i joined in 2005 and many of the FS ads turned into a 75 thread, back and forth post about the asking price. the changes were made in an effort to help both buyers and sellers. many people disregard the "rules" any way.
i think the benefit of establishing a price you'd be satisfied with (which you've already done in your head when you decide to sell something), and communicating that price in your ad, is to 'weed out' people who aren't in the same ball park.
