I thought we were restricted admins? Or is the Marketplace a free for all? And to the admin that shut down my ill thought of thread to sell Demonoid.Me invitations in the Newbie thread after 10 mins of it's creation, please look at http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=20145.0 which y'all have let run the whole darn day.

About the demonoid topics I would guess at a couple of reasons:
1) The newbie forum is more closely moderated than the rest
2) A matter of wording. You said you were selling invites, which is against their TOS while the other guy is giving away invites in response to a donation. It's practically the same thing, but the later could arguably be allowed.

Semantics, at the end of the day the final result is him making a profit and that is the definition of a sale which is against their TOS. What I did is none the better but leaving that thread open sends the wrong message to users. To say it is a matter of grammar chips away the validity of the action of closing my thread and the integrity of the admin who did it.
