Once a company is banned are they always banned?

Recommended Posts

As the title states, if a company or pro/field staff spam the boards early on and get the dreaded *****, can they recover their status on here so that they can be discussed. For some of us newer users, we like to use this site to gather info, and weren't around to witness what got companies banned, so being able to talk about all or almost all options would be awesome.

 

As an aside I think it has been asked for before a naughty list would be nice so we know what not to mention, but I guess that could be seen as highlighting those businesses so I assume it would be a no go.

I'm relatively new here on this fine website and forum, need to learn more about this issue.

 

On one topic recently, can't recall the nature of it, but people were talking about their "favorites" . . . and I mentioned a brand worm or lure that I fish with. Later, when I saw my post, I noticed that the name had been modified with asterisks. I read the rules and am not sure what the issue is or was. And, I'm just an enthusiastic consumer, not a pro staff member or hawking products for compensation. I'll be interested in seeing other responses.  Brad

Thanks for posting the link, @Choporoz

 

It's pretty simple.  If you get "***" then leave it, and don't try to circumvent the filters.  That's when you're going to get into trouble.  I can't remember who, but a few businesses have come to terms with this, have actually turned out to be good partners.  Next: why would we put a list of companies that have spammed our site up?  So, give them free advertising via notoriety?  Nope, not happening.  We mods remove a ton of stuff that is just spam, and work our butts off to keep things clean and unbiased as possible.

It takes a lot of work to make it into the block list; so a similar effort needs to be met in order to be removed.

 

If a company wishes to be removed from the block list, they can reach out to me directly.
