I just went through this with people on this website and now I know the true definition of spam. Unfortunatly you have spammed(word?). But I can help you out. Look in product reviews.

See now i'm a user of your product and I've posted a review. As a user of a product that is not spamming. I'm just recommeding based upon my usage.
People are very uptight around here about spamming!

Hey now, it doesn't make a difference if people are interrested or not, so yes, it's spam.
I've been to your website, I think it looks a lot like this one:o so it's pretty good.
Maybe we should call all these "efforts" to generate membership for other sites "cheap trolls?"

And of course you don't mind if someone links DRN on your site. Duhh, look at the numbers.

I guess to me it's just a matter of respect and ethics.
Of course you can find ways to bypass any rule (Schlava), personally I think it falls under the afore mentioned category of cheap trolls.

Wolf,

I have not circumvented the rules. Look at the product reviews website. If I review a pair of tech 8's and say that people should buy them noone calls that spamming. Also, people in that forum have also reviewed their experinces with certain dealers. When those experiences are positive and the person says we should use that dealer, we don't call that spamming. So why does everyone think it is now that I've done the same thing with a website?

And whats wrong if we generate membership for his website. He doesn't charge us anthing to visit. Neither does DRN.

Do you know how I found out about this website? It was through someone else's recommendation on a different website. They had no problem with people mentioning other websites. Surprisinly this is the only website that has a problem with someone mentioning another website name.

I still can't get over the fact that we are all here for a common cause. The exchange of off road motorcycle knowledge and experiences. You think we would be all happy to learn of another website that does the same as this one does. Its our chance to expand our knowledge, friendships and experiences with other dirtbike riders. Why hold that information back from others?

just letting everyone know I've started a forum for the discussion of only off-road racing and riding...that's it...no mx, sx, or stupid jumps!

No MX, SX, Or Jumps .....sounds lame to me .....Hmmm another web site that does the same thing as this one does? <----Yes question.......Because I do not recall THIS site to be against MX,SX, or Jumps.

Yamamoto,

Point very well taken. I don't agree with that part of the description of the site. But with in my quote, I refer to all aspects of off-road riding. I apologize. I was comparing the webistes in general.

You certainly have not. I agree 100%. But you have turned it's intention around and that qualifies as a cheap troll.

"Why hold that information back from others?"

......holding something back, and actively promoting something (wouldn't wanna call it spam now) are two intirely different things.
By the way, I think you can share questionable info (spam) via personal messages or e-mail. That would mean you wouldn't have to "hold anything back".
Again, to me this is about respect and ethics, not convenience.

Truthfully, I don't even know why I got involved in this thread, I have absolutely nothing to gain by it and, as you mentioned before, this has been covered.
Some people will get it, some won't or maybe I'm not getting it.

No Offence taken

No need to appoligize.

I jumped in this one here only because i love all kinds of riding, if all i had was MX 15 min Motos and so on I think It would get boring quick, and on the flip side if all I had was Trail riding it would be the same.


what I really love about "OffRoading" is that you can you can climb hill, ride trails, do jumps, and so on.

I love Pizza ....but not every night and day.

WOLF,

Your right, in this particular instance I would agree that I turned it around to try to prove a point. Whats even funnier is that is has already been deleted in the forum! I guess they are pro-drn!

Yamamoto,

Cool.

I just totally disagree with the spamming rules as they presently are. But I guess you have to live with what the moderators feel is appropriate or not. Long live the moderators!

Oh and by the way.....
