I think your missing the point. By constantly beaking the rules and taking every oportunity to push his wares, he wasn't playing fair w/regards to the other vendors who sponsor just as he did.His actions were potentialy limiting the options of our members to have access to other vendors and products because he was potentially scaring them off w/his constant self promotion and eventual outright trashing of his competition. It is exactly BECAUSE we strive to remain unbiased regarding vendors that he was becoming a problem.
