    Monalisa .... Welcome and Thanks for sharing your magazine with us. You've created a few threads directing us to it and it's beginning to look like spam. I'm going to allow this to remain, but please, don't take advantage of our hospitality. Thanks.

    :heart:

    Destee-
    I am not in the business of spam. I have a quality, positive magazine online that once a month (at the most--actually only twice this year on your forum) I announce updates to communities that would be interested. Your forum features various artists (poets, authors, etc) who could benefit from the content and opportunities within our magazine.

    I have posted poetry on your forum in the past and participated in various discussions---though I have not done so most recently (due to overwhelming time demands and deciding personally not to post all of my work online).

    I ALWAYS try to post these type of announcements in their proper place---and on your forum Web Sites/Technology/Business Ownership seemed to be the proper place.

    Also know that in the spirit of:

    Ujamaa (OO-JAH-MAH) Cooperative economics emphasizes our collective economic strength and encourages us to meet common needs through mutual support.

    I have directed interested person to your site. Please let me know if you still consider my infrequent announcements to be spam and I will kindly discontinue my posting here.

    Thank you,
    Monalisa, Editor

    Monalisa ... in my opinion, posting threads linking to the same web site more than once, is spamming a forum. Especially if all of those threads are still on the first page of that forum's main page. That's all i looked at, kinda scanning the pages as i move through the house.

    My note wasn't meant to offend. We generously offer everyone the opportunity to post information about their web site, business, venture, etc., at absolutely no cost. Doing it more than once seems a bit much to me. There are some sites that allow folk to post anything they want, some that allow absolutely no advertising unless it's paid for, and i guess we fall somewhere in the middle.

    I appreciate you sending folk this way and i hope that folk visit your site as a result of finding your links here. I want nothing more than for you to remain a Member of this Family. Again, it was not my intention to offend. My apologies if i did.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
