If this post creates a such a lot of problem I will erase it or I will as to the administrator to do it

Please excuse the double posting we have a minor glitch

The main problem for me is that you have disregarded the main rule of the web site regarding joining using your real name!

Beyond that if you are a company advertising then posting an advert in a forum like this is always likely to be received negatively if you don't introduce your self first ...

We might need to expand our rules a little more to cover such an eventuality as this, but in the mean while have a read through some of this
