I report ones I see to MNHQ.
I hate the ones where the come on, rave about their product, then five minutes later a new poster appears raving on about how wonderful the product is and everyone should have one. You know full well it is the same person but they have just changed their name.
Don't agree with people posting links to their Ebay stuff either but hey that's maybe just me.

Hi, I am pretty sure I am one of the advertisers you are talking about. I did put a link to my site on - when someone asked for it. I also gave warning that that was what I was doing so as to not offend.
I have been a member of mumsnet for years now, and made a really good bunch of friends on here in one of the prenatal and postnatal forums. They were all really supportive when I had some devastating stuff happen in RL as were my RL friends. However I needed time to get myself together and haven't posted for a long time.
My RL friends were fantastic in supporting my new little business too, and so I thought about giving my pals on mumsnet the same option. I don't expect people to buy from me just to show support but if they like the products and buy the brand anyway then I'd love it if they bought from me.
My business has helped me gain confidence in myself that I lost when the shit hit the fan. I enjoy what I do, and my intention was not to offend any one - so my sincere apologies if I have.

Oooh you had me going for a minute there. But my ads, which you all LURVED so much, are paid up and not only that, they're pretty damn classy AND I paid MN a fortune for 'em. Justine now bathes in the tears of flamingoes, collected at dawn by the singing children of the Waiguatinotino tribe.

I think it's wrong if someone is on here to make a buck, regardless of whether they have bothered posting anywhere else.
BUT I think genuine Mumsnetters should be able to post freely to their ebay stuff. After all it's not a business, it's just easier than posting 10 photographs on here. If you are only going to make 20.00 then why would you pay 30.00 or whateve the going rate is......I have only done it once mind you and made a grand total of 17.00.
