Best Forums (or ways) To Sell items Online?

Okay - so I have seriously had it with eBay - aside from the horrible community of retarded buyers, combined with horrible sellers it's just a massive shit-pile of a deathstar that will apparently, never die. But what really made me quit this crap is their recent hike of final value fee's. Something close to 10% of what my auction sells for goes directly to eBay. BUT WAIT! THATS NOT ALL FOLKS! For the awesome convenience to the buyer of electronically paying me, you can also add another 3%

Anyways, forums have definitely been my go-to place. I know a lot of people like to suggest Craigslist, but this is for small electronic items for the most part - but also some normal items like clothes and DVD's. Some things aren't even worth so much as to drive to meet people. So web forums have been my favorite place. However, posting on one just never seems enough. 1-2 PM's a day just isn't quick enough for stuff I want to move quickly and efficiently. Especially since I'm hoping to clear stuff before I get my own place shortly after graduating this semester.

So aside from these obvious one's, can you guys suggest some favorite places to sell things for free?

if it's liquidation you're after it's all about well done CL ads

nothing else will get the kind of traffic you need to get rid of things quickly.

unless of course it's something very specializied in which case you wont turn it fast no matter where you post it

It's liquidation I guess except im not really one to negotiate to the point of butt raping me out of much profit. I figure may as well keep the item and see if it gains value over time then throwing it away for pennies. But I guess it looks like CL is the way to go... Is it normal to ship items when dealing with CL? or is that rarely done?

I think you already touched on the sites that are good for this sort of thing. I've had the most luck at the [H] myself, but I think the key is cross posting on these sites to get the most views. Although I'm not sure I would post on Anandtech as every single person there seems to be a complete fucking moron for some reason.

Google needs to make an ebay alternative already, ebay must die.
