From the Guidelines:
The site must not be used to draw attention to online auctions under any circumstances (e.g. eBay): submissions relating to Auctions will be deleted.July 24, 2019 at 10:41 pm #115342
Az … I think you can offer the book in FOR SALE AND WANTED, but you have to set a price. I believe this is in harmony with the Guidelines.

That may well be, and the intentions of the poster thoroughly noble, selfless and public-spirited & all that, but “must not be used to draw attention to online auctions under any circumstances” is demonstrably absolutely final (as in, “the editor’s [or webmaster’s] decision is final“). That’s pretty definitively black & white. No shades of grey (gray?) at all: there is no law beyond the letter of the law.
I am not usually an advocate for unpleasant, unyielding blind authoritarianism, but as many upstanding law-abiding citizens like to constantly remind us, the rules are the rules (as in, “the Guidelines” are “the Guidelines”).** No exceptions. No (room for any) argument. No quarter.
No no no no no no no*

P.S., The asking price for it does seem very expensive for a book, all the same…
** (Edit): I hasten to point out that this should not be regarded as an intended criticism of the Guidelines, which are practical and sensible and consequently ought to be adhered to.July 29, 2019 at 4:19 pm #115440
Was not aware of the guidelines. Will refrain to post in the future.July 29, 2019 at 5:04 pm #115446
az: Will refrain to post in the future.
You need not “refrain.” Simply read the Guidelines, refrain from laying trails to eBay, then post to your heart’s content, listing all merchandise with your price.
