Here’s a reason why the rules here should be enforced

The reason the rules are in place on these boards are to protect other members. I know that Facebook has become a bigger platform for reefers these days. But I say why look at the shit that happens there. All you see is scammers. In the past few months ive seen more and more of threads like the one about. Yes we here at SCR have had a few scammers but in my opinion as a community on these boards we try to take care of each other and we try to weed out the bad apples before scammers can do real damage to many people.

I say as the SoCal reefing community lets bring our business and our attention back to these boards.
Hey I’m even thinking about sponsoring again after seen all the crap that happens on Facebook.

Yup, scammers get burned at the stake pretty quick here at SCR. I enjoy the forums more than FB by far. They have way too much say what goes on in "private" groups. Hell you can't even ask "x" amount for your car without their approval. So many cars for $12432 on there because FB won't let them ask above a "fair" amount.

It would be cool if this was like it use to be, but I don’t see it happening. Too many ppl not interested in offering any help, but want to sell

Buying fishes that way is difficult....especially if the seller wants the money in advanced without looking at the fishes. I would pay more for fishes buying from LFS. That Fish store in Huntington Beach has great prices on fishes.
