It's underhand, transparent and desperate. Still it wouldn't affect my purchasing decisions in favour of the saboteur.
not everyone fully researches a product before buying and it could easily affect sales imo.I think this is a good idea but im sure a mod would remove any obviously biased remarls if asked.
That is a good suggestion as I have seen a guy with a banner sig promoting a service posting in every competing service thread; I'm sure it is so he can get his service in front of people that are considering buying in that thread.
Hes been called out a couple of times; I ignored him in my thread.
I also agree. I don't sell anything here but I do in other forums and people do this all the time. Write some random question, etc. just so they're in there with their sig.
It's hard to police though.
As you'll see, I have a sig, BUT I am active user of lots of services here, and I'm not biased. I write honest reviews and I never post purely for sig... Some people might operate differently, but how do you differentiate?
Your deal is a little different as you do not own that service; it's the guys that own a competing service that I think should show some respect.
I'd agree. Its not completely unethical but it is rude. The person needs to find some other way to advertise and not just try to steal other peoples customer base.
Yea that's a fair point. Guess you just got to point it out if someone's clearing taking the piss.
Agree. That is just being petty and greedy. Have some class. There are many other places on the internet to get customers besides here.
Not sure how aggressively mods can go after this... But I think the majority of us can see when this shit is happening and call it what it is, which should deter some of these low lives.
If your service is good it can stand on its own without pissing on someone else's dinner table.
I remember a good example:
Loved the response from http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/9726-entri3.html
The guy that entri3 responds to is one of the most blatant of the "drop my competing sig in your sales thread" guys.
Swetech I think this is hilarious that you of ALL people would make this thread. Doing so the promotion you did for venom lol
I would suggest:
-removing signatures from BST section all together
This would make things much better.
Do You remember when he said to you
Is blasting your MNS With a linkpush makes it a MNS+ ?
In what competitor sales thread have I been promoting venom?
It was something like that; I would never do something like that as I think that shows a lack of respect.
@Spawn, the OP does not own Venom so that is a tad different in my opinion.
Is this thread by chance inspired by a recent post from someone in a competitor thread?
I'm asking because I have read this 2 hours ago or so and def don't like it.
"I bought your software and mine is 100 times better than yours and all your sales should go to my software"
I consider this pure hijacking which leads to a ban according to this thread.
From what I can recall, he's just a teenager - nothing more
