Default Post changed...cannot remove

I tried to remove this post, but that is not an option listed, so I changed it this initial post and removed the information about the children's charity.

Thanks for voting everyone! It is sad that people considered information about a children's charity spam, but as promised, I removed the info.

Default How is "nonprofit" considered spam?...PLEASE VOTE

Since someone raised the question of spam, I would like to hear your thoughts. You can vote if you consider this post spam or not by going to the first post. I am open minded and will remove it if most fourm members feel it needs to be. I play by the rules and respect this forum. My question is, how is "nonprofit" considered spam?

If several forum members strongly feel I should remove it, I will with no problem. I was just trying to help the kids out.

Could the rest of everyone else on this forum let me know if you guys think this is spam. Please post here and let me know. If enough people agree that it is I will remove it A.S.A.P.

Please vote in the post at the top.

Thank you for your time!

I think any advertising should be considered spam, regardless of the business status, Profit or Nonprofit.

Please sign the petition to lift the race fuel ban in Canada.

None of us considered this petition SPAM,I don't think.We all went in and signed awy.But when someone ask for money to help the kids all of a sudden it doesn't belong.Hooper,I don't think it is SPAM at all.If somenoe doesn't want to give to it,that is perfectly okay.But I think you did a good thing by putting it up here.Good causes need all the help they can get.


I bet if that money was going to help the kids or grandkids of the people who said it was Spam,that would change their point of veiw.Just my opinion.Take it for what it's worth: my opinion + $0.50 + a cup of coffee.
