Like what...to restaurants? Not much affiliate linking in the food world.

Loads of blogs do that though. Pretty much every camera review site has B&H, Amazon, Adorama, etc links that make them money. What's the problem?

Everything you spew out is dumbass comments. Why do you need a hats to talk to people. The only hat you need is one that says "Doofus". You should super glue it on your head so everyone doesn't have to communicate with you.
your moms so fat

that you suck your dads dick everyday you ugly phuc

and oh pls i can out aesthetic you any day of the week son

why dont you crawl back up your moms vag alrdy??




how does it feel? whatever you felt after reading the above is pretty much how i felt when you first posted in this thread

You are also missing a few commas and periods.

Also, I you are not using the word "aesthetic" properly. I would suggest googling "adjective".

Oh, and...please just stop all together. You are hurting my brain.

Ya, I'm fully aware how beneficial this thread is, especially now that it's been indexed by Google. This thread will also be used as part of my presentation for the upcoming Home Business Summit.

It amazing how helpful haters can be. They've made me money, allowed me to get my message out, provided content for a Driving with John Chow episode, done exactly as I predicted, and gave me a great case study to use in a presentation.

One of my readers even asked me if I paid Acura604 to start this thread! LOL Maybe I did, maybe I didn't.

I don't really get how this thread is allowed to exist when any other thread on Revscene that even hints at advertising for a business that isn't a sponsor gets shut down.

That's a policy that has needed to change for a very long time, and this thread makes a great case for allowing that change. We'll see

There is a distinct difference between defending a person and his values and defending a concept. Here the concept that needs to be defended is that a person who has not provoked any sort of attention on RevScene was "called out." His name was brought into the forum and his business was questioned.

What is a person to do then? Stay quiet and move on? Sure. But he's apart of this RevScene community and in fact, he's been around longer than most of us (although not as active.)

So the principle is why should we censor someone just because we don't like the way they're doing things? Why should we prevent someone from defending themselves and being criticized just because when doing so, he may be creating some publicity for himself. This thread should've been closed after the very first post if people are all up in arms about its existence now.

I would completely be on the other end of this if Chow had created his own thread saying "hey guys come check out what I do." But, he didn't and anything he's said in this thread has simply been a response or a rebuttal.

Let him be, you do you let him do him. Nothing he says or does will affect your life in way, shape or form.

If this goes through, then if someone was to ask where they could buy gas in Nanaimo, sure you would be able to make a post like that.

LOL that rule is one of the silliest rules I've seen on this forum. A forum that used to be a legitimate place to receive reviews and insights, recommendations and tips has become a site where only businesses that pay money can be spoken about.

Advertising and referring are two, completely separate things.

I'm pretty sure blogs and websites are already allowed to be posted and advertised for free on RS as long as they are in a post and not starting a new thread to check it out.

Because you trade points for your car. Also the company pays for the car and where do you think that money comes from? It comes from the your sales make. Instead of giving you are car they could have just given you more cash. But a free car sounds better to gullible people.

You understand what you're suggesting is that if someone is a sponsor, any other competitor in that same nature who is not a sponsor cannot be discussed, applauded or reviewed in any way?

The job of the website is to provide advertisement space. Not to eliminate conversation of the competition. It's not the yellow pages, it's an automotive forum that has a primary purpose of providing local knowledge and insights on the car scene. How can you do that if you're only restricted about talking about people who pay for sponsorship.

The YellowPages would have an obligation to ensure fair practice and opportunity for advertisement space. This is a discussion lead medium that can and should only guarantee the displaying of a sponsor's advertisement. What's next, can't post a deal that I find at Future Shop because SoundsGood Audio sells the same product? Can't recommend Meguilers Wax because Autowerks doesn't sell it?
