First, just to clarifiy...
We do not allow other hosts to bash their competitors' threads in the Advertising Forum. Not only is it just plain rude and in poor taste, but it also isn't fair to the person posting the ad. That said, we are not going to save anyone from making wild claims. If you post an offer, you should be able to back that offer up (in a professional manner). I don't consider questions and discussion to always be bashing.

So you aren't annoyed if I report the post if I feel the original offer is being bashed?
I just replied to someone who apologizaed for reporting a post (as many members do). As I wrote them...
You don't have to apologize for the reports. Personally, I'd rather have a group of members that care 'too much' and point out things they see they'd like us to look at, then a member base that relies solely on the moderators to catch everything. Due to this being a rather busy forum, that would be quite difficult. If we don't see a problem, we simply delete the report, nothing lost.
We appreciate you taking the time to let us know that you've spotted something you think we should keep an eye on. We look at every report and make a decision about the post, or at least a mental note to watch the thread/member, etc.
