  1. the records written must be easy to read by all
  2. organization of items in areas counted

 I was under the impression that this site is for accountants that want to know what Accounting complications are about, discussions on different accounting applications, 3rd party addons, to share ideas etc.


I have seen links posted to Sage website as an anwer to a question raised.

So if you consider valuable informations spam then we will never know what solutions are out there for our clients.


If it...

'.. I have seen links posted to Sage website as an anwer to a question raised ..'

The difference that in those instances a 3rd party started the thread - Sage did not raise the issue and then post a link to their own site

This is pure and simple advertising and frankly it is surprising that the Aweb moderators have let you get away with this bearing in mind they are so 'hot' in other areas

Actually you have probably done yourselves more harm than good by abusing this facility - own goal; because a lot of this community take a very dim view of these tactics and if you don't play by the rules here why should anyone trust you in business?

I understand your argument and it is valid

I missunderstood the purpose of this service. Please cancell all and remove my name from your mailing list.


Thank you.


(By the way we deal with more than 300 accounting firms in the UK alone, therefore it was important to see the accounts point of view.)

 Seems that you and other officers within your organization feel that freedom of information is advertizing.
