I'm gonna copy/paste the comment that I made on another thread with a similar topic to my thread here because I to have noticed that "New Members" are popping up left and right with company information recommendations; all I gotta say is that if you're a vendor, just be upfront please:
Yup, I've been noticing that alot; personally, I give it no attention. My silence is my response to your solicitations.
I've said this before I'll say it again, it's just sad to see where this forum has ended up sometimes. I remember when i first became a member, this forum was a freeway of information being exchanged, photos being posted and vendor information being discussed. But back then, we were primarily talking Wagmans, Laniks, Indique, EP, even Lugos from time to time, lol. And it was no big deal...You bought your hair, you announced your install, you posted your photos, you gave your 2 cents and you kept it moving. Now, it's an eyebrow raising match every time someone posts a review. Most times it's rightly so, but sometimes I just find it frustrating and an interupption of the reason why I'm here in the first. In my case, I'm not a newbie to BHM, but I am a newbie to Virgin Hair because I've never used it before and quite frankly the way things are going, some days I feel like going down to my local BSS and buy 2 packs of hair and call it a day because I can't be bothered with this Virgin hair market sometimes!!!! Geesh.
It's either they're buying approval from Gurus or their soliciting in every nook and cranny that social networking or forums can offer. I even see hair vendors posting their advertisements WITHIN You tube channel's comments boxes!!! I'm like WOW, that's fresh.
So, after all my rambling, my point is that I can see through the soliciation attempts and quite frankly, if you come correct and have a good product, go for it, but do it the right way and be upfront. I'm no hater, I'd love to know a good company, but there is so much messiness going on that it makes it hard to find the genuine good ones. When I see these impersonators pose as members on here, I just ignore.
As for the tip to use the google search, no problem, I'll try that right now. :) I can't wait to try a virgin hair vendor so I can start posting some reviews and hopefully help a newbie the same way that I need help now. The last time I did a review it was for some BSS Sensual Mink Yaki hair, lolllll. Yes, so long ago. But seriously, I wanna see BHM back to the way it used to be: the information highway of all things hair/weaves, not this solicitation pit stop that some people have been using it to become. That way people can feel comfortable to post here and not looked at with a stiff eyebrow each time they post a question or comment. I see both sides of the street. I agree that it's shady when vendors come here and pose like members every other day, but I also feel sorry for a newbie who really may have a question and just doesn't know the ropes yet. Just sayin'!
