Now just hang on a minute, toastie.

Let's just review what we've got here:

1. The OP starts a journal to record his purported learning journey.

2. In his opening post he sets out his objectives and it links to a separate blog.

3. That blog is very professional, but has some interesting content and is relatively harmless since it carries no advertising. Nonetheless the OP is warned against putting that link in posts.

4. It does, however, carry the statement "My name is Nick Elliott. I started working for an organisation called Tradenet who teach people to trade on the US markets. I’ve been here for 2 months now and I thought I’d better get involved and actually see if what they are teaching is actually 1: Achievable and 2: A genuine way to make..."

5. Thus, there is the suspicion that the whole exercise is a device to puff the services of Tradenet. Whilst that may well be the case there has been no advertising of those services and as I said before we tolerate vendors as long as their posts are informative and useful to members (in relation to trading) and as long as they do not advertise their services. Nonetheless the OP has been required to register as a vendor in order that members know there is background commercial interest.

6. So, as yet, there has been no significant breach of our guidelines.

7. There are many useful and informative posts on T2W made by vendors and I dare say most of them have the interests of the vendors' commercial interest in the background.

So why not just let the OP get on with it and see what he contributes. Again, as I said before, if it turns out merely to be puffing a commercial service then it won't last long.

cheers

I knew that one would make Jon swallow a golf ball!

Like I said before these guys take us all for fools, unfortunately for them more and more people are starting to check up on them and do some background checks. This is a classic example.

Like I say Jon - the blog IS an advert.

I bet you drink Evian.

You might want to put view a bottle in the mirror before you buy the next case.

Move along - nothing to see here...

Just a senior sales exec at a scam firm with his blog set up by their Head of Online Marketing.

All will be above board, I'm sure.

As Jon says - other than being dishonest, they have done nothing wrong...

Blimey, toastie, you are a purist

The boards would look pretty bare if everyone with some kind of background commercial interest (vendor or not) and anyone who told a porkie were excluded. Might be only you left
