Are Dragon Promotions and Vivian Villareal gold members? One hundred percent of their posts are blatant advertising. Literally 100% of them. I don't see their stuff getting removed though. And that is just two names out of many that could be pointed out.

Yet this guy comes on here and is very borderline advertising at best, is actually contributing heavily to the forums, he is answering questions and providing quality information, he is being helpful to our members, is respectful--yet his very first thread gets yanked where he is contributing. He was unfairly targeted and treated very differently for whatever the reason, possibly because he is a foreigner and it isn't "American" pool like what Charlie Williams and Vivian Villareal advertise? Maybe there is another explanation as to why he was treated so differently but I'm not seeing it it.

Agreed. That was an interesting thread with new information. Meanwhile Vivian relentlessly spammed this forum for months with no repercussions.

Wait so all you have to do to get a thread deleted around here is simply turn it into a commercial promotion while not a gold member. Previously I thought that all threads were permanent based upon my asking to have two of my own threads deleted previously then posting separately asking why the users do not have the ability to delete their own threads. Even the responses to that were pretty brutal.

Pool table - Diamond Pro-Am 7' (Blue Label 2016) Pro-cut Pockets
Cloth - Simonis 860 HR, Tournament Blue

Hi,I`m a employee of JOY Billiards,and why my thread has been deleted? - 06-20-2017, 07:02 AM

I sent a personal message last week to Jerry asking about the decision to make the particular comments towards the OP that he did and take the position he (they) did regarding this thread and the employee of Joy ----

Basically, (and I summarize) that Joy was a direct competitor of other "paying manufacturers" and it would be a disservice to them by allowing this type of thread.

My opinion -- there's a Big difference between an employee enthusiastically promoting his passion and preferred table (yes, the one he works for) over paying manufacturers (such as Rasson for an example) not getting involved at a personal level here on the forum --- and throwing their money around by way of paid spots.

I wonder if an employee of Brunswick or one of the other hundreds upon hundreds of other pool table manufacturers gets on board AZB and does something similar.

Hmmm - maybe we'd have more people promoting this game.

Sad days here on AZB when this sort of thing happens.

So you didn't actually read his responses I suppose. He was asked many questions about the game and equipment and the only info he provided were links to where to buy the baby snooker tables, from JOY, who don't own the game, but do sell the tables. He was an employee of JOY, as he admitted, and probably one who gets sales commission, which he did not admit. He did nothing BUT advertise, and Mike and Jerry provided him ample opportunity to continue, professionally, before kicking his ass off.

This guy should get a free roll?....their business is a bit bigger than CJ's.
Far more examples of the other side of the coin on here. For sale is full of people that sell competing products on a regular basis. Aiming forum , as well as the cue building products are also.

If the rules are the rules then all should be held to them.

How else?

No one pays to use AzB or 99% of other sites.
People use a site for free, then complain when it places ads, goes down or has a glitch in the system.
How do you think websites are operated?
By little elves that come in each night and pay for it with pixie dust?

AZ is very kind to small dealers....I took a gold membership because of my sig lines....
...but I wasn't coerced...it just seemed the right thing to do.

But Joy is a big company....so is Rassson and Diamond.....just took a quick look at Buzz..
..Rasson and Diamond has ads there....Joy doesn't.

I'm sure that if the OP started a Chinese Eight-ball thread...it would be well recieved...
...by us and AZ....he could mention that he works for Joy,,,,no feathers ruffled.


Lionize your game.

I don't agree with how you viewed his interactions but for the sake of argument let's say you are right. Vivian Villareal advertised even more blatantly, more relentlessly, and unlike the OP she contributed absolutely zero in return. Do you think she (and all the rest of the people doing the same thing as her and the OP) should have also been forced to get a gold membership or have her thread deleted?
