Hi Eric, In my group I allow ads on Sunday only. I find the groups that allow ads all the time, I just delete through the groups postings. I know when I come to this group I am going to get good insightful information. Ron > Eric Sohn wrote: >

Folks -


I received a post yesterday that was a pitch for a member's services. I've already written back saying that I wasn't approving it, but I also wanted to let folks have their say.


My thought is that this network is not an appropriate place for people trolling for business through posts. I don't have a problem if you mention your services that address the topic being discussed, but something like - If you want bigger, better widgets, come see our web page - is inappropriate, IMHO. I'd rather people PM'ed folks with their pitches.


Now, I know that others require ADV in front of blatant ads - and it sure would boost our message count. On the other hand, while we want foot traffic, so that more people learn from what we discuss here, I think that having ads detracts, not adds, to the attractiveness of the network.


So, that's how I'm leaning - what do you think?


Coach Eric
