There appears to be an increasing number of members who are non participating and selling only....aka vendors.

IMHO this issue will accelerate or maybe they are the same members?

couple of things :
1. A members tax status is their business alone and shouldnt be discussed by anyone but them.

2. If someone is selling to reduce the cost of their expensive hobby why is this an issue if its helping others get cheap items? if it is an issue, for more than two members, new rules may be needed to identify the ABN status of the member. No ABN, no business, no need for an ABN for a hobby, its all in the Govt. regs .
3. If a member says "its my hobby" then that should be the end of it unless they start competiting with registered (?) vendors.
Ill buy what I want where I want at a price that suits me. If a local business doesnt get my trade and go's under so be it. They need to be competative and/or provide good service ,not try to scalp me.

I'd prefer for them to declare themselves as vendors if that's what they are doing, it would actually make me more likely to buy from them really.
