    here a new guy opens a new sales thread selling proxies. betflock
    notice the sig of the first member to wish him good luck

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ivate-anonymizers-fresh-fast.html#post7160290

    this shouldnt be allowed - its clearly a product drop where the user wishing him good luck
    is dropping his sig there also selling proxies....why?

    because even iff arganrecords comments are sincere wishing him good luck, that fact he didnt
    disable his sig in a new users sales thread of a person selling similar type of content as him is wrong
    and should be stopped .

    arganrecords could easily have wished betflock good look with his new product and disabled his own
    sig, he did not, which to me shows a little intent to mark his product on a brand new sales thread as his
    product sells proxies just like betflock.. its time users sigs other than the thread maker where disabled in sales
    threads to stop this..... or am i wrong ?

    Mate I've placed an order from Betflock, if someone wants can disable my signature.
    Please slow down with this threads, I can't change the signature now, contact mods and mark it has "unethical behavior".

    Thanks.

    yes u can edit thread - advanced - disable sig
    and your post only asked for a review copy

    .

    you both sell proxies, so dropping your sig as a proxy seller in a brand new proxy sellers
    sales thread, still isnt not ethical i will repeat

    what do you think happens when 2 people who sell a similar type product
    and 1 sticks an add not on your door step, but in your front room, common sense
    says its not ethical.

    you where the first post of a regular member on that thread
    your post didnt place an order it asked for a freebie while at the same time dropping
    your proxie add in his BRAND NEW proxie sales thread.

    you then say u cant disable your sig, which any vip can do, edit/advanced/remove sig
    ide say u new what where u doing, product placement. its UN-ethical and i shoudlnt have
    to pm you [ YOU SHOULD NO ]. man if u did that in my sales thread ude wish u didnt
    get a pm from me

    but i digress thankyou for removing your proxy sig from a brand new proxy sellers
    sales thread.

    I'm not disabling my signature every time I want to wish someone luck...for two reasons. 1) The people who paid me to put their links in my signature did not pay me to have the signature disabled at any time. That was not in the terms of our agreement. 2) I have friends on the forum whom I want to cheer on. I'm going to cheer them on when I feel like it. Those are my terms.

    With that said, I pay absolutely no attention to whether or not the person I'm wishing luck is competition to what's in my signature. I can't speak for anyone else, but I have no ulterior motives other than to wish my friends luck.

    well good for you, your sig isnt the same business,
    and i will repeat seemed odd the first reply was from a person in the same
    business, and yes i stand by if u buy something which he didnt he asked for a freebie
    and place your sig selling something very similar its curious to do it

    proxygo, I agree some people probably do promote their sig unethically in competitors sales threads but I think most people (I hope) can see through that when it happens.

    I try to be courteous when I remember but 99% of the the time I am just too lazy to disable my sig when posting in threads.

    I don't think legitimate sellers have anything to worry about but if it is a genuine concern for sellers, then maybe Admin can enforce a site wide disablement of sigs in all sales threads.
    Not sure if it is possible but it would be better than relying on people to disable them individually.

    I think many doesn't even know that the signature along with other features can be turned off for specific posts.
    Think about it, how often do you see smileys turned off when someone dump a skype log?

    Think about what you're saying. It makes no difference. If arganrecords does it, or if I do it, the results still have the same effect. The results still have the same effect because there is a competitor link in the signature both times. How silly it would look to have a rule that said "You cannot wish your competitor luck if you sell what he sells unless you remove your signature. You can keep your signature if you're wishing your friend luck, even though the link in your signature is competition with that of your friend."
