ATTENTION, to all our members, please read this

It has come to our attention that some unscrupulous vendor(s) and/or their employees have been soliciting sales from you, our loyal members, via the pm system. Unless you have directly asked for them to contact you concerning their product, this practice is a violation of the forum rules. If anyone has received any unsolicited pm's regarding product sales, please forward it to one of the admins so we can deal with it. Thanks, Rick

I had a couple of those unwanted solicitation a few weeks/month back, I just told them NO THANKS and suggested they use the classifieds like everyone else. Haven't had any since from them or anyone else. Rules are rules, you checked YES to be a member of the site - IDIOT or what after that!!!!

I could use some help with the rules related to postings. Yesterday I made a posting regarding an online vendor that has performed very poorly and the posting was removed quickly. Is this a violation? I assume that others would appreciate the warning. It is a fair forum in that others who have had good service from that vendor would be able to respond in kind.

PVjimmy, usually, if a negative post or thread is removed it's because it looks more like a bash-fest and not a warning. I cannot speak for the post you are referring to but, if you will pm me a link to the thread I'll look into it and we'll get you an answer.

Is it hard to make a PM solicitation filter.


Include the words below:

Are you interested in
SALE, limited time only
Buy 3 get one FREE
FREE delivery

It would be difficult because in order to make it work we would also have to monitor the pm's to ensure the system was working properly. The best approach at this time is for folks to just notify us when they receive a pm that violates the rules or is offensive. We'll look into it and take whatever action is appropriate.

Is it against the rules for us to mention an or even give out the phone number of vendors that we have used ?

If someone asks for it, that is cool. Don't go around the forum dropping the name and number for no reason (looks like advertising) or put it in your sig. What I have in mine is cool (giving credit) but it would be a no no if I had their numbers in there.
For Example:

member 1: I'm looking for a widget... who else has used them?

Member 2: I got mine from the widget company. I like it pretty good.

Member 1: What's their number/website?

Member 2: www. ....

You get the picture...


I had a few dealings with a couple of vendors, and I wrote a post about how they did a good job. People that wanted to know more PM'd me or asked a ? on the thread. I did not try to push their sales...


Clear as mud?
