First of all the spirit of the policy is not provided when you log in to this forum - its an interpretation - I would be unable to interpret it the way you do.
To your first argument - I would agree if only the sponsors can provide the information needed - they can not in this case !
Secondly - I did not promote - I supplied helpfull information to a fellow fly fisherman - why do you think it was promotion ? How will leaving out the www make much difference ????
Nobody else seemed able/willing to help Marcelo - so I did, you didnt - you know of the Shenandoah Spey rods from the old Spey-forum !
Now where's the spirit in that
I will refrain from further comments on this - Marcelo deserves better !
