Special Interest Declaration
 
It has happened many times, especially on this forum, where members that have a special interest try and redirect other members. As such:

IF YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY AN ACTIVE ROLE IN THIS FORUM, OR ANY FORUM ON SAILNET, AND YOU HAVE A SPECIAL INTEREST IN THE MARINE INDUSTRY, YOU NEED TO IDENTIFY YOURSELF AS SUCH. THIS INCLUDES BROKERS, BOAT MANUFACTURERS OR EMPLOYEES THEREOF, MAGAZINES, TV SHOWS, SURVEYORS AND ANY OTHER SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP.

The Ground Rules (which may be added to as needed) for this are such:

1) You shall not in any way self promote...this includes links or e-mail addresses.

2) You shall identify yourself and your interest in your signature, your title, or both.

3) You shall not openly promote your company. Take out an ad.

4) You shall not redirect for personal interests.

5) You SHALL be tranparent and forthright.

If we find out otherwise, your posts shall be edited, you may be banned, or both. We may also take further action as needed. Honesty and integrity. This is a place for open discussion amongst new sailors and seasoned salts alike. It is NOT a source for customers. If you want customers, take out an ad. Obviously, there are a LOT of sailors here that will see it.

Damn...I am going to be banned..

1) I have a special interest in the marine Industry, it really interests me
2) I have identified my self
3) Are my videos TV shows??? I mean, there was a guy here once invited me to do a TV show, but he never showed up again
4) I also have other special interests, like painting
5) I do self promote, as very good looking extremely good sailor
6) How do I do my signature?? Do I write in the screen with a pen?? I have done it but it did not stay on the white thing in the screen
7) Can I closedly promote my company?? Some people are openy gay.
8) I have redirected special interests several times, but the Hog does it more
9) Transparent ?? how do you do that?? I mean I did once lose some weight but people could still see me.

Ugh. Spelling errars. (smile). It is fixed. I am suprised that is all I missed.

BTW, I will leave this thread open so that anyone that has a question about these rules can ask here or can state their purpose here.

Quite honestely, I DO!!!

But with me, you're safe, you know what I am, how I am, how far I go, and you know I know where the line is, unlike many here.
