Anyone @ Autoforums "Proof Read" Ads???

Just curious and not "bashing", "complaining"or trying to be "controversial" but this ad really struck me as being counterproductive to the principles that Team Camaro promotes............


<LI id=taw1 onfocus="ss('','aw1')" onmouseover="ss('','aw1')">Trim Tags Restoring a Classic or Muscle Car? Keep it numbers matching.
www.TrimTags.com



Any chance of having that ad removed?????

Re: Anyone @ Autoforums "Proof Read" Ads???

In the FAQ. How do I know if I need a trim tag?

A. If your original TRIM TAG is lost or damaged; if you have changed the paint color, interior color or style; deleted or added a vinyl top; changed your convertible top color; added or deleted options, you need a new TRIM TAG.

No purpose other than to mislead people at the most innocent, or hustle them at the most dispicable.

Some videos I'v made for youtube

Ain't buying that. No way. Plenty of "speaker uppers" here.
The guys who put those ads up don't read the forums, they just cash the checks.
And there's not one mod on this site who'd come down on anyone for beeeching about a trimtags ad. More likely they're in the back room doing the same beeeching, except the guy who runs the ads reads what they say there.

Re: Anyone @ Autoforums "Proof Read" Ads???

WOW this just isnt right!
SO imagine how many people will get ripped off thinking they just got that original Z-28 and finding out its was originally a 6 banger car.
Someone should be vary ashamed of themselves for allowing such a vendor on our site.
It goes against all we believe in!

Re: Anyone @ Autoforums "Proof Read" Ads???

I joined this site and paid my dues because I believed that this site offered valuable information to first gen camaro owners to preserve their cars and set a standard which all should be proud of! This is an insult to all members, Vendors, and hobyists that are here for the right reasons and take the hobby seriously!

Advertising of this nature has no place on this board as it corrupts and sends entirely the wrong message to the hobbyist and our youth!

To promote such a Vendor that falsifies original documentation is nothing short than criminal and irresponsible in no uncertain terms! Misrepresentation to this degree has serious consequences on the hobby and as such should not be exploited as it has been here.

This should concern everyone on this board that is dedicated to the hobby and that supports this SITE! That would include the other Vendors that ADVERTISE on this site as well. By allowing this type of advertising they are affirming and condoning this type of action which again is reckless and irresponsible on their behalf which is shameful!
If Team Camaro and its sister sites feel this sort of advertisement is necessary and beneficial to the true car enthusiast than it is a major setback and one that frankly diminishes the true values associated with this site and its members and true hobbyist.

The individuals that sucombe to these underhanded practices and tactics have no business in this industry!

If this some how black marks me as a supporting member than obviously i am on the wrong site and it will certainly justify who i do my business with from here on!

Re: Anyone @ Autoforums "Proof Read" Ads???

I wish someone could grab a copy of the link for us. We have been going thru all the sections looking for it and never see it. If its rotating with other ads we have not found it yet. Admin is trying to confirm that we are NOT allowing them as sponsors. I logged off and just came in as a guest and then I get the mustang ad but Ive yet to find the trimtag one. If anyone sees it, save a copy of the link to it so we can backtrack its origin.
None of us in the back room want to have them on this site.
