Vendors spamming threads

I'm getting really sick of the following senario.

OP: "Hey guys I'm thinking about such and such a part or such and such a part"

memberA: "oh hey I Part B and I like it because...."

memberB: "I have part C and I like it because ..."

SpammyVendor: "We carry part B because it is the best and you should buy it from the following link: http://www.spammyvendor.com/product_p/rh2004.htm

Just drives me nuts!!
If someone is asking "Where do I buy a part" then you can post a link to your site.

There are other vendors on this site who will offer advice and never once post a link to their website and seem to be doing just fine.

Vendor raping is getting a bit on the strong side... I love when guys are asking suggestions and within 2 mins a venodr has chimed in with a link "buy this from me"


With that being said we have some great venodrs and rally cool guys here. The spammers know who they are and someday may realize they are hurting themselves more than helping.

You call it spamming, they call it marketing. Every business will have a different philosophy on how it should be run and marketed.

For those that get turned off by the more aggressive marketers, don't buy from them. Problem solved.

But obviously "spamming" is effective; otherwise, they wouldn't bother to do it.

They have a vendor section for a reason. We get whacked if we talk shit in a tech thread or anything outside of GD or Chit Chat. I think the same rules should apply. Its one thing to offer advice and help but thats not the issue 99% of the time...

I understand, but......

any yellow-star/ legitimate vendor here, reserves the right to post a link to their site/ product if they feel it to be warranted. Their solution may indeed be exactly what the OP is after. It may alleviate the OP's issue as well as minimize having to search further for a solution.

Since JKO has a pretty solid history of very helpful and passionate vendors, I would assume that if there is a reason why any member may feel as though a solution or suggestion is not viable.......that other members would chime-in as to why "product-X" might not solve the OP's request.

As a moderator, it is more frustrating to have to continually search posts, links, sigs, etc.....for actual spam or true violations of TOS.

Rest assured- this ain't JKF. If any vendor or member is indiscriminately or recklessly suggesting a product or solution that isn't viable......that someone is going to call them out on it.

I sorry guys..... Honestly I think the vendors around our site do a good job of conducting their business. I'm not trying to agree with STUB !!! He's a turd !

The Project is moving forward.

I'm pretty sure if I posted a reply in every single vendor thread telling them how insecure their website is they would get pretty annoyed with me.

But hey I mean well and I'm looking out for JKO members so it isn't spam.

If anyone is receiving excessive PM's from a vendor (or if anyone has specific concerns that a vendor isn't complying with TOS or is presenting inaccurate, misleading or unsolicited PM's).....then by all means REPORT IT.

I get tons of naked pictures from Marcus every day. It's really not a big deal if you just squint your eyes and scroll through them really fast.

I dont think they will need to be reported.... We will just have 12 Release threads about the PSC cage to go with the SR rigid lights. Its a good thing the manufacturer gets the change to do a press release first, oh wait.........

Spamming isn't the half of it! What about............ "We have it IN-STOCK and ready to ship!"

Seriously! You physically have it "IN-STOCK" when it hasn't been released yet! Just say you can ship it direct from the manufacture. Come on!

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.
