Is there anything on Marketplace on Facebook that's not nicked or dodgy?

Since eBay started cracking down on people using them as a free classified ad, it does seem to have become THE place for the rougher end of the ag machinery trade.

Some of the sale groups are better than others. The Shropshire Farmers, Contractors and Smallholders group is not bad. Despite being horsey, the main Admin has zero tolerance for ponies and pikeys and as a result it doesn't get deluged with saddles, sofas, stolen power tools and chancers after shooting or metal detecting.

Hellif there isn't some crap for sale sometimes though. If I was to set up such a group I'd be less concerned with the general obsessions about price and location, and more on keeping out the clowns trying to flog coils of 2nd hand barbed wire and twisted ring feeders to other smallholders.
