Trade membership

Hi - all this does sound very vindictive! Not nice! In actual fact when we look at the trade directory on this site it represents big business selling new products and really does not cover or represent what I do. I offer buyers a great saving on nearly new stock. I am not a hardened business man, and often give away life jackets and anchors to my customers as good will gesture. Please do not judge me until you have given me a visit - thanks.

Ivan - a trade membership upgrade on here could bring a lot of business your way.

Your Trade membership is not working and it is not representative of small business's like mine - looking back on what you have written in reply to these links - you and your admin team are sounding like a very vindictive and viscous bunch of people!

ivanclifford. You previously have tried to deceive the Admin Team by claiming that you are not trade. I have removed MANY ads that you have placed here. Patently you see the benefits of trade membership (as do another "smaller" traders like Peter - boats&outboards4sale). However you seem to feel that you are entitled to take the advertising that you want without payment. I find this unreasonable and unacceptable.

You were right about me being vindictive though...

Are you confusing us with somewhere else? A Trade Membership costs 100 a year and is perfect for small businesses. The price has been held for over ten years by the way, and is seriously undervalued.

Anyway, if you decide that it's not for you that's fine. Just don't post any ads or try to use the forums to promote your company. It's really simple.

Far from being vicious or vindictive we are actually extremely accommodating and have explained to you how things work several times. Even now we're still offering you the chance to put your house in order rather than simply banning you.

After my 7 day ban I will now reply; I enjoy looking at your forums, and yes I have put up a couple of adverts. I find that you John have a measured and balanced approuch to this, I sense you realise I have a genuine interest in inflatable boats as well as run a business. Other admin members comments have been somewhat overly viscious - all very unwelcome and nit picky, its healthy to keep a sense of perspective on things. I do appreciate your last comments and as a concequence I have now registered as a trade member - sadly the trade directory is still out of order. Hopefully I will join in some forums and offer up some advise and help where possible.
