Swap vs Trade?

JimWJimW Posts: 133 ✭✭✭

We have a Buy, Sell, Trade forum and also a Swaps/Giveaway forum - if I want to 'exchange' a coin I own with a someone else for a coin they own, is it a Trade or a Swap??
To further the confusion, MS word Thesaurus lists 'swap' as a synonym for 'trade', and vice versa.
Should I just double post - same thing in both forums?
Seems like that would raise the ire of some folks....

    "I want to 'exchange' a coin I own with a someone else for a coin they own,"

    Sounds like you know the someone else. Why not just send them a PM?
    Or you would get more responses on the BST board.

    I was mostly pointing out (tongue in cheek) that there seems to be duplication in the forums.
    That is, we could easily have Buy, Sell, & Swap and Coin Trades, Tags, and Giveaways if those terms are interchangeable.
    I agree entirely that BST gets much more attention than CSTG (or Q&A for that matter) ;)
