One of the things that makes BonaireTalk the great forum that is has become is that we, the Moderators, work hard to prevent commercial interests from flooding the discussions with special offers, bad mouthing the competition, and other non-objective interactions.

BonaireTalk is about people helping people, and we want to keep it that way. However, it has just come to our attention that some people posting messages offering assistance on BonaireTalk are doing so for personal gain instead of an altruistic desire to simply help out. In particular, referrals are being made to Bonaire businesses which pay the referrer a commission or "kick back".

So, please note that we intend on being vigilant against these stealth promotional postings.

The BonaireTalk policy against self-promotion, while banning outright self-promotion (without prior permission in special circumstances from the Moderators), also precludes, among other things, people from promoting services for others for direct or indirect compensation.

If you have any questions about this policy, feel free to either start a thread in the "Using the Newsgroup Software" topic, or sending us a note at
