Not sure what rules you’re talking about — the one against vendor self-promotion? Or any self-promotion (including users posting their own blogs)? Because I’m totally in favor of those rules!

I am a pro-photographer, FYI.

BeeM wasn’t just banned because of self-promotion, from what I understand it was her tone and attitude.

Well, I know I’m not a pro, but since it is fairly clear what this was about… I think the person in question did what she did in a manner that was abrasive and mean. There are plenty of other pro photographers who explain, in much kinder ways, that yes, they have seen many a horror story about not using someone who knows what they are doing for their wedding and highly suggest a photographer who has done something other than poorly shoot and photoshop a few pictures of friends.

I think it totally has to do with HOW you say what you are saying, not always what you say. You can phrase something one way and come off an elitist jerk, and phrase the same thing a little differently and come off like someone who actually is trying to be helpful.

@USER876: Like the PP’s said, BeeM wasn’t banned because she was trying to give helpful suggestions, from a professionals view point. She was banned because of her poor choice in words.

@USER876: If it makes you feel any better, I think, generally, you are one of the pros who comes off as helpful and not an elitist snob. Though I think anyone with a brain can see this is related to the event of yesterday with the pro being banned.

I think you would be better off asking the pros through a PM. This is only going to cause more problems.
