willing to give things away, I will be brow beaten.
I would love to see you remove the blogging ability after people's classifieds. If not, is it possible to remove these bloggers' posts? Even if you don't have the time or energy to monitor these people, those people that are posting could do it themselves, if they had to.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
