So OSO kicks BUP, and takes money from a paid OSO add?
I understand that they need to make money 100%.
But lets pick our battles here, BUP is needed more than this book on OSO.
I think he is needed on OSO, where is the customer service to work out this issue.

This ad (pic below) is on the right side of my screen, to order a book, - " Rhymes From The NIGER"

I would be very surprised if the other "Paid" Advertisors support this?

Double R, BAM, Nordstrom,

Really?

BUP was an asset to this place, can't see anyone argueing against that.
However, as members, there's a lot we don't see. PM's between him and moderators, complaints, reactions from commercial members etc, etc. We're not in a great position to make the decisions.

Personally, I'm a little surprised he didn't fork out the $500 and promote his business, I'd have thought that would be money well spent. Might be a lesson for other commercial members, there's a bigger market available to them if they spend a little more time dishing out some free advice.... just saying.....?

Niger is a country. ****** is a racial term referring to black people.

PLEASE, PLEASE, Somebody post the " Beating the Dead Horse " emoji ...
There are rules, BUP was warned, BUP continued, BUP got banned.
Nothing against him whatsoever .

BUP gets banned and OSO sees the most activity in such a short time span it has in a year......something to be said about that.

I missed that one - between the yoga pants and tactical hats I never seem to get anything worthwhile. However I did once get a huge lead on a Septic System replacement...

DCB releases a $700k boat and it gets 4 views. BUP helps regular people and it gets almost 12k views.

But look, this isn't Jeffery or Steve's OSO where people actually cared about its members, it's a corporate entity and acts as such. If BUP is generating business he should abide by the rules no matter how insensitive it seems, it's just the way it is now and in part why this is a shell of its former iteration. The amount of quality members that have been lost is shocking, but until something better pops up this is what it is.
