    Because people were getting scammed and losing money.

    People would respond to a wanted thread with "iv got what you need, send me the money and ill post it"

    Unfortunately people were sending money and no items were being received.

    So for the good of the members a blanket ban was imposed.

    Because too many people were getting scammed.

    They would place wanted ad, a scammer would then say they had part, person would pay and never recieve the part.
