    so if i was to start a thread saying I found out about this great deal called "OTI" you would have No problem??
  2. #22  
    I wouldn't call Mr Jones a "buddy" cause we have never met and never done business. I only found out who he was because of the post last week and I first contacted him as a result of that post.

    Personally I don't find a single thread about a deal of any kind objectionable ... assuming it is a deal and not "business as usual"....and not posted in 4 different sections. I don't wanna see a post about Treo's for $399 when I can buy them in 200+ places for $399. But if a guy is gonna offer them for $299, then hey I am interested.

    I, and others, frequentlypost "deals" that I see whether it be the $99 Treos at Amazon, sales at various web istes, SD Card deals or whatever. To say it is OK for me to do that and not OK for Seidio or MJ seems ..... well I just don't get it.

    If the post is informative and of benefit to the TC Forum users, my vote is leave it alone. If it's blatant rah rah, my stuff is great, or repeated anew once a week, I don't wanna see it. But by saying "No you can't do that", all ya gonna get is a bunch of schills posting on someone's behalf. Instead of David coming on from Seidio and saying "hey we have a new battery cover for the 700", you gonna get a post from JoeBlow with his 3rd post saying "Hey I just visited the Seidio site and saw that they have a new battery cover for the 700". Frankly, I prefer the former so I can say "Hey David, I used that battery cover and it stunk".....just an example their the cover doesn't stink

    I go to OTI's web site and from the information there, there is no way I could tell that they had anything to do with cell phones so if it wasn't for that post here, I never woulda known that my members could get such huge discounts.

    If you gonna slam OTI than by all means do it to everybody. Slam the e-mail program provider who jumps on every post regarding a competing product trashing the product and saying "mine's better". Slam the weather app guy, slam Seidio who has a dozen threads announcing their new products, slam the guy whose giving us 15% discounts on Proclips. I only saw the one thread so personally I have nothing to complain about; I am glad it was there. After looking

    I think this thread

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=115612

    is a direct response to this one

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...d.php?t=114157

    So can I blame someone for posting in the same section that they have the best price we've seen....no not really IMO. Looking at the post history ***that I have seen*** I haven't seen a prevalence of postings.....one thread started by a user on the 650 and another by OTI.

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...&highlight=OTI
    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...&highlight=OTI

    Looking at threads started by this user I see a lot of useful posts on various topics.

    So in conclusion, I see little reason to single out OTI as a big bad business spammer.....much bigger fish to fry.... There are many, many forum users more blatant about their products than OTI has been. If I had a criticism it would be the double post, one in 700p section and one in marketplace, but again, seeing as the question of what OTI was offering in the 700p did appear in the 700p section, given the users past history, I gotta give them the benefit of the doubt. I don't think there wa any intention of taking advantage of TC's T&C's and I think the benefit to TC Forum users far outweighs the double post

    Which is what it was. Regardless, most of the posts have been deleted or closed so I guess TC agrees with me.

    Let me clarify this. T/C forum is not an ad supported forum. It is a private forum created by marcus. Whatever benefits he gets out of the forum is his alone. We, the moderators, have been informed by one of the admins, T/C Forum is separate entity from T/C Stores hence we really do not perform any function related to the store.

    If marcus or any of the admin believes that mjeleven and OTI are posting conflicting interest to T/C or has been detrimental to T/C or its members, then the moderators would have been informed by now.

    mjeleven have been reminded of the new policy which I hope he will respect.

    So there you go geatches, put yourself under citizens arrest for posting false information in the forum.

    This whole thread is about 1 guy complaining about a none issue!

    That would be "non-issue".

    It depends on what your definition of "or" is.

    According to Ronbo

    No of deleted threads = 0
    No of closed threads = 1

    0 + 1 = 1

    I still having difficulty associatiating "1" with "most", but I'll just put it down to you having run into that thread at a bad time and that "one" was the proverbial "straw that broke...."

    After a search of his posts, I still have found only two ad threads and one ad post within a thread, for 2006 from the OTI rep. ONE did get locked. But this is hardly excessive ad posting. The guy who kept posting 50 phones in his ad thread every other day, under multiple handles and in the wrong forums, was much, much worse! I agree with the guy who said this is a non-issue.

    Once again with your quick wit and intellectual prowess you cleared it up. Thanks Lady, you are the best!

    I don't get enough at home.

    For some reason this really bugged me, I don't know why. I'll shut up and move to the O.T. forum where my fellow attention seekers hang out. If I offended anyone I apologize.

    It is proper to remove graffiti ASAP, and if you keep removing it, eventually
    even the scum of the earh who spray paint on walls get the idea and go
    elsewhere. What's so special about you that you can't figure out how to
    politely promote your business within the rules of this forum?

    small addition to that, if a company is promoting something, they should do it in the marketplace forum, not in any of the others.

    If you feel a thread is out of please please report it so we can move it.
