Is acting as a shill by bumping For Sale items at Christmas time an ethical no-no? Or, at a magic Café, should we be expecting artifice and subterfuge to be served with the eggs benedict?

I've always been amazed at the "bumping" that is allowed, many times the seller simply writing "bump." The rules are clearly stated:

""Bumping", which includes "still available" or any post to simply bring the topic to the topic of the list is not allowed. This uses up vauluable bandwidth and causes newer postings by other members to be driven farther down in the forum which isn't fair to them. Post that use "bumping" to bring the topic to the top of the list will be deleted, no questions asked."

This seems to be an action that is tolerated, although at this time of year I agree it can be a bit more transparent.

Phht. Please. Posters here on all subsections of the forum break the rules constantly with utter impunity.

Either there ARE no moderators, or they simply don't care.

The site is (with a few exceptions) very little more than an advertising forum anyway.

I flag posts every single time I see the word "bump." I've called people out in public before and linked to the rules, which is somewhat counter productive as it just bumped the thread again...plus I was scolded for doing so, so I just stuck to reporting the posts and hoping it would be dealt with that way. I personally think it's extremely rude to just write "bump" to bring a post to the top. Essentially what that person is saying is "my post is more important than the others below it." Seems very inconsiderate to me.
