That just means the owners are here for profit. A forum isn't that costly to run as I own a full vbulletin site myself.

It's the users who make the place happen. Without the customers, these vendors would be non-existent.

I have had several people PM me in this regards already. Right now, I am keeping it under wraps. Too many spies/fanboys to have to worry about.

Honestly, anything is possible. Threads disappear all the time with no warning. I've also heard from several members about bannings.

Like I said, vendors rule so we have to be cautious.

The funny thing is that you can praise a vendor to no end but when you shout out against them it's a whole other ball game. They want accolades when things go well but you should go to hell if you speak against them if something goes wrong.

Pay to play. I think there were only a handful of posts in the Vossen thread when it suddenly disappeared.

...I'll likely have a doozy coming up. Currently being stonewalled by a manufacturer. Letting my lawyer handle it. But will post about it once it is resolved and I have my money back.

Agreed.

It sounds like I've had OK luck compared to others because I've dealt with five forum vendors and only two were bad.

I'd bet good money that at least one of those vendors is on my naughty list.
