    Great prices and it could save your life. The inflateables are so comfortable you wont even know you have it on untill you need it! I am not connected to them in any way shape or form. Just thought you may want to snag one of these!

    Um, you do realize that this type of messaging is considered SPAM, right?

    I have to admit, when I read the post I almost deleted it and banned you (our usual response to spammers). It was a combination of the way the post was worded, and your username that triggered the near-miss. But when I looked at your sign-in date, and saw that you were a legit member of the site, I left it. Joat is correct. No offense intended, just be careful how you word these kinds of posts. We have deleted many like it that were Spam.

    Our spam cops are on high alert right now because the entire Internet is being bombed by spammers from China and Eastern Europe. We've deleted hundreds of messages and banned dozens of spammers in the last few months (thanks everyone, for reporting them)! So if it's a legitimate post, consider wording it a bit differently to avoid problems. I would hate to ban a valid user by mistake.

    Be cautious of the auto inflate vests. They can deploy at a most inopportune time. I would not use one in serious white water.

    kgpcr,

    I think your intentions were obvious and thank you for letting us know about the product. Don't take the other responses personally. They were valid assessments of what your post appeared to be. I agree that it looks like SPAM. Perhaps next time post a write up about a product you like and some personal experience with it. A brief paragraph would go a long way to adding validity to the endorsement. Then perhaps at the bottom, attach a link for anyone interested. Safety on the water is something we all can benefit from. Perhaps it was just the way this thread was delivered, not the message itself, that was poorly received.
