DRASTIC measure, deleting posts like that. Did you also BAN the poster?
@lowside 67: Why do you use the word SPAM here? A single post about a specialty trailer maker once every 6 months or so does not qualify in my mind.
Some of us may have liked looking at the photos of higher end trailers, if for no other reason than knowing what can be built.
Considering the dearth of activity on this forum for the last several years, an occasional post of any sort should not raise such ire.
@Dave Schotz, a single complaint from a "basic member" can get such unilateral action? Wow.
No, I just cleaned up the posts, and limited the 15 in a row that were all advertisements.
Pardon my dissenting opinion, but the trailers/towing sections have and will always be one with peaks and valleys in activity. I viewed the presence of the apparently unseemly (as viewed by someone other than myself) posts as effectively keeping the pilot light on for the subject.
Of concern to me is that one complaint, with the misuse of the term "spam" was enough to trigger a unilateral trash-binning of one person's submissions. Those, BTW, included great photos, showing some features in trailers that I had not seen before. I don't know of anyone who would really classify perhaps half a dozen relevant posts over nearly 3 years on a single topic as spam.
Reality is, that for this Forum, I am one of those people who comes to view some topics that I am subscribed to. Those connections have likely occurred because I have commented at one time or another under the subject heading. So what I conclude now is that instead of being pulled here a couple of times a year to view photos of trailers, there will likely be a cessation of automatically generated contacts on the subject.
I much preferred the very occasional linked notifications of postings to none at all, which will likely be the result. The latter is apparently what one forum member is after.
