Kim, do you happen to work for Twitter? I noticed another post of yours with loads of links to it. Hmmmm the mind boggles
Reply : Fri 19th Jun 2009 21:21
I didn't realise you can be followed in here - just let me know how or point me to a link where I can get more info
Jamie, no I don't work for Twitter, I just thought Twitter seems to be very "hot" right now and a lot of people seem to be using it, and many people who are on golf networking and community sites are using it. The "loads of links" you mention were all to pro golfers on Twitter, which I thought would be of interest to any golfers on Twitter, and as mentioned, I didn't even make the list, just copied it as I thought, obviously wrongly, that it might be of some use to members.
Feel free to delete the two posts I made, or the links within them, or cancel my account if I have broken any of your sites rules.

Plus you obviously linked to your own twitter page to try and get traffic to your site. Most people just see this as a form of spam.
Will leave this post in place so that people can see the new level of sophistication of spam links etc in forum.
And to clarify you also want your account canceling because no one wants spam posts on the forums which were pointed out and I guess which you wanted to do ?

As Jamie mentioned, the mind certainly does boggle.
I belong to almost every major golf and non-golf social networking site on the web, almost all of which my Twitter URL is either in my signature, or been posted somewhere, and never have I had such a negative condescending response from either members or forum moderators. The post with about 20 Twitter golf pro URL's, which I have already stated was copied from another site, had received a lot of replies on the other site, thanking the person (not me), for posting the links, so again, I simply thought this would be something of use to members rather than promotin my own site.
I run about 20 golf sites, most of which rank on the first page of google under their associated key words, and there are certainly much more effective ways to generate traffic to the sites then posting in forums. In addition, the site posted on my Twitter account is essentially a non-profit fan-site, which is why other sites have never had a problem.
Surely a much better way to handle this would simply be to delete the links with a short message. The reason I requested the account cancellation was as I mentioned, I have plenty of accounts on other sites and this is the first time I have had any form of negative feedback and really have better things to do then get in pointless discussions such as this. If I wanted to promote my sites on here and spam the forums, my 20 or so URL's would have been posted in every forum, a blog would have been set up with posts linking to the site, and I would have requested contacts with every member.
I respect this is "your" site and can run ithow you see fit, so you can cancel the account, or leave the post here as an example to other members. I won't be logging on again so you can have the last word for your members to see.
Best of luck with the site in the future.

A A I don't know why your commenting like you are, after all when this post was first done you were Kim inglis which is why I mentioned your name now your A A, what do your expect to get from people when your changing your name and continue to direct us to other sites.
I'm happy your 20 sites on the front page of google, stick to them
