stupid and lame

Why doesn't this site allow the use of links to sites other than xpaintball.com? because they are afraid that someone will find a better price?On their site it says they have the lowest prices on the internet. If that is true, why would they care if someone posted a link to another store? People usually buy where it is cheapest, so if someone provides a link to somewhere that has a higher price, what do they have to lose? I can't even type the name of any other online retailer! I think that it is gay and now I would buy anywhere except xpaintball because they are going about running their business the wrong way.

XPB sponsors this forum, and keeps it running.

Other sites that sell the same things as XPB are considered as competition.

It's not that hard to understand.

yes, but you guys just aren't seeing the point. If they have the cheapest prices, why are they worried that someone else would take their business? For Gods sake, I was telling someone about how a certain site gives out a free catalog, and the mods go all weird about it. And da\/e, you just registered within the last couple days, so if I were you, I would shut my fat mouth. Although you are probably so stupid that you don't have the brainpower to comprehend what I just typed, so STFU and go jack off in a corner BUDDY.

Same thing here- PBF is popular, just look at how many members we have. Xpaintball would want a return investment on the money they put into keeping this forum open, so if Xpaintball is the only business referred to on here then people visit their store and buy from them. That encourages them to keep PBF online and the cycle starts over again.

It's simple business. You support us, we'll support you.

More like, 'you sell yourself for me, we'll pay for your forum.' Seriously here, how much do you actually have to pay for this thread a year? =/ I mean, aren't these forums free, with there own links to off site stuff, and you give them a link to hold it upon? Last I checked, domains weren't that much.
