Why all the hush, hush? Clue me in Please!

Hi does anyone know which publication that other site with the really stupid BM is affiliated with? I am just dying to know...? I wrote and asked them and got no response and posted a thread only to have it immediately deleted, even though I didn't list any magazine names...

Why is this a big secret? :roll:

Publication...? I thought The Other Site was just a real estate business like this one.

That site is long-standing and has a lot of affiliations - some successful, some apparently not so. I get the impression they delete anything to do with anybody that competes with their advertisers, anybody they have asked to advertise that has refused, and anybody that used to advertise but has stopped doing so. I know for certain about the latter. ;)

It's all about the money, not the punters. It's nice to see this site is one of a few that is not like that.

This site is so much better

This site is so much better, friendlier as well. Went to the other site a few times and wasn't so comfortable with the 'atmosphere'...

Are you really a reporter (journalist), and if so, may I be so bold as to ask which publication you work with?

And if this is too forward then please ignore my completely nosie question. I ask because I did some regional magazine and newspaper writing in the States and have had the worst luck trying to break into the markets here.

Need advice.
