http://elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=173262 Yes Sykes used to be a sponsor, But isn't using an alias supposed to violate the terms of service? I tried to bring this up before about multilpe Sykes aliases, but of course, ET is sometimes very slow at getting the idea... He has been sprinkling his advertising in a number of posts under this new alias. Can you ban him, or else at least update the TOU/TOS that it only applies to most people, but not to nerve-grating, former sponsors like Sykes??? Of course, he will just open a new alias, but at least you could make an attempt to be fair..
