When I try to type in certain websites to inform others of resouce information, the words I type are consistently changed and the website listed is competitor.com instead of what I typed. I think you have a key logger or adware virus on your server.

for what it's worth, the ARFCOM site has been down hard.

it changes it to 'competitor' because that company is considered a cometitor of www.swfa.com.

 

SWFA sponsors and runs this site.

 

I would do the same thing, if i were them.

That's their business, of course, but it changes the information I was trying to impart making it useless for me to try. I just quit using it.

there are ways around it if you type (competitor) it wont work but if you type m-i-d-w-a-y it will, no virus i dont think it allows c-a-b-e-l-a-s either.

Maybe tenguage and pryro6999 are not aware of our simple rules, we only have a few and they are easy to understand and we feel that they are completely reasonable.

 

We are pretty easy going and just ask for mutual respect.  If you want to post something like, "I was at Cabela's the other day and saw a really cool bow", we would have no problem.  The rule was only recently implemented due to relentless posts from which I assume to be people actively involved with the competitors that they were continuously linking and referring to in a "spamish" manner.
