I Think Vendors get Suspended and Warnings alot more than you think. Of course The site is here to Make money who the heck does something like this for free with this many members.... When the Site first Started Tran wasnt making any money the Sponsorship was free Thats alot of work for no Pay check... We should be glad we dont have to pay a membership fee for being a member here. This forums is much better than most about letting you speak out against Vendors.

But who am I to question such things though..

Lmao.. that's funny, no wonder we are not allowed to bash vendors here, cause for example.. if we as a community decided to have a pitchfork fest with a vendor, and we decided to ban this said vendor and due to lack of business, this said vendors leaves... that's $1,200 rent out of somebody pockets rite..

all I gotta say is.. way to look out for us
Bump for connecting the dots.....sheeple's

I wouldn't be too hard on the web-site for accepting advertising dollars...lol...

Sort of seen this "issue" come up before and it is still a free market place where the bad-apple vendors won't last...I think the mods and certain other members make an effort to eliminate certain "businesses" through the "vetting" process which can only happen after a track record is established...I'd rather see it that way than an alternative of charging certain vendors more, and not allowing any open competition at all...

If it were strictly to keep advertising revenue in place, no threads like this one would even be on the forums...lol...

Just sayin', it pays to do your homework before you buy anything from anybody....the web-site and other members will help, but there's no guarantee you will be 100% satisfied all the time....

I have no problem with the host making money off the site....everyone who says they shouldn't needs to get off your duff and start up a "free" one yourselves if you do. Its allot of work even with Moderator's.

And its just silly to start quoting prices for servers like that's all it costs....you have more equipment costs than that, you have software and user license costs, you have website design and .com name costs,, you have the time put into building and maintaining that equipment costs, you have to provide space for the equipment, that costs, you have to keep it debugged and troubleshooting costs, you have power costs, you have costs to replace failed equipment, as well as backup equipment costs, you have costs for mandatory upgrade costs, there's dozens of necessary expenditures that are included in something like this, it isn't just signing up for a Facebook page........


It makes zero difference if they ban the vendors or not....as long as they aren't deleting the negative posts or otherwise actively try to hide stuff.

I have seen vendors dropped when it was discovered and confirmed after a separate investigation, they were doing damaging actions to members on here.

If your to lazy to do due diligence and research at least on this forum, much less on the web before buying from someone then that's totally on you.....why does everyone think its someone else's responsibility to "protect" you.

I mean its not like you have to buy from any of the vendors on here if you think the mod's aren't policing them correctly in your opinion, because they are getting payed "massive" amounts of money not to.....

And its pretty ludicrous actually to say they don't ban vendors, look at the RX situation recently......they banned a vendor for breaking forum rules....
