Jim, this is really funny. I posted both as Henry in MI and as Spam Police. Heck, I have no problem at all with somebody mentioning a product that really works. I do it all the time. But when somebody posts just to push a particular product in which they have an interest, it bugs me.
Ask Brian(Tankless)Woods about how much grief he got when he posted just to try to sell his product. Now he just posts features and benefits about his product, and competitive products, with some info on where to buy or get further info. There is certainly no problem with that and he is a valued poster on the board. We appreciate his expertise in his area. And we appreciate your posts too.
But pure advertising does not belong, in my opinion. I am about the sole poster on one manufacturers board but rarely mention that product here. And I get no compensation from them--on purpose. So let the satisfied users post all they want. But pay for a site if you have something to sell.
By the way, I don't post my address because I got too much direct e-mail and I prefer to post almost everything where others who might have the same problem can see it.
