I suppose those who sponsor officially this website have every right to advertise their goods. What annoys me is so called forum members who are salesmen in disguise. Example, ...bolt on chip tuners for diesel engines, fuel saving devices, oil and petrol additives.

Can this forum admin be more alert and stop this opportunism, because a lot of the forum "advice" is turning into one big on line "pasar malam". How about renaming "Forums" to "e-malam"?? smile_thumbup.gif

Sometimes difficult for Admin to identify those salesmen who post discreetly and indirectly unless the Admin follow thru all his posting. I believe anyone here can report such "illegal" ads to the Admin to review and decide, communal/peer moderating is far more effective than depending on Admin/Mod.

why?.....
It's like this bro, someone says "I just got this common rail bolt on tuner chip and it has increased my ENGINE power by 50%"...and the forum member is actually selling the product using the forum for misleading opinion, pretending he is a consumer when in fact he is a promoter.
No point in replying back nicely because the damage already done, con man selling crap pretending to be a punter! Oil additives, fuel saving devices, petrol and diesel additives, injector cleaners...all con man selling!
