***** or **** posts on sale threads.

from urban dictionary:

*****

''Abbreviated form of "Good luck with that s*it." Usually said to someone trying to accomplish the impossible.''

****

''Good Luck With Sale. Means that an item posted for sale is overpriced, so you'll need some good luck to sell it. Used on forums where you aren't allowed to criticize ads.''


the problem is that some people think that they do good on a sale thread when post ''**** or *****'' but this has the opposite meaning which is ''you never gonna sale this on that price so you need all the luck you can get''

Also it's not good for sellers who see a reply, get all excited it may be the sale they are looking for, only to see ***** posted by 3 to 4 people!

Unfortunately for Urban Dictionary, it's not always correct...

***** doesn't mean what UD says it means



Nevertheless posting "****" or "*****" on For Sale threads is against the rules unless the person is genuinely interested in purchasing.

People should only post in a For Sale or Wanted threads if they are interested in the item etc. Typing **** or ***** isn't helpful and most of the time unnecessary. If you see it then report it and we will remove it.
