The owner of trapani racing had posted a real nice thing to say about every one bashing other pit bikes. That if every one rode one brand a lot of companies would be out of business ect.... I like what he wrote, just don't know what happened to that thread.

So if you own a shop you can't post unless you pay???? I don't get it. I didn't see any advertising. I did see a post trying to defuse some guys trash talking but, no advertising.

Does that mean we have to be careful posting links to shops or web sites. Wouldn't that be considered advertising?

:banghead: He did get his posts removed, I go in his shop and he said he is trying to be a sponsor but they say he has to be a manufacturer to use his logo.

Good questions...

Business owners can't promote their products on TT outside of being a sponsor. Why? We're sponsor funded so no sponsors, no TT. If we allow for free what our sponsors have to pay for, why should they sponsor us?

Very few things in life are free fellas and while TT is free for you, trust me, it's far from free to run.

Can a consumer recommend a good dealer or parts place? Sure, as long as they are not affiliate with that company. If we allowed that, you' get nothing but biased advice from anyone and everyone looking to make a buck. The forums would fill up with sale sharks and good information would become wattered down...

We've been enforcing this policy for almost 5 years and our success shows that it favored by most of our 72k+ members...

I completely understand TT's position and policy. I understand the need for site sponsors and how it funds the site. My feelings are more of where is the line drawn. Because there was really no advertising going on aside from an avitar. The only thing done was an attempt at mediating a situation and offering help and advise.

IMO: One payed TT sponsor felt threatened by the presence and brought it to the attention of the management. Because that is how fast it was removed.

Being a consumer I feel it equally annoying for a TT sponsor to continually offer bias opinions, advise and constantly throw out a sales plug when ever the compitition is mentioned.

I just felt it to be a bit extreme to do without a warning or explaination.

Yes, but you're forgetting one very important thing... You get FREE access to this site BECAUSE of the sponsors. So, you have to expect to put up with a few sales pitches and promotional posts. What do you want for free?

If you really want to complain, call your cable TV company. Commericials AND you have to write a check each month. Now that's worth complaining about.

Nothing in life if free fellas...
