Are there any plans for a For Sale or Trade subforum here?

This question was asked awhile ago by Nathalie here (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/threads/317-Items-for-sale-forum?highlight=sale).

I quote the answer from Topsy:
Thanks SO much for the suggestion. It's definitely something I've looked into, but finally decided against - - at least for now. There are so many "ISSUES" surrounding buy-and-sell forums. Legal issues, especially. Like if someone purchases something via a site , and is dissatisfied, even if it is a totally private sale between two parties, the site can still be held liable. So for now, I'm shying away from that so we can stay focused on secular homeschooling. Like you said, though, there are plenty of sites out there for buying/selling. I personally like the HomeschoolClassifieds.com site.

That's too bad, it was a good idea.

It IS a good idea and I hope she reconsiders at some point.
I realize that there are other options for buying/selling that are out there, but none that caters to the secular community. It would be nice to buy/sell and know that someone can tell you definitively what the religious status of a product is.
