What the anteater is this?

I'm new, but quickly growing tired of posts that contain absolutely no useful information.

Add some meat to your advice businessbroker:
How do you go about finding out a realistic price?
How do you know its the 'wrong buyer'?
Not being prepared for what?

Hi AG

You make me laugh. I was the bad cop on here until you showed up, Laughing

I too get tired of the pointless postings. The guys are too soft sometimes, in my not very humble opinion. They need a woman like me to do the zapping.

Seriously, if we can keep the rubbish down - we're trying - this is a really great forum.

We've had lots of good members join in recently. Let's keep it that way. Cool

(I'll probably get fired as a site admin now for saying that, but I've never been one to hold back and not say what I think.) Smile

OK, please don't post gobbledygook on here.

What does your posting mean?

Why don't you post something that adds to the thread? You seem to have plenty to say without actually saying anything.

Or you could go and introduce yourself and tell us what it is you do in India so we can get to know you better.

See the Intro forum at the top where people are requested to introduce themselves before posting anywhere.

I won't be offended if you post something interesting and/or useful. So far you've posted fluff like "I agree". You've not introduced yourself. You're building up a post count by posting what doesn't amount to much more than nonsense.

If you're trying to up your post count to get sig links - forget it.

You have gone to the extent of making your own conclusions for no reason... I am new to these things and I genuinely don't have much to share..rather I am here to gain from people like you who are a little too experienced........

Well, go and introduce yourself. Tell us who you are and what you want to achieve, That would be a better way to start instead of posting fluff agreeing with people all over the place.

Yes, I am drawing conclusions, but not for no reason. I have been a forum site admin for over a decade (not here) and I've seen every trick in the book.

If you genuinely want to benefit from being a member of this community, then all you have to do is to introduce yourself and join in with the discussions. It's a great community which can offer a lot of help. You'll gain nothing by alienating the other members.
