    Who knows what the reasoning behind KK not being "allowed" membership.

    I have seen posts from normal, personal accounts (can't remember name) where they outright said they were a KL employee. I think it was in the KL Q&A thread...

    so could individuals from KK just do the same? Maybe the can't have a sponsor account but surely could just be on here as a normal member ??

    As far as I am concerned, there is nothing official from AHB that they have been denied.

    WEAL is the only one that has said that they are not "allowed" membership.

    Wouldn't be much point in an employee of KK coming on and spruiking for them that would be much the same as having a a free account, if everyone contacted admin asking for KK to have an account I still doubt they would get on, Keith has the final say.

    The reason the thread got deleted is because not only can a poster putting up porkies about one party or the other be sued for libel but so can the owner of the site. The court case is going to go ahead, so maybe this thread will end up down the black hole as well.

    Well, the point would be that they could have their say which is apparently being withheld..

    Is it possible they don’t actually care to have a say here?

    Just seems it would be easier enough to join or state you’re an employee and say “Hey ABC XYZ isn’t correct” etc.

    Looking at it from a business perspective, what I would have done is offered the site owners double the fee to keep the opposition out and me in. That way I am free to say what I like without fear of any comeback.

    In my thread that was DELETED, I asked for moderators to confirm if this is true.
    They, didnt confirm or deny, actually they never responded, hence the reason for this thread.
    I would like to know as well, why KK cant post on this site or sponsor.

    How about the moderators/ site owners please explain why?

    If its about money, just say it, then we know why.

    But risk loosing site interest and site folding.
    Happened on a fishing website I once frequented, it became dead.

    So wrong on so many levels, "without fear of comeback" just look at the "comeback" KL has received here at the hands of so called non affiliated members, so that's a load of old bollocks. Offer double DUH! site admin says no, takes money from both parties and ends up in same financial situation but with two sponsors not one (ever heard of all yer eggs in a basket) oops another load of old bollocks, really awful (lmao) is that the best you can come up with? Which point btw was wealy good? Nothing persoanal here guys but a load of shit is a load of shit , and this site is sinking in it. krz has a point about sites folding, nuff said.

    Keg King will be coming back as a Sponsor. I had to verify some information from the past before doing so.
    And legal issues are not good to be discussed in a forum, as I have seen them hurt various parties by clever attorneys.

    That's how some businesses operate especially when it comes to advertising. Another dirty trick is if a company pays out money for a stand at a show (usually about $2 -$3,000 depending on the size of the stand) the opposition pay out nothing and hand out leaflets outside the door, even using the organisers logo. Happened recently here in Melbourne.
