New member in Toronto!

Just making a post so I can private message a seller. Kind of a dumb restriction if you ask me.

Kind of, but nothing's worse than PM spam from people trying to sell you fake purses!

Hope to see you around on the forum regardless

Well, it might seem like a dumb restriction to you; however spammers/scammers allowed in with no restrictions is much dumber and a threat to the membership. Also, simply making a post to give you access to members selling, would send an alarm. I only buy/sell to those that show interest in the site & post accordingly in the Forums.

Welcome, perhaps not the most auspicious of first posts I've seen.

From Toronto.... not the rest of Canada

Be easy on the the guy.
After all, he is not, strictly speaking, from Canada.
He's from Toronto, Canada's 'most important' city.
