As a moderator decisions over some things such as spam are not easy. I support Neilís decisions in this 100%. As far as I can see heís being as fair to everyone as possible and his willingness to get involved in such decisions is one of the factors that has helped make this such a popular forum and asset to Oz climbing. Itís unfortunate if you donít agree with decisions in relation to your post. Please remember all the moderators are volunteers who have other things to do with their time as well.

The issue of spam is not clear cut, hence my comment the other night which was meant in jest:

Personally I donít agree that whether or not the person making the post has a direct (or indirect) financial interest in the product or service being plugged should really be the deciding factor. If that becomes the decider then people might just end up getting aliasí and setting up threads very slyly to get their products discussed, and I donít think thatíd be good. Iím quite happy to be upfront about my own interests and accept there might be a few around who donít see what Iím trying to do the same way that I do.

Anyway, I think a much better criteria for spam is one of relevance and interest. For example, as a moderator I would have absolutely no problem if someone started up a thread to announce that they were about to start publishing a new Oz climbing mag because I think that would be of interest to many and would certainly be relevant. Iíd prefer to hear it from the horses mouth and by putting it on a public forum they take the risk itíll get negative comments. On the other hand I think endorsements for one bit of gear over another are essentially worthless when we donít know if people interests are being disclosed (and might as well be deleted).

Like I said, itís not a clear cut issue, opinions will vary. I think weíre getting by OK.

Hey Josh, donít forget to send us your invoice for plugging my new book the other day.

Were cutitng you out of the deal Simon. Holland Press is giving us 50% of all profits generated if we keep
plugging your book online. I think you might only get 1% of the rest of the profits after Boniwell gets his
Chockstone cut. Sorry 'bout that but that's business.

FAAAAAAAR OUT! I second the 'chill pill' call whoever made it.

Well done to obsessedclimber for keeping the mind open and also his willingness to take responsiblity.

To those so intent on smashing him: What's the quote? 'Sarcasm is the lowest form of humor'.

Good to see the new thread created. Although the hippie sentiment behind the statement doesn't sit well with me, its always good to 'share the love' when it comes to discounted gear.

I recognised a good cyber-flow concept-thingy happening at the time and decided that my post was an interruption to a good thing, so hence the deletion. Yes itís rare. I wonít repeat the post as it was not integral to your theme which I am intrigued by, and the deletion was within minutes of posting so itís within the mod-proposed time-limit for editing!

>did I mention 'herr-a-tige ?...
Nein, or should that be nicht?
LOL

Since you have quoted me I feel a need to clarify.

>Another product plug with link.
Where is the link? I donít work/sponsored, for/by any climb related company/retailer, and I did not mention the store name. Yes, I mentioned a climbing brand name but this was at the time it was becoming a non-exclusive franchise.

>Would these posts count as advertising for Paddy Pallin and Black Diamond? >Its recommending cheap gear to other climbers (which I did with my post for MD) at Paddy Pallin, which to me looks like it would be in direct competition with Steve and Rock Hardware which undermines his sponsorship of this site (which my post does not). >Correct?
No.
Context ? Check the date of the post. I think you will find itís before Steve had access to retail BD gear Ö

>The threads I have highlighted above have no mention/warning/flaming for SPAM and either benefit the poster (or there mates) or undermine Steves relationship
(snip)
>the boys club included
?

Will it help if I post it now??

Warning:
I am a climber. I like and use Chockstone. I talk about climbing, and things that are involved with climbing on that site. Let the reader beware!
:P


I think the mods are doing a good job, and also think that a good percentage of your angst is from jibes coming from other Chockstone users, (you might notice that I have not been one of them?), Ö though I think the sarcasm (beyond humour) could equally have made the point without the abundance Ö
I respect your attempt to get what you perceive as a problem clarified, but I suspect that to many of us it is not a problem*.
(*It would become so without the mods and current actions).
Your integrity is intact. As such I wouldnít go and delete old posts as they were valid at the time, and any associated issues have been sorted.
I have no issues with your enthusiasm and awareness-raising re products climbing related, (as long as they donít look like a blatant advert), Ö which I think you have done well in finding the balance for in your posts.
