Notice to all business classified advertisers The MLP has always been very willing to help out our small business partners, who in turn have helped us immeasurably. We've noticed a marked rise in small business postings, which are clogging the Small Business section with "spam-like" material. We do have a Paid sponsor banner program which has some of the most reasonable rates on the net. As we move into being a “Big Board Forum,“ the cost of the website & servers has also increased. For those who are paid sponsors & other supporters in other capacities we wish to thank you! We will do our best to help you in the future. We have become a dominant market guitar forum & are reaching now nearly a quarter of a million potential customers per month & growing. It's unfair for those who are active & are supportive sponsors to be constantly blindsided by nonactive or nonpaying businesses. We wish to continue our ventures of growth & would like those who support our Network of forums to prosper along with us. We at the MLP will be looking more into this matter in the near future & may have to implement some new guidelines if the amount of these posts continues to rise. Please feel free to PM us with any suggestions or comments as they will be greatly appreciated.
