Hi Guys

We seem to have a Section Called "Vendor Deals"
This appeared last April and is somewhere for "Vendors" to post stuff

https://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums/showthread.php/vendor-rules-183218.html

Various people are reporting this as SPAM - and I thought it was until I read the rules

So my question is

Do we "The Members" want to have this section or do we ask the Site to remove it?

Vendor deals posted by bots and masquerading as grassroots commentary, no. (err, no to keeping it, yes to removing it)

Actually, just in general, no.

I was going to ask, in the 18 months that it's existed, what has been the usual content? But then I checked and... none. Just this one spammer.

I'm guessing our owner was hoping for this to exist as part of a package advertising deal. "Our 40 forums have vendor info to reach customers directly...".

I mean, if Vertical Scope is going to do something, I'd rather that they get the garage section back (coming up on 4 months this Sunday!) than get rid of this, but, meh. Most of the forums should be merged in my opinion.

I think I understand the intent, which is good. It appears that there is no effective process to keep out irrelevant crap, and if that makes this section a problem for moderators then it would make sense to me to delete it.
