In regards to posting protocol:

1. If you want discussion and ideas exchanged, feedback, etc. post using the ADM Forum...

2. If you want to share your ideas, strategies, best practices, a story, dealer experience, management philosophy amnd are more interested in getting your message out, rather than feedback and discussion, use the ADM Blog feature.

3. No Anonymity = No Censorship (On ADM you MUST disclose your true identity, but your opinions and statements will not be censored, unless porn or personal attacks in nature)

4. If you want to post a sales pitch, be prepared for very negative comments. We do not reward members who delete comments posted by others... Alternately, you can post a blog and not have it open for comments.
