Should T2W have a separate sub forum for commercial posts/vendors?

Just checked out the link provided.

A very high probability shill posts. Post #1.

From post #2 it's clear it's a scam, whatever.

Where exactly is there a problem with how that got dealt with? It was murdered in the womb quick as a flash. As they pretty much always are.

The fact that a few of you manage to carry it on for X posts discussing the spelling, grammar and thuggy prose style is a separate issue and I’m all for the lulz, but don’t kid yourselves you’re doing a public service to t2w or that this indicates any lack in the current handling of vendors.

No newbies were harmed in the killing of this attempt at covert vending. However, hundreds have probably been put off for good by the hundreds of vacuous posts that have absolutely nothing of interest in relation to trading.

do you think it acceptable for a vendor to have a thread to answer questions about their product.
The other place has "The Monkey Cage" where posts from monkeys are quarantined. Its a very good idea, in fact, its a work of pure genius.

If you wish to remove the thread, that is fine. It was a thread properly conceived on the basis of removing the misconceptions of mis-informed people about the largest independent private prop trading firm in UK, with answers from FUTEX, not just random conjecture from subscribers (may of them who were rejected from Futex).
We believe we can give the best and most accurate answers, which may be beneficial to many of your readers

Make your mind up, you were accusing us of being 'randomly vacuous bashers of non-existent vendors' a minute ago.

OK. OK. You win. I’ve made my mind up.

You're all doing a fantastic job for t2w and the staff and admin need to be doing far more to assist you in your selfless endeavours and it certainly wouldn’t hurt for them to show their appreciation for your valiant efforts (iPads, stuff like that).

jon - could you please set up a vendors-only thread and hang a little sign on the front of t2w saying that covert vendors can't be covert anymore and they have to post in the vendors-only thread. Also, make pboyles & co. vendor-squad mods. They can then patrol the boards (covertly of course) and hunt down potential vendors by using word-pattern searches and secure covert personality profiling.

Of course, we’ll lose a few genuine posters in the ensuing Kristallnacht, but God will know his own and it will keen them busy (and hopefully not posting)…

I really am out this time.

ok - but ignoring how it developed (and that's probably moderators' fault) do you think it acceptable for a vendor to have a thread to answer questions about their product. We're a bit haphazard on this at the moment - allowing some and not others.

Maybe we should differentiate between registered and regulated brokers where if we have any complaint we could go to the regulatory body and between other vendors who can disappear in an eye blink .

Not all the vendors are the same.

:idea::idea::idea:What about having a sub forum with vendors who have at least 3 year track record of being consistently profitable traders?

That would create a lot of traffic and boost the genuine vendors business.

I reckon all the vendor fanboys have plans of becomming vendors themselves once the casino doesn't pay off.

absolutely spot on Mr hare.

You are right about politicians. Politics is too abstract a concept for most people, and there's too much apathy.

But how would you feel if anyone could set up a course on how to conduct open heart surgery, and the graduates of those courses, where then deemed to be qualified work in hospitals, operating on members of the public.

Would that be OK for you, or would you prefer that there was some degree of regulation, where surgeons where required to study in accredited institutions, taught by people who actually had experience of treating live patients ?

In one case, you risk losing your life, and in the case of a trading vendor, you only risk losing your wealth.

The argument is a bit pointless really because its self evident that anyone who can trade, has absolutely no need to sell anything, let alone deal with dunces who are too thick to work things out for themselves. Its the same argument that you'd apply to politicians, anyone who craves power, isnt by definition a suitable person to wield that power.

Hi Bedsit, I like you thinking however I don't think many vendors would be prepared to have their live trades audited for 3 years.
