@morehousemark - @tdeluiz45 will not be coming back to these forums and is banned moving forward. Not only did he not take any of my several warnings seriously, but he then went on to create several additional accounts, including one with a username proclaiming their hate for me. As far as I have seen, he is unable to follow any set and clear guidelines, so his ban will continue.
Report items that are against our guidelines. If more unnecessary questions are posted to this thread, I will be locking it. You clearly know that clones are not allowed, so of course the plants and seeds aren't allowed either. Report the correct way, to the correct team.
I've said this before and I'll say it again. This conversation is over.
Its more than " just a few actors", at least here in Oregon it is. I constantly see pipes and bongs posted they are prohibited items, still see weed sold, and constantly asked if I accept weed for trades. I used to report them all the time but it seems to do no good. So, please don't downplay the issue like its few and far between when it is on a daily basis from countless people. To say its a few bad actors is about as far from accurate as you can get. Thanks
I'd like to know where I ever downplayed this. I simply stated that there is absolutely nothing I can personally do, aside from passing on feedback. This issue is not my fault, yet it seems like a bunch of you are blaming me for these posts being up. Our teams do everything possible to remove prohibited items. I NEVER said it was a "few bad actors" - I actually stated that with tens of millions of users logging on daily, do you really truly believe that ANY app would be able to stop prohibited items without them getting posted? How many prohibited items are posted across other buy/sell apps? Do you think this issue is unique to OfferUp? Humans will do whatever they want, and sometimes they want to do bad things. I wish there was more I could do to ensure that every human follows every rule, law, and guideline, but to think that all humans are out for good is just foolish, unfortunately.
Report any weed. Report people that ask to trade for weed. Report Report Report. That is all you can do.
Sorry, but reporting prohibited items in my experience has been a big waste of my time as the listings tend to be allowed to stay up. And it really REALLY bugs me that not only can an OfferUp customer end up wasting my time, but the COMPANY wastes my times as well by ignoring reported items. (And items I report are crystal clear that they are prohibited in the terms and conditions, NOT something open to interpretation that I feel is prohibited but turns out really isn't.)
