Toby I think you should reconsider. There in no reason to ban somebody only because he posted some photos. For me it's not advertising, its info, the product was released and advertised enough by Best.
If I want to test the kite, I know who to contact or where it can be tested.
I can find similar posts on the main page from other companies.
As the Germans say" Hand aufs Herz"! Are you not doing also at least " a little bit" of advertising on other forums like Kitesurfing Kiel or Oase ?
Your user name at Oase is even "kiteforum.com" and not "Toby", correct ? And as far as I can remember, some pussies at Oase also claimed about you....
At Kitesurfing Kiel, I saw already several times that when ever somebody asks for info about a spot you post " See Kitebeaches.com" or something similar.
I don't see a problem in that, as well as I don't see a problem in Stru's post.
The pussies who are claiming here have two options, they can write a pm to the poster or they can open a topic were we can discuss about it. But that's the problem with this folks here, lack of balls ! They prefer that somebody else does the shitty jobs for them.
Stru is one of the oldest here and helped to make the Portuguese section what it is today, banning him is not nice.
