It's been a while since I had a grump, but of late there have been so many business advertising their services in this section that I am starting to lose my patience.

If you run a class, offer tutoring, look after pets/children, help people lose weight (etc etc), then you should not post in this section.

Zero tolerance from now on, I've previously been moving threads that are in the wrong place, but the list of repeat offenders is as long as my arm and the hours in a day are limited, so threads will be deleted without warning.

Thanks.

Thanks for the clarification. It can be a bit unclear, espectially if you are a freqeunt poster in this section or are responding to a request of recommendation.

Hello moderator

I've just launched a site flendr.com which is about lending between family and friends - a big taboo, but this makes it easier. I am on the forum (have even bought some stuff and sold stuff) and I'd like to see what the forum thinks about it or lending between friends and family in general. I've done it all my life - hence Flendr. Can I do that/how can i do that.

Thanks in advance

Sue

My guess it depends on the definition of "advertisements". If I recommend my favourite baby food shop to someone asking for ideas and suggestions on the topic, would that be considered a violation?

Should not be the case.

Whereas XYZ corporation coming in to say how great their services are, I think we are all much sick and tired of that and heavyweight moderation is certainly due.

Many people (including me) are making the same mistake. If someone asks the specific question "local Cookery schools" - is it alright to respond - Lot of the times that is what is happening.

I am sorry I didn't realise this although I am not sure if my post is classified as an advertisement or not (?!) as I was really hoping for feedback about the idea. I will happily move it if you think it would be more appropriately positioned elsewhere on the site.

Hi Moderator - I was looking to meet and connect with fellow Latin American and Spanish families in the area. It's not a business and I'm not running a class. Should I have posted in the family classifieds section? When I looked through it it seemed to be purely for people running businesses and looking to buy/sell things which I didn't really think related to us.. when you get time some more guidance would be much appreciated :-)
