Which vendors are on here?

Just out of interest - which vendors have a presence here? I've only seen Mesh and Evesham recently.

by Microsoft, although they appear to prefer not to post, and I can't divulge details of their login username or frequency for data protection reasons. Poweroid computers are here, and will in threads that relate to their company.

Other companies have registered with us, and no doubt keep an eye on things, but they don't post in response to threads about their products or services.

As we have said many times, we welcome manufacturers and vendors here, but it's up to them - we can't (and wouldn't want to) bully them into posting, any more than we would allow them to use the forum overtly as an advertising or publicity medium. There's nothing wrong with a company telling us how good their products and/or services are, but in has to be in context - we're not here to host "my computers are better than your computers" type threads or posts. That would (in my opinion anyway)tend to undermine the integrity of the forum.

Thanks FE - it is interesting to know that there are quite a few vendors out there keeping an eye on us. I can understand why they would want to do that without posting - they can read what we really think of their products and services.

On the other hand it does seem to be good PR for the ones that do respond to complaints and queries.

I shall mark this as resolved now - I was just curious (or nosey!).
