    In the past, postings for Group Buys were not allowed, I'm guessing maybe because you didn't want to get involved in any potential legal issues and/or disputes between dealers/manufacturers and their territories and maybe because you didn't want to away give free advertising to a dealer who was not a supporter of this forum. I can understand and respect that. However, would it be permissable to post a Group Buy in the following manner?
    For example:
    Anyone who wants to participate in a group buy for equipment 'xyz' from a local dealer and who lives in area 'abc' please contact me at [email protected]
    The dealer name will not be posted and because only folks who live in the area can participate, the dealer never has to violate his territory agreement so you won't get complaints from other dealers. How would you guys feel about that or is there some other issue I'm not aware of?

    I'm sorry, but we can't do this.

    This will undoubtably open up a can of worms
    here as once other members see this being done
    then everyone will want to do it.

    We really want to avoid any group buys being
    run by the membership.
