    Please don't. Let's not spread more BS stuff like this on the net than is already there. That's why I put the link to my site so people wouldn't bash this guy or post more BS like that online.

    Beth, please edit your post that you copied from my site. This is an Org's BBS, I don't think they should have stuff like this on their BBS. It cheapens the org's bbs.

    Sorry TT team, I never intended people to post stuff about that thread on here, that's why I listed the link to another site.

    For those of you that wish to discuss it on my site, your welcome to do so but don't post content from his site. I don't want to continue the spread of bad information on the internet. Their is plenty out there already!

    I'm not the one who brought the subject up in the first place. You began the thread on this BBS, but somehow you doing it is not the same thing as others adding to it. I didn't post an active URL, engines won't link it, it's not a big deal. I'm not editing it. I didn't do anything wrong. A couple people even said they would not comment due to not wanting to register for another site.

    That's the problem with the bbs side of things in this industry. Too many with personal and political agendas who aren't really interested in advancing anything other than themselves or their financial interests.

    It's time to move past all the negative history for the greater good of our industry.

    Hacks will always exist as they do in almost all forms of business. But we've got to accept that and move past it.

    Our goal should be to make sure they're the minority and they stay that way.

    Some of those with strong opinions about doing this should consider putting their money where their mouths are and donate to the cause, since this business/industry is their livelihood.

    I'm sure some will roll their eyes and look down on me for bringing it up and that's OK, but until all of us here have done what we can to advance our industry, we haven't given it 100%. For a few, that means investing time (and money), but for the majority it means financial and intellectual support.

    Put past differences aside and take care of what takes care of us.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Don, you bring up great points. The UAMCC is an entity that will help those that choose to participate. Personalities should be put aside for the greater good.

    Business owners that become members will benefit not only from what can be shared but through the power of unity can make things happen.

    Many of us will not have the financial means to dominate search engines but if we all throw in a couple dollars (via membership) we will achieve that on a national scale. How many job leads does your company miss because your website does not rank nationally for generic search terms?

    Many of us cannot get large scale commercial accounts because we are unable or unwilling to travel five states to get them. Collectively we can cover a ton of ground with government and big business.

    One of us walking into our local congressman's office to make a stink about drought restrictions or workmen's comp classification is unlikely to get immediate results. Hundreds of us pounding doors on a national scale? That will get noticed.

    Individually we can call, write, fax, or direct mail all we want but very few will have the dollars to market on the scale they may want to. Through the UAMCC and its alliances with a direct marketing firm, programs like Wash With Us, and the credibility to tap into media resources we can actually make a difference in broad scale public perception. Isn't that what we all want.. to leave behind the weekend warriors, the lowballers, the people that think they can just write a "How To" guide without the right experience or credentials?

    We on the transition team have watched the political maneuvering, the he-said/she-said stuff and the positioning based on whether or not they like members of the team. Honestly, we are over it. This thing is happening. This industry is ready for a change and many good people have given the UAMCC the lattitude to get the ball rolling. And for that.. we thank you.
