    Hi Guys,

    Well even though I am not an orange guy, <font color=blue>blue</font color=blue> guy [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img], I have picked up a wealth of information from this forum as well as the compact tractor board. I do a lot more watching than posting. I think that as long as a dealer is providing the kind of information that people on the board are looking for it is more of a help than a hindrance. Shoot, until I started following these boards I thought the only 4-in-1 you could get was on a track loader. Man would I love to have one, don't think the 1320 would handle it all that well though. I agree that blatant disregard to the viewers with a bunch of un-solicited ads would be a no no. Where else is so much information so readily accessible. Great forum!-----Cliff

    <font color=blue>How long before this newsgroup is nothing but free ads</font color=blue>

    Well we've been at it for three years now, and I don't think you'll find one user out of hundreds of thousands that would say that at any time since we opened the first discussion forum that this was a place with "nothing but free ads".

    We don't allow ads to be posted without permission, and we have removed such ads when they were posted in the past. However, there are people/companies with permission to post ads here and Carver Equipment is one. Long before they advertised on our forum, we allowed them to post ads. At one time a user complained about "free ads" being posted... Steve Carver e-mailed me requesting that I delete all previous posts of his, and that he would no longer post since a user was complaining. Without asking, the response from the users was overwhelming in favor of Carver Equipment, and since we have continued to support their contributions to the forum and to educating new tractor buyers. I think you see that exact same pattern here in this thread, with support for Carver Equipment, and hopefully like the last time, Carver Equipment will continue contributing.

    This is anything but the type of free ads many forums get overwhelmed with when they become popular.

    I'm joining the marching band behind Bird. I've been coming to this board for about a year and a half. Back when I started, Steve had time to give a lot more advice. I appreciated it every time. When it came time to buy a tractor I called him for a quote. He gave me a really good quote and answered a lot of my really stupid questions...bet his eyes are still rolling around in his head. Like many others I bought my tractor from a local dealer. None the less I will always be very appreciative of Mr. Carver.

    One other thing, Steve Carver pays to advertise on this board. Because of people like him we are able to have this board and it doesn't cost us a dime. Thanks Mr. Carver.

    Ok, after being away for a few days, all I get to say is "Ditto" to Bird, Muhammad, BillC, etc. None of the folks who sell products on this board has ever been anything but helpful, as far as I'm concerned. Aside from the financial support that makes this board possible, they have always contributed when they had something constructive to contribute. I don't know think anyone could fairly describe any of their posts as blatant commercialism. Steve has proven himself over the years to be a tremendous asset to the consumer, and so has Rick at R&B, for that matter. Thanks, guys. And thanks, Muhammad, for the excellent balance maintained on this board.

    Glad to see you're back, Mark. I've been wondering where you were.

    Ditto to all the positive comments in this thread. If someone doesn't like the post, they should ignore it and read something they find useful, of which there is an abundance on TBN.

    Ditto the dittos. Lets not create a problem that may never occur. I think everyone on this board is well informed enough that if erroneous information ever came across from a less than scrupulous dealer the "board" would make quick work of them and send them packing!! All I've seen from people with a commercial motivation have been objective replies to solicited inquiries. Thats the whole basis for this board. The fact that someone may personally benefit shouldn't automatically disqualify him/her from posting a reply. Steve/Rick - keep it up - here's one that welcomes the information and the more the merrier!!
