Seriously. Â Boards like this one are more influential than you might think - both recommendations and slams are from genuine enthusiasts rather than generated by some marketing department, and I think people really like that. Â Customers would rather take the recommendation of someone who uses their hard earned money to buy the product than that of someone who is being paid by Kiton/Prada/The Gap to sell product and image. Â The non-commercial aspect of this board is a huge selling point. Â And the slightly "underground" (ugh, hate that term) feel of the forum is authentic. Since we have contributing members already... how does the forum feel putting a very simple notice in some very carefully selected publications? Â I'm going to p.m. J and Steve about this separately, but would like to hear what others think. Â And do tell me if I am totally out of line with everyone's elses feelings.
