It will be nice to know if something is local or within a reasonable driving distance without having to look up an address at FCC site. Can we add location as a feature to the posting form? Maybe just the zip code. Optional of course as some folks may not want anyone to know where they are ;-).

Thanks, -Bob

Yes, it would be nice to know where a seller is located. If they do not want us to know where they are then I don't want to buy from them. Just giving the zip code still requires a look up.    73, Jim

In todays world of reliable shipping companies Grin there is little need to know where a person is. I sell and ship stuff across town and across the country in the same way. maybe I don't want you coming to my house! Maybe its cheaper to ship across town than to drive. Maybe I just don't like people in general!  Undecided.  With all the wackos in the world today one can not ever be too cautious. It is an old way of thinking that you need to know where someone is. And with the speed of web searches how hard is it to look up and address or zip code? If you are already LOOKING at an ad for something online, how tough is it to do a little search. IMHO...
