Welcome to team gates guys! Been a member since 2001.

As part of team Gates you must abide by their rules of conduct, one of which is to never flame a product...

In any event enjoy the team, you are now part of a world wide team that represents car audio in a good light.

btw - part of being on team gates means that you do not flame products...

Hint: your avatars, while funny and correct imho, are not permitted if you want to be on the team...

I hate a few products with a passion, but you dont see me flaming them ever....


btw - I will be posting a link to this thread over on team gates' forum as an FYI directly for Alma....

Jon is sitting right here, but was too lazy to sign on and say this but...

It doesn't matter whether you are just saying you don't like them or all-out flaming them. There is someone out there in Team Gates that will like whatever product you are flaming.... which completely breaks the reason that Alma founded the team to begin with.

hense why i said i would still recconmend it to others, because i understand others might still like the company... i was happy with my product, but then i ran into a misunderstanding and will no longer use them. but im sure their products are still good

You obviously know nothing about Alma or team Gates. I've had the distinct pleasure of taking her to dinner with the rest of dBs and talking to her at length. (I've also made her, and the rest of TG, homemade key lime pie at SBN 2001.)

As to what you said: We all have our opinions about products, I like some that Alma does not. Ditto for most everyone on any team and TG is no exception. And as such, we can recommend for, or against, a product and state factually why, but that's it. No flaming of a product or company is permitted. The statement of opinion in a tactful manner in the spirit of debate is actually encouraged. :)

I dont like eD, and frankly wouldn't recommend the products at this juncture, however I do wish the company their best. I also dont like JL's stuff at all, however I do not flame on any of the thousands of "...w7 is god..." posts. I only try to illuminate fact from fiction and hype from reality on those that I post on.

As for your avatars, I've always taken the stance that if you have to ask if something is ok, then it is not, so dont even ask and dont do it. So to play it safe, make a more subtle avatar. If you arent' concerned with TG, consider this:

Right now eD can go after you legally for using their trade symbol in your avatar and not paying them royalties....

food for thought.

It was directed at anyone stating that team gates members can't give a negative opinion on a product. You most certainly can, but you can't flame. Obviously no offense is intended to anyone who thought that.

Copyright no, trademark it, most definately. Go try and sell some apparel that says Gators on it or Raiders on it and see what happens...

And yes, ford technically CAN sue you for using the word explorer without paying royalties. Would they, of course not, the bad publicity would hurt sales... But a smaller company going after an individual who has a history of flaming their products, most definately.

But a smaller company going after an individual who has a history of flaming their products, most definately.100% percent correct. I was contacted by "Lowe’s Home Improvement" (the TM term) because of a trademark infringement, like on Google, when you search my site for Lowe’s it was added to the META tag and page title (example (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&q=Lowes) ). My response was I couldn't control people using their trademarked word but I could log the users IP so they could file a case against them.

Needless to say Lowe’s didn't like that idea and didn't want to be black listed from my site so they left it alone.
