Is GolfWRX even relevant anymore?

Just suspended for 7 days for innocently listing an uncut shaft after years of nothing but good business.  It should've been pretty obvious I wasn't flipping knockoff shafts or anything after hundreds of positive BST transactions (my own personal equipment).  Does anyone know why that rule exists in the first place?

 

... It seems like it is always the few that ruin it for the many. Bombsquad was created after a GO member sold shafts and club heads for profit. If you want to sell for a profit then you have to become a sponsor which just seems fair. Just look here and every now and then someone with ONE post is asking questions about or touting a given product nobody has heard of taking advantage of free advertising. Of course that rules out us regular folk that have an uncut new shaft and wants to sell it to just get our $ back or even take a small loss. I bought 2 new Matrix X Flex shafts for my son and he only wanted one of them so I have a new uncut X Flex shaft I need to sell. That said it is very rare to have a brand new golf equipment item and want to sell it, but if I do WRX won't be the place I list it.

Not saying you should do this, but i have gotten around the BST rules on WRX regarding uncut shafts before. I sanded 1/4" of the tip and I butt cut the shaft by 1/2".

... As long as you are not running a business out of the classified I think that is an excellent idea!

how is that getting around the rules? it’s a cut shaft.

that’s like saying you got around paying your taxes by paying your taxes.

I know this thread has been dead for a while, but I'd just like to say that I am a new convert to MGS from GolfWrx.  

For years, I occasionally dabbled on this site, but stayed on GolfWrx because I first joined there back around 2008 or so and was too lazy to leave.  Gradually, things changed there, and long time members & posters started to disappear.  For 13 years, my GolfWrx reputation and feedback was spotless.

At the end of 2021, I was suspended for "supposedly" being a racist, after referring to Covid as The W*h@n Flu.  I could swear that even the Media referred to Covid that way in the beginning.  I was suspended from entering the GolfWrx site for 30 days and cannot post for 90 days. That was pretty severe for a first "offense".

It really blew my mind, as I had never been called a racist by anyone, much less a golf site. I never had a Twitter, Instagram, FaceBook or YouTube account.  My only internet blog activity was on GolfWrx's site and now they call me a racist.

I'm sorry to see that others have had their share of trouble with GolfWrx.

I hope that sharing my GolfWrx experience with MGS does not get me suspended.
