I don’t have a problem with any of you promoting, supporting, endorsing or being affiliated with machines and/or companies. The point is to help others and give advice; you do not need to be neutral at all.

If people want to "plug" related products that’s fine to, as long as it’s done tastefully and what comes of the "plug" is a decent discussion.

I can’t see that Dave received any abuse; I can see that Kip gave his opinion and also his recommendation of an alternative machine. You then continued to support Dave with regards to the sieg machine John. Great job you are doing please continue, if you get some unintentional additional business from it that is Great and not a problem.
