They don't want you advertiseing or comparing TBBQRub with anyone elses.
Clickish ... far from it. Texas BBQ Rub is one of the best forums on the net. Help is offered to any and all that ask.
No body has to praise anything. If they do it is because the like the products.
Your avatar like many others got dropped when the board was redesigned. You can now upload your avatar and it will be sized properly. Have you tried that? Did you ask Blake or anyone else for help? The signature field is much smaller than the original. I lost mine as well. So I rewrote it. Whats the big deal?
There is a lot of comparing things. There have been and are rub discussions from time to time. What they do not allow is competition advertising on their forum. Can you blame them? Do you really think General Motors buys ad space so Ford can advertise? Come one ....
Advertising and comparing are two different beasts ....
