I hope I'm posting this in the right spot. If not, please feel free to move it. I thought that we might benefit from a discussion on the forum of the extent to which commercial promotion works against the mission of the forum. Or maybe most members think this is just fine. I've been accused of being catty for responding to a post that read to me like crass promotion. It's not a question of cattiness. I feel the forum shouldn't be hijacked to cynical commercialism. But that's just me. Maybe some of you feel otherwise. Right now, someone's hyping a site in Deals and Steals which purportedly sells fakes. Is there a way we can control this? I think it tends to happen when people who have been here a month or less post and then I question their motives. Has they joined just to promote fake stuff or even real stuff, but they've joined with no other purpose? I like hearing about the legitimate sales in this section of the forum and always check it, but hate feeling manipulated. What do the rest of you think?
