I don't take it personal. The reality is that, to no avail, I believe I have been trying to help you. I do accept I may be the only one that feels your advertising, promotion and selling compromises the integrity of the forum. It could also be you are well within the rules. If either is true, shame on me.

Please note the following exert from forum rules:

Use of Xoutpost.com resources is restricted to non-commercial accounts unless otherwise contracted with Xoutpost.com. By accepting this agreement, you agree to not use any Xoutpost.com resources for commercial means without contracting with Xoutpost.com.

Vagasil synthetic motor oil--get your motor running--only the best for your X, Vagasil.
Your not the only one who feels that way.

I read this forum almost everyday and lately it seems that 20% of my reading is a commercial. For lack of better terms...... Lame.

I believe this behavior is unacceptable and a mod putting an end to this disruption, I'm sure, would be well accepted.

Cautious is good paranoid is crippling. X5 is like any other machine. If you take care of it, notice when it sounds different or isn't running as it should and address the issue early you will be fine. I find plenty of things to be paranoid about. My X5 is my tranquilizer.

I would dare say the essence of the success of this forum is that it is a place where X5 enthusiasts around the world can share their experiences, learn and contribute.

I doubt any advertising is intended to be free and it shouldn't be. This site has expenses and free advertising foreshadows the end.

I pay to advertise my friends, hence the green logo and that little thing that says "vendor" only payed $35 for the 1st month but may be doing $75+ depending. So i fell im doing more then my parts to support the forum and im in now way using it as "free" advertising.
