I don't think non VIP's are considered second class citizens, it's just that the site owner decides the rules and privileges, as is their right.If the consensus is that non VIPs are perhaps second class citizens then perhaps it should be a club with a membership fee?
Non-VIP's can still buy off the forum, albeit with a more awkward process. They'd either have to post their details for all to see, or setup a second 'junk' email address, then reply to the post asking the seller to contact them.
Wanting to benefit from good quality second hand kit at a great price without contributing anything to the finances of site that provides the service means compromise. As I said though, spending £13 to save potentially hundreds seems a much better option.
