User's rides does and don'ts

Egg Nog came up with a great idea to check the ownership of cars posted here. Since then only very rarely have people turned out to be fraudulous, yet the skeptic and foremost rude responses to new cars posted increase by the day.

Despite frequent warnings you don't seem to learn. This is the final warning.

Here are a few examples of what not to do:

Right. It's such a great idea to bounce around gaily and just treat some of these situations as jokes.

It isn't a joke though..

I'll admit I have done this sometimes myself, and I will put my hands up and admit to it..

I will not treat it as a joke.

btw I really don't see why this thread has to stay open. I reckon you should lock it WM before it goes completely off track.
