Seems to me the way to do this (and I think this is 78-L practice now) is to
require that "for sale" posts be limited, at least for dealers and the like,
links to either eBay (etc.) listings or dedicated web sites. If it's a case
a single individual/institution trying to sell a single item (or group of
items)which might be of interest to the list readership, I see nothing
however, if it is a dealer or even someone who sells on a regular basis,
list postings don't seem correct (and mass-mailings to list subscribers even
less so, since that approaches SPAM).
My opinions only...
