Because of the recent use of ADM by what we call “blog spammers”, ADM now requires new member applicants to use verifiable and actual surnames. Actual real-world names are required in order for your membership application to be approved.
The ADM Community is a place for PROFESSIONALS to exchange strategies, tactics, tips, advice and guidance, and because of this does not cater to the general public or the merely curious non-professional…
The use of bogus and false information in your membership profile indicates that you are NOT a committed marketing professional, and the ADM Community is simply not interested in what wannabe marketing pretenders have to say.

made the ADM Professional Community different from other online sites is that members do NOT have anonymity, but they also are not subject to censorship. The concept being that as long as people are willing to take full credit for what they post or publish, and everyone clearly knows who they are, they are then free to truly express their opinions without being moderated or censored...
So, all the content on ADM is available to view for everyone, including tens of thousands of non-members each month, but if you want to comment or download files, you must be a member. But do we ask for too much information of new members? For example, we require that members tell us in their own words who they are and what they do within the auto industry... Is that too much information?
Tell the community what you think about this issue... Please.
log was "ANGRY MAN" syndrome. If this person is so enraged by what Yelp is, or does, or what people on Yelp post, then he should delete his Yelp membership and avoid the aggravation.
As I have said many times, there is no such thing as "Social Spam" from sites that require you to complete a membership profile and verify (double opt-in) your email address before receiving notices and updates.
Likewise, Yelp is most definitely a membership inclusive social network that thrives on reviews that are neither based on facts, nor directed by any other set of objective criteria. In fact, it seems that the "Yelpers" who generate the most obnoxious, outrageous, or even funny because of their ridiculousness reviews are the more popular people in the Yelp community.
With that said, I will also say that I am a somewhat active member of the Yelp Community and find it interesting and entertaining... Although I tend to regard the reviews as only being as useful and credible as the person who posted it.…
mers from joining. Any one of the 6 current ADM Admin Access Members can approve new member request.
Also, If you send somebody an invite from the ADM "Use Viral" member invitation page, and they use the link inside the invitation message, then your guest will be able to join without prior approval required before they can get in.
This move to block senders of unwanted spammy messages from ADM membership is certain to create unprecedented demand for ADM Membership Invitations... Not to worry, we know that the moral and ethical character of current ADM members is enough to resist any of those megabuck offers you are bound to get for membership invitations!
Thank you for supporting the most popular and visited automotive digital marketing community in the world, which is a non-Profit enterprise with all advertising revenue used to support site hosting and parties at various conferences, such as Digital Dealer!…
e and a working email address for ADM administrators. Although we do not censor content on ADM, we do not tolerate anonymous memberships... You can say or post what you want, but you better be willing to put your name and contact information behind it!
ADM have received several complaints alleging that you are "Spamming" members with unsolicited messages, and that you do not respond to replies to those messages. As much as we value content from all automotive professionals, if you cannot disclose your information, we will regretfully be forced to suspend your membership.
Hey, we are not asking for anything unreasonable here, just identify yourself and make yourself accessible.
