    will im getting pretty tired of a few members on here that have some type of wonder product that will solve all are problems in life.yes im sure there products are great ,but when i start a thread about a kohler engine falling apart. i don't wanna hear about how a FLEX DECK or a Mega Mow product (just to name a Few) can help solve my problem.so i feel if your going to post it should be about what the thread is.sorry to upset some but im really sick of this crap!! :angry:

    I'm with you. If I am reading a post that has someone selling something in it, I move on to the next subject. I don't mind when other members post a link to something, but when I read "try my product", I just move on.

    Does this make it apparent why permission marketing far surpasses interuption marketing in results? Flex deck and Meg mo are interupers and everyone can see where thats got(getting) them.

    Y'all are also talking about sponsors of this site, and they should be welcome to post any pertinent info they have on a given thread shouldn't they?
    If it's an actual member posting and trying to sell their garage made slicer dicer, that's completely different.

    Isn't it also beneficial at times when a sponsor replies to an equipment question/concern? Don't think you can do one and not expect the other, just ignore the postings you don't care for, not that big of a deal.

    Your kidding. This is a free site and the sponsors are posting which they support the site so it is free to you so you are complaining about your ability to post on a free site. It takes a second to move past the advertising post or is that to hard to do.

    Beats pop-ups, spam, and telemarketers.

    I don't mind, they are sponsors and if I didn't want to read it I could get rid of it easy enough.

    It'll be alright.

    I agree with homer 100%

    You have a ignore list you can use it anytime.

    In order for you to post and read at this forum, someone has to pay for it, those are the sponsors

    I just move on if something is there I don't like.
