Every three months we are going to beat this dead horse.
If we take away someones right to talk about what they like for fear of sounding spammy that is so stupid! I use X covers, I love X covers... if someone asks me what kind of cover to use- I will ALWAYS answer the same.
If we only allowed the products of advertised wahms to be talked about and mentioned- then we are turning MDC into one big fat infomercial. I dont think any wahm wants a part of that since in the long run it will hurt them.
As a wahm, should I leave the board because I am torn between the idea of making friends with people who might in turn be my customers and then *horror* say nice things about me and my product? If they are talking about my product and my customer service only... then it should NOT matter if they are my friend. They pay me money and pay the same price as everyone else so they have just as much right to say something as the next person does.
I think the sticky part might be with threads that just start with "I love this product soooo much" and suggest that they take that to the diapering review section instead. But talking about stockings, answering and giving advice about products etc etc should not be policed any heavier than it already is.
Oh.. and in reply to the "spam board" we do have one. Its called the daily diaper. Nobody reads it
