1. Per AA rules I can respond to a thread started by another. Winston was being dumped upon because of his glowing review, but the MSA cord was more than a power cord and I wanted to illustrate how good a PLC it could be and in partial justification for his great praise.
2.In no manner did my post attempt to solicit sales for myself. As a matter of fact i received absolutely no sales at all. And as a matter of fact, I have never ordered any MSA power cords, so i couldn't sell it even if I wanted to.
3. I attempted to explain the use of the kegs, the principle part of the MSA power cord. If you check the MSA website you can buy kegs for even cheaper than the power cord, BTW, so I am not doing Bob a favor at all.
4. Please contact your pal, Awe d o File, and get the big picture.
5. Please reread Asylum rules also
"4. Please contact your pal, Awe d o File, and get the big picture."
That statement is so wrong on many levels. It makes me sad to read it . It points to fear, paranoia and lots of other not nice things. Stu, really? Wow.
The AA rule you are referring to (not the one you made up) allows manufacturers and dealers to respond to questions about their products. The problem is you were responding to the OP by Winston out of the blue - as if you were just another satisfied customer of MSA. You had not disclosed that you were a DEALER for MSA. This is called a CONFLICT OF INTEREST. Hel-loo! By pumping up the product in your rave review you were obviously helping (your) sales, at least potentially. It's not whether or not you actually receive sales. Duh! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. It's one thing to help out a "struggling small company" but it's quite another thing to pretend to help them but help yourself instead. Now do you get it?
The AA rules you stated are not real AA rules, by the way, you made them up to try to weasel out of your predicament. The real applicable AA rule (not the one you made up) is:
"A member of the trade may not volunteer any information about a specific product that he is selling or making, in response to a general request for information about a type of product or in any other discussion."
