Sponsors posting in Non-Sponsors Classifieds

     Featured on
I’ve noticed an increase of Forum Sponsors, who we generally appreciate, posting more and more outside of Classifieds / Sponsors section.

Most have mentioned they cannot mention price in those other sections and it is very infrequent and not an issue as they usually announce a newly carried item that members might want. It’s educational of the new items on the market.

Yet there seems to be another testing the water posting ads in Member’s Classifieds, advertising OEM CF Parts with price in 3 different threads, for 3 out of the first 26 posts....or over 10%.

They state that they can do it as long as it’s not abused. Over 10% of posts in Members Classifieds seems abusive to me and others. But the Sponsor appaerently does not see it that way and asked for your input.

So, what exactly the forum rules for Sponsors posting in Members Classifieds on a typical stock item (nothing new) instead of in Sponsor’s Thread?

As you know, I go out of my way to report Commercial Vendors who are breaking the rules selling their items without being a Sponsor.

Likewise, It is my pleasure to support a large number of Sponsors who do not spam and offer great prices. However, I will certainly avoid those spamming and abusing forum TOS.
