Well, I have no affiliation with DIY, yet you will see me support Simon where appropriate.
Simon is a helpful guy, and as such has earned some respect from his peers. I see nothing wrong with showing support and defending someone who you know provides a good service, is knowledgeable and will be around for awhile to service their customers...
Artvision, you are not the first to have noticed this, and you will not be the last.
I have personally been contacted by several WHT members, regarding the fact that anyone posting regarding DIY, is immediately met with a 'signature' tagged response by 2 companies, one of which is reseller-center.
As for fellowship: no.
In my opinion, it is a sales tactic, and a dirty one. I do not speak out about these issues much, but this has been going on for a while, and as is pointed out in this thread by yourself, it happenned twice in the space of a mere few days.
I feel it is only right that when replying to a post by a WHT member, regarding a "competitor", that the person should remove their signature.
Thankfully, we do not rely on WHT for our customer-base, although we do have quite a few dotted around WHT, at last signup referer count.
