A site like Audiogon - or EBay - which profits from sales does not want people making side deals. Data banks/servers cost money to use/set up. Side deals are profits lost.
Why are ????????
Why are all social media sites so uptight? If I want a person to have my info it is ultimately my call, not some scat sitting in the power trip chair.

Grizz the honky you love to hate.
People with sensitivity issues should choose what they don't want to hear. Sites would rather cater to the few instead of hearing the voice of everyone. I will compare IQ with any of your big brains. But remember I am a lowly wire puller and twister of wire nuts, Chad Braden is on FB for an audio chat.
@jasonbourne52 is correct and I'm ok with this policy. However, there could be an issue when purchasing a big ticket item. If I was interested in a $30,000 pair of speakers, for example, i would like to speak to the seller. It's easy to get the phone number from a dealer, but impossible from a private seller. We're only privy to a phone # after the transaction is complete.
