I think we would all agree that the purpose of mumsnet is to support each other in one of the most challenging times of our life - raising children. This is a forum where serious issues are discussed and where people from all walks of life are welcome to contribute.
However Haliborange, in an attempt to sell a product have violated this trust by inventing fictitious children and starting a discussion about the wonderful properties of their latest money spinner whilst pretending to be a parent. Am I alone in thinking that this is unacceptable and that it undermines the core values of this site. I urge everyone to consider whether this advertising should be condoned and and if not I suggest we boycott this product and any others belonging to Haliborange. They have shown a clear disregard for us, their consumer base & I suggest we reciprocate.
I'm not quite sure what's going on. I don't know that they are fictitious, or someone doing that Dubit thing that PortandLemon's linked to on that thread. Sort of like how your acquaintances might also try and sell you Usbourne or Pampered Chef stuff. The OP seems to have posted about other things too. You're right though anyway. It's wrong and a sneaky way of advertising. They got enough of a plug here from Doodle Do Chris
It's pathetic - they can't even spell "mums" properly.
"Activity offline will include handing out product samples to other Mum's, educating them about the benefits of probiotics and their own personal experiences. Online they will create discussion within their trusted communities, seeding key messages and answering questions that other Mum's may have."
