"Just put your product promotion in the Gear forum, along side Caffin's tunnel tent promotion."
Don't want to accuse you of being sarcastic when I don't know for sure, but yes, that's exactly the point. If David had posted what he posted, word for word, in "Gear," there would have been no issue at all. New gear, cool.
But if you post in gear deals, you have to be offering some kind of deal. Seems fair. Now, David was offering a deal, it just wasn't clear from his post (you had to watch the vid to see that a deal was being offered). You can't really expect the moderator to go look at vids to see whether or not a deal was being offered.
Instead of deleting his post, David could have simply added the deal in the post language and there wouldn't have been any issue at all.
In the end, Roger did what he's supposed to do as a moderator, David made an inadvertent error by not posting the deal in the post (he is offering one, so he posted in the right place). Nothing really wrong on either end. So I'm hoping this doesn't turn into yet another mudslinging thread for no real reason.
And I can't wait to get my coolers and try them out. They shipped today.
