Why ??

I don't like it that you can't respond to posting in Clasified forum.

Many posts are not complete or all that informative, and beg further questions.

Requesting further info and/or pictures is normal.  It shouldn't require a PM.

if questions elisit more information,everyone benefits including the seller.

I understand what you are saying but I kind of like it.  On other forums I get tired of people asking questions like is it still for sale several years after the ad was posted.   My favourite is asking the seller to contact them, if you are interested in buying then use the contact info the seller posted in the ad.  

On the other hand I have often posted to a seller that maybe their ad should have a ten digit phone number instead of a nine digit one and stuff like that.  

No perfect system I guess.

Not a problem if the seller posts that the article has been sold, but most of these posts require additional information and questions alert the seller to this.

Maybe a type of 'form' sellers simply fill in could be an answer.

I like the form idea maybe with mandatory fields to get at least the basics.

We removed the ability to reply due to abuse and the fact that folks would  just carry on conversations in the threads, dredging up old posts, etc....

 

It's not perfect, but if the seller follow the guidelines, and the potential buyer contacts via whatever method is mentioned (phone, e-mail, private message), then this kind of stuff can get worked out. I'll say that I do not moderate it as much as before, but the qty of posts is also quite a bit less.
