|Edge||Interesting that OP further promoted himself in the latest post rather than viewing the rules and explaining why he didn't abide by them.|

|poutanen||Came to this thread expecting some sort of freebie. 2 for 1 is 50% off (as long as you buy two) nothing free about that!|

None of that is at issue. Just asking you to not gratuitously bump a thread just to keep your business visible. You'd be better off putting your webpage in your sig and just posting relevant member-type posts. If you're snowboarders this shouldn't be hard. We're all addicts, right?
On another subject, personally I agree with Jed about the "free" comment. Granted it's a perfectly legitimate business strategy, but some strategies go over better than others. Ask Rogers Communications about their "negative billing" business strategy a few years ago. They added in a for-fee service to existing customers without getting permission, with the rationale that customers could "opt out". Completely legal, but the shitstorm was so big that they ended up losing customers entirely, and they probably had customers opt out that would have taken the service if it was offered the normal way. From a PR point of view it was a disaster, and I'm pretty sure people lost their jobs over it.
On the other hand, "Buy one get one free" is more candid and I'd bet that it'll attract the same number of sales.

Me and my wife make all our product ourselves inhouse and we never make an item more then 10 times. Our idea is to free the industry of the few large companies controlling it, offering more individual custom type apparel. Thus the name Free Snowboarding Gear. Free of large scale oversea production.
I welcome feedback, positive or negative, but one thing you can’t argue is our quality. We have had 100% positive feedback on all items sold and are the only company doing custom outerwear. If you want something or have an idea we can make it.
We are just two riders starting a company looking for support from other riders.

We like to support snowboarding-related businesses, but we have paid advertisers and it's not fair to them to let someone use this as a free advert site.

Also, I have nothing against someone trying to make a living in snowboarding, but this guy keeps bumping his own thread with one sentence ads without contributing anything... more crappy marketing tactics.
