After clipping a couple posts today, I guess some people are unclear on why they're disappearing...or whether they should have been posted in the first place.

We have quite a few companies who help support the site. That's what pays the salaries, keep the lights on, and allow you guys to enjoy the content here for free. We appreciate the support.

If a company comes in and spams their product, it's possible that the post will disappear. While we appreciate the idea of a discount for our members, it doesn't overcome the idea that the company is basically getting a free ride.

Hopefully that makes things a little more clear.

Of course, that doesn't even count all the spammers from around the world who stop by to hawk their wares. That's another daily clean-up. Of course, we're guessing you guys aren't interested in phony Prada purses...at least we hope not.

Did you clip the Bolt Everywear thread? That was definitely spam and their gloves suck because there was no padding on the fingers

Here's how I look at it.

I don't agree with everything you do but it's yours to do with what you want, anyone can't handle that is just a long term problem for you.

1% of the people cause 99% of your problems.

Let it go man... a lot of riders prefer gloves without big bulky pads.... just like a lot of riders prefer to ride with goggles!

The message posted above is most likely my opinion and shouldn't be taken as fact....
