They are a bit stringent over there but you have to look at it from the paying advertisers point of view. Why should they pay while others get free advertising?
Perfect.

The mod pm'd me a few warnings which I replied to with a rather colorfull message that resulted in an immediate banning. Is this place as uptight as mbworld?
I truly dislike that place! You'll find it much nicer over here. MBW is what I envision as a modern-day concentration camp w/ a dozen Nazi's looking over your shoulder at all times!

Don't believe everything you think

Why would I pay 3600 yearly to sponsor if I had no intention of selling any products...All I said was I own budget rent a car and here is a pic of my smart and a shop I "own".

Although I am the midwest distributor for many benz products, I will never send that place a penny.

I like Ruby Tuesdays. They make me a yummy steak that they put in a black styrofoam box. I'll bust a cap in yo butt if you make fun of Runaway Freight Train. She is da bomb.

I could see that as advertising. Although how you did it falls into a grey area. You still didn't handle it properly.
