Don;t worry about it... We all do...

However, this list is but one of 5 Shadowrun Related Mailing lists, all of
which are hosted at, and was set up through the owner of the
other lists, Mark Imbriaco. There has been a long standing rule of not
selling stuff on the list. This keeps itribe, the List Owners, and
everyone else from getting in trouble if something goes wrong with a sale
or a trade.

Agreed. There is nothing wrong with selling the cards. however, I doubt
you'll find many people interested in buying individual cards just yet.
Your best bet is to wait until a Scrye or Inquest (Preferably Inquest)
comes out with prices in there. that's usually the most impartial (well,
as far as that goes, anyways:)) method of pricing the cards.

Trading is most definately one of the key features of this list. However,
I think the points that were made were this: Once two people have agreed
upon trading, the discussion should them be taken private. I don;t really
need to no (nor may I want to see) mails that you are trading Loki and need
his home address and phone number, or whatever...

Basically, there's a point when it should cease to become Public Mail
(Which everything to the list is) and Should become private mail.

However, posting Trade lists and Want lists is more than find.

Also, There is no real problem with posting a message taht says "I'm
looking to sell off various Uncommons and Rares. Write me for a list".
That covers any problems the list might have.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
