Yeah, usually I'd say just don't post 'em. If you know of a local/regional forum for your area, then maybe put it there if the people there are okay with it, but otherwise, I'd keep it quiet. Most people here already check CL religiously for deals, so most people will already know it's up there. If they aren't checking, then (IMO) they don't deserve to know about the good deals. I know I'd be pretty pissed if I saw something I really wanted, but I had to work (etc) and couldn't get there until later, and it got snagged by someone who wasn't watching but who saw a post on here about it. It can also drive prices up, since the more people who know about it, the more people will call the person who made the ad. If a guy's trying to sell a mint Magnum for $200 and gets 75 calls about it from people hundreds of miles away, and they're all offering more than he's asking, chances are pretty good that he'll wise up and raise the price.
