Today I looked for a recent post about El Matador Colloidal Silver Gel to check the view count, but it is no on the forum.  Then I found a message from someone telling me that advertisements for goods or services cannot be posted on the Forum.  That is pretty significant news, since I and many other people have been advertising things there for many years.  A lot of people do not go to the classifieds pages and thus do not see the ads there.

Apparently my post was summarily removed with no notice to me.  There are still various items for sale listed in forum posts, along with yard sales and ads for the Flea Market at Chiriqui Storage.

Although I see no harm at all in posts about yard sales, items for sale, etc. being on the forum and would prefer that they continue,  if they are not going to be allowed, I would like to be assured that the same rule will apply to everyone and for all kinds of such ads.  Can you assure me of that?

Thanks,

Bob

Hi Bob, I will gladly address this.  Just over a month ago, we changed this rule, as every second post in the forum was commercial advertising.  We posted this at the top of the forum:

POST GUIDELINES FOR NING

Members PLEASE, DO NOT POST FOR SALE, WANTED, BUSINESS OFFERS, BUSINESS EVENTS, CLASSIFIEDS, RENTALS, OR REAL ESTATE IN THE FORM, POST THOS…

We are trying to keep it clean, although we may miss the odd one.  Our classified section has really grown, and we promote it a lot outside of Ning, I am sure your products will do well there.

The main forum was designed for community information, help to members, and for new people to get involved and meet others.  We hope you understand our decision.

Have a great day,

Oscar
