    NFI about the relationship between K9 (whom I quite like as a business) and DOL.

    I haven't seen K9 staff start a thread to advertise or promote their product. I have seen them answer various questions posed by other members, dog training or specifically about K9 services. I haven't seen them go round the forums saying in response to every question - your problems will be solved by coming to us.

    I have seen as accepted practice on many forums, that a business put their contact details in their siggy and then use their business related expertise to help the forum members.

    This happens a lot at whirlpool.net - which is a techy forum related to all things internet use. There are whole sections devoted to various ISPs, and several of the ISPs encourage their staff to post helpful responses in the forums.

    It's not the same as starting threads to say I have this product - please buy it. Which may or may not be ok depending on what the forum rules say. It would probably be polite to place such a thing in the buy/sell section - which is usually for personal items not business product placement - but if it is for a business - best to ask the forum provider / host first. Is similar to software that is free for personal use but they want a fee if you use it for business. Tricky if you're in transition between personal and business sales.

    PS some of you say "bitch" like it's a bad thing.

    Frankly the policies of DOL should be of no interest to us here. Some like it, others don't. It is the big city whereas this forum is a small country town

    Love the website!

    Someone else started the thread about GSD's though - not her - and GSD's was helping the people asking questions in the thread. At least that is my understanding of GSD's post here.

    So where has GSD's advertised her own site there?

    Judge, perhaps if you want to know what DOL is like, the best option is to go find out for yourself. Then you will know.

    Her banner is on the "view all advertisers" bit - if you click under the ad banner at the top of that other forum page. They've got some interesting businesses listed, but interestingly K9Force hasn't got a banner. But most of the breeders have "business" details in their sigs - and not very many (any?) of them have banners either.

    I don't know if the original thread about GSDs4Ever's product - which wasn't started by her, is still there or not. Old threads are hard to find on that other forum. I don't know what happened that made her thread not ok and the K9force ones ok. "member tantee" is some clue. A lot of forum moderators just trash the problem thread (or member) without investigating to see what is the fair thing to do.

    Huh? Who's everyone? I only see two members having a discussion between themselves, nobody else.

    But you started the thread? Why close it?

    because I got the info I was after, and things are starting to get a tad heated!

    And I was saying everyone so as not to pin point anyone specifically.....
