As part of the debate to name or not to name a company I will always give what is my opinion and sometimes that necessitates giving out some details for companies. Most of the time it is just a name or a link and if someone is after "more detail" then they need to PM me.
All of this I do with a clear conscience as whether on the open forum or via PM I never pass details of my business interests in Malta. Those are the rules and I'm proud that I abide by them. I have other mediums for advertising.
Many times we have seen on here postings that are blatent adverts for the posters interests and some even get disguised as an enquiry as to why their business has not appeared or has been moved in the directory. I will continue to report such things for their removal but if say Hat, Magnusson, Twirl or anybody for that matter recommends a car hire or taxi firm or restaurant for example as long as they are not associated with that business interest then it's a legitimate posting as far as I'm concerned.
I accept it can be a very fine line between an advert and a recommendation.
Long live our unbiased forum.
