Yes it costs money to run the place but we have kept the doors open now for almost 10 years and whatever shortfalls there are I pick up. The recent thread about the doxa dick leaving reminded me of the iron fisted control the mods have on sponsored forums such as TZ or WUS. In my opinion it is self serving since to say anything bad about their product would affect sales which translates into $$$$$. I have yet to understand why so many adults are fine with that. If you do not like a watch or strap or underwear, why would you be ok with folks telling you that saying something bad about a shitty product or shitty service will get you banned?
Not going to happen here. For the newbies, we have a reputation on this forum, we swear, we talk smack about companies and personalities and even each other on a good day but we are still here and many other fora are not. A couple of those had some big $$$$ behind them. They are still gone and fora such as this one still thrive without sponsors although I believe this may be one of only a couple that exist without corporate sponsorship of some type. Come here and peddle your watches and such but be prepared to hear real world comments. Otherwise we can point you to some gentler and kinder forums.
