I tend to take a bit more of a trusting approach. For example, I think
it was "Viagra Man" who posted that sale. Without any further
information, I wouldn't give it a second thought. No sale. If I'd had
the $250, though, I would have bought it from him. He's been around for
a little while, and seems straightforward enough.

Obviously, that's no guarantee, since *anyone* can put "Viagra Man" in
their nickname and pretend to be him. But people I've seen post would
get that additional consideration.

"A thing moderately good is not so good
as it ought to be. Moderation in temper
is always a virtue, but moderation in
principle is always a vice."
