I noticed a few posters have gotten suspended lately for posting links to a provider who is not a MERB advertiser, and before I meet the same fate and get my own ass suspended, I thought I would start a thread to see if I can post the following kinds of links:
1. To a nonpaid advertiser who is practicing a form of bait and switch, to warn or educate others. Is this permitted?
2. To advertisers in other cities who MERBites might be interested in and will never pay for advertising here because they offer services only in other cities. Is this permitted?
The reason why is that there is a new bait and switch business model being used in New York City, and it is being used with enormous success and I wanted to mention it here on MERB. It turns traditional bait and switch theory, as expounded on by Professors Lionheart and Voyager, totally on its head. In fact I have only seen the rationale used once in the entire history of MERB, by the legendary Mike of ClassXXX who posted a justification for bait and switch, the only such justification I have ever read by any agency on MERB.
What is happening is historical. It is happening in the Russian MP venue in New York City. It's a venue in New York City and Toronto but apparently not in Montreal. But these are trends that are being established in the business in other cities and they may be copied in Montreal, or not.
I would like to post a link to the most successful Russian MP in NYC right now which is using this new bait and switch model. The model is very simple: post pics of similar looking girls, and have the girl who greets you look even better. This agency has now taken over the financial district of NYC using this tactic that only Mike of ClassXXX ever had the balls to try and justify publicly on MERB! It's working for them and the agency has become an underground, UTR sensation in NYC much like Nirvana became a successful underground "garage" band in the late 1980s.
Rules interpretations are requested for these reasons. Thank you.
