Items not marked as 'sold' - when obviously sold!

As a long time user of Adverts.ie I sing its praises everywhere and think it's a fantastic resource.
But the amount of items now 'sold' but not marked as such is a serious problem. I won't waste my time scrolling through ads that are not actually viable, or placing offers on items that are long gone, and I imagine others won't either. The ladies bicycle section, for example, is littered with this.
Could a banner warning people this is a rule that needs to be strictly observed, be placed? Or email all users warning about this?
I love Adverts.ie, you have created a wonderful site. But this is unbelievably annoying.

Hiya leolee, we're aware this is an issue for some folks, and are actively putting solutions in place to prevent this (although this may take some time)

You don't inform sellers clearly what the procedure/etiquette is. For example, in the 'Removing/Deactivating Your Ad' section, there isn't actually any info on this. Also - nothing under 'Using Advert.ie'. So that would be a start and could be done quickly/easily.
