yes they are, zup. Unlike some fx is a genuine trader - and a pretty nifty one too - but now he's said that he's taking clients (if he still is) then he'll need to register as a vendor and we'll probably have to kill this thread. Give us a bit of time

cheers

For what it's worth I think I am the mystery client - I've said I'll put a grand in because I understand the volatility from scalping a lot more than most (being one myself) and won't get spooked by a 20% drawdown in a day...

Nowt wrong with different rules for different people... this isn't a common law system ffs!

There's nothing wrong with different people being treated differently at all. Its just grossly hypocritical of the sites admi and moderators consistantly claiming that everyone is equal, when in reality they are not. Just pointing out the hypocrisy of the situation (not that it needs pointing out, its pretty blatent)

ah yes, like Grey1, the guy with a website, selling courses, indicators and signals whose ... wait for it... "not really a vendor" but might or might not have a vendor tag applied "soon"

I have no wish to see FX's thread killed, I'd much rather see an end to the blatent hypocrisy that exists concerning vendors. The issue isnt if someone is a vendor or not, the issue is, are they a good vendor, or a bad vendor !

IIRC that wasn't the mods, it was a bunch of normal members getting their knickers in a twist and trying to babysit Grey.

For a start, take a look at the sites guidelines. I dont see any indications that state certain members may be excluded from certain clauses on the discretion of the mods or admin

Ive discussed this issue on threads and by PM with a variety of mods, until someone finally had the decency to start telling the truth, triggered by the Grey1 incident a recurring argument made in most of those exchanges was that members where treated equally and fairly.

We now know thats not the case. Perhaps its time that the sites guidelines where updated to explicitly state that certain members are more equal than others, and that potential members WILL be subject to underhanded marketing tactics by certain members selected at the moderators and admins discretion. I understand the commercial arguments that if you have a site then its yours to abuse as you see fit, but as you can see, Im not the only person whose spotted whats going on

I think its more a case of, do the person(s) bring something constructive to T2W or not. In the case of FX Scalper I think the answer is yes . Therefore it is in T2W's interest to keep him here and not alienate him.

that's about on the nail, ross, except it's the members interests we keep in mind, not T2W per se.
