I seem to be reading the same message, more or less, on 3 separate threads in "Places recommended".

While not wishing to interfere with fair advertising of ones businesses, I am slightly surprised that owners are permitted to tout for business in this section. I have no problem with them answering criticisms but ...

[DJK. where would be an appropriate section for such advertisements? Might I suggest that they be moved to "Announcements"?]

And may I suggest that he be allowed to just get on with it. At least he is staying open offering some kind of service while the others are closed. Support your local enterprises or loose 'em.

If I were to start promoting my own business in "Places Recommended" I would expect that forum management would find this inappropriate. There is an appropriate area for "Announcements".

Well thank you Brian I appreciate your comments, its advising the few HERE what's happening to save them making any wasted journeys or not those that are here and reading are well aware of where and what the restaurants are for those elsewhere it won't make any difference would it but thanks for your concerns with my business.
Its hardly promoting a business announcing that its closed now is it.
When I do chose to advertise on this site I pay like the few others who do so.

I rarely go to Luxor for a meal, but as I like the Taste of India, I'm glad to know it is not closing. It's one of Sue's favourite restaurants, and we go there when she comes over on holiday. So I'm glad that Bombay has posted.
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Class act, a true class act performance here from Brian, perhaps the best so far I have ever seen on this site. Get your free L4U T-shirt from Keefy, I recommend the XXXXXL size, to ensure it gets over the top of your head.
