Unfortunate, as I THOUGHT the forums were all about discussing.... coffee (and everything about coffee)?? Does that mean I can't talk about how much I enjoyed my Weetbix this morning as people may convert from La Marzoccos to Weetbix?? XD
Funny that, hey... I'm a member on a few forums spanning various interests, yet it's only one particular coffee forum that has constant censorship of anything the sponsors don't like. Most of the other forums cover costs by selling advertising space rather than the sponsorship model, though.
Years ago when it had just launched, I had a post 'over there' about Beanhunter moderated into oblivion because Beanhunter has ads and they might be for a sponsor's competitor.
All of which is fine, provided
everyone knows about the rules up-front and doesn't mistake the forum for a neutral, community-driven source of information, rather than a private billboard where endorsements are bought and paid for.
Anyway, the Baratza Sette, eh... I like the sound of those figures for accuracy - in fact I'd consider one if they were a bit more classic in style
