Among many of the blind spots ET has, is you can promote & market yourself as long as you don't do it directly. Many will complain and report this, but the ET mods turn a blind eye to this. You see the Terms of Service apply to SOME people. But others start threads, promote themselves constantly, "teach" and do article writing in the name of "helping." Now here we have a blatant example of spamming, yet ET will do little or nothing, and we will confuse "giving back" with "spamming, promoting & marketing." For example, today: under careertrader --> oneline mentor (from BRANDONF): I think that Bo Yoder has been considering doing something like your talking about, but we'd want to get a group of 15/20 people and it would probably be a $2000/$3000 program. It takes a lot of time/effort on his part to do it, and a lot of time/effort on my part also to put together the material to sell it. I just put together one for marketing folks, it was the first one I've ever did and I'm not a "big name guru" in the marketing world..mostly I work with clients and don't sell courses..but I couldnt believe how much work it was. It brought in nearly $50,000 for me, but I doubt I will do one again as it was a ton of work and distracted me greatly from everything else I'm doing. Obviously your interested in trading, not marketing..but the point is that it's a ton of work for someone to put on what your asking for. I suspect that's why it's very rare. Um, where does Brandon expect to get 15-20 people to sell to, except that he is really expecting some PMs and will of course, roll something out to "help" these people for only $2/3,000 each?? Since brandon USED to be a sponsor, apparently that allows lifetime privileges. Can EliteTrader ONCE AND FOR ALL, clearly list why some may spam and others may not? Odds are that the ET owners will ignore this note, and let it sink into oblivion. That is easier than enforcing the spirit of the law (TOS).
