What do you think of the CAP banning frenzy?
Michael Corfman writes:
I've tried for a very long time to maintain a good relationship with CAP - after all, we are in the same industry. But right now it seems CAP has no further interest in having a good relationship with anyone who is not part of the "family" in the mafia sense of the word. You see, I've been banned from CAP even though I have never made a post there that could justify such a banning. CityGuard and J.Todd (Integrity) have also been banned. And even kwblue (also known as Affiliate Guard Dog) was recently banned from CAP for a period of time. So let us know whether you've ever been banned from CAP, and if you have, please share your story with us.  View poll

Hey guys. I've been rather busy the last few days getting a forum together. Now, how do I get people to populate my forums? Does anybody have any experience in this field? A few people I've spoken with mentioned that it's extremely hard to do so I've made it a mission to prove them wrong! Any additional help will be highly appreciated! read more
