Replies should stay on, but with a couple of rules
1) No "i've sent ya a PM" posts. There's already a rule about this and it should be enforced. I say there should be a 3 day ban for each occurrence.
2) No replies to month old requests; those that do should be banned for 3 days
3) Other hosts should not/can not comment on another hosts offer, other than to clarify the offer(ie, no flaming/bashing)
WHT has got to become stricter, only then will n00bies learn and the community become a better place overall...
