Try to keep to the following guidelines when posting on the price drop forums:
Guideline 1. (More info at this link: viewtopic.php?p=7036#p7036)
when discussing price drops, please keep the commentary to matters of fact and avoid hyperbole. Do not comment on possible hardship, etc., and in general, put your comments in a sympathetic light where possible.
For the lifespan of the bubble, and I think I speak for the majority of users here, we decried the spin & rhetoric that was associated with the bubble by the vested interests, those who cheerleaded the “boom”.
It is important now, that the 'pin users take a balanced approach to discussing the outcomes of the property boom / bust in this country and in doing this, contribute to building a real public consciousness of the risks and benefits of property. The best buffer that could possibly be created to prevent the financial pressures associated with boom / bust from repeating into the future.
We are not here to cheerlead the crash but rather to illuminate, to provide balanced discussion and to help prevent another property bubble from occurring in the future.
Guideline 2. (More info at this link: viewtopic.php?p=61808#p61808)
When you are posting a daft site and your link is huge, like 150 letters long etc…
you can find a much shorter link at the bottom of the daft ad where it says “Daft Property Shortcode”
Just click the link and copy the resulting web address from your browser.
Guideline 3. (More info at this link: viewtopic.php?p=305399#p305399)
Guideline 4. Organisation of the price drop forums

And that means having something more than I talked to such and such or I had a look at this house, that is not substantiated fact.
