2 issues with an ad - general question / comment

Post by KC9QKX » Mon Aug 09, 2010 5:22 pm

I see two problems here - the first, should members really be harrassing tech who want an hf rig? There's not much of a better incentive to upgrade than to be able to listen and not talk until the upgrade - anyone can listen, even non hams listen on recievers - just odd for someone to take the time to email and try to discourage them...

The second, comments being in ads! Seems more and more, people who feel they have to speak up need to use the forum, not ads section! That is what it is here for, right?

Ads section for ads / Forum section for "other" -

Yep, you're right, but I don't think a lot of the new guys even know this section exists.

You are absolutely right!

K3VW should never have said that. Especially since you have phone privileges on 10M and CW on 15M/40M and 80M.

Just tell the old fool to kiss your........

This situation was settled almost as soon as it happened and the ad was removed. Put another way, this is a non-issue.
