You do bring up a good point Ruben. That is a grey area and I have seen a few members do it and say look at this?new meteorite I have and when you go to there website they have items listed for sale of that new fall or meteorite. Also, I have seen members say well if you want to see a good sample of this meteorite you can look at my website and they give a link to there website which is a dealer website in meteorite posts. To me that seems like advertising. I have also seen when people are talking about thin sections and?some people say, hey if you want to see some good sample go to my dealer website. I see that happen a lot and think if ads are going to be charged on here, that also?should be constituted as an AD??What about Trades??is that an?AD or wanted post?and someone posts their website?
One other point?I like to ask, you say less?AD will be better for dealers and list members? Well I didn't know the AD on here were a big problem. I thought the arguing and the nonsensical topics? was disrupting the website. Also $8 an?AD to the main deals is nothing, but for the ones that struggle with money?wont be able to pay that and post an AD. I guess it will be better for some dealers, because there will be less competition advertising on here.
