If you are guilty of touting yourself on this forum and on the TA driver list, this is a message for you.
The 9 Destination Experts and all our REGULAR contributors will, in the very near future, be making up a new TA Driver's List. This list will be unable to be added to by anyone other than those that are genuine travelers and/or regular contributors and trusted members of this forum. In addition this list will be controlled by genuine forum members and any attempts to add yourself will be deleted and reported.
We are angry that you people are using our forum to promote yourselves and often sabotaging the listings of the many, worthy drivers who have been added to our list by the correct method (recommendation by the traveling public).
Our new list will be compiled by the regulars to this forum and will only include those drivers who we know and trust and have multiple recommendations by genuine travelers.
In other words, you will have to EARN your way onto this list by proving yourself as an honest, reliable, safe and trustworthy driver.
For any of our regular/genuine forum members, please PM me with your driver recommendations so I can start compiling our new list. There is another thread at the moment started by Frangipanigirl where you express your opinion about the format, content and control of our new list.
I don't usually get angry on this forum, this is my HAPPY place (those of you that know me, know this), but I am getting really upset by the amount of my time these touts are wasting. We all contribute to this forum as volunteers and we don't need our time wasted any more by these people.
