You didn't ruffle my feathers... but you still don't seem to understand the difference between 'FREE Advice' and 'Direct Marketing'.
You do spend your time giving advice and teaching others 'how to'... but your business, or at least parts of your business, are built on providing supplies to DIY'ers. Your advice is direct marketing for the products you sell. That is NOT wrong, there is absolutely no shame in that, but it is beneficial to you in a way that should be easy to measure and monitor.
Nobody is posting in 'Ask The Boot Guys' in order to spend $$$ with the folks who reply, you can't mail someone a '6th toe punch'. Sure, others read the posts and are effected, but you have to admit that it's a different game than what you're playing.
