What we see on alot of other forums that have little/no rules for posting in the classifieds is that new members solely join to sell their stuff and nothing else, thus adding nothing to the forum. Also, alot of spam bots will target the classifieds sections on sites as they can add links (sometimes harmful) and people will click on them thinking they're images/sale links etc. The rules are in place to avoid this and others.
