I personally believe that manufacturers should indicate either in their account name or via a tagline that they are in the industry and where their bias might lie.

I have seen a few postings on here recommending things where it is not immediately obvious that it is the manufacturer recommending their own product.

It just seems more honest to me

POLL DESCRIPTION

On another forum, a manufacturer recently mentioned that his wife has asked him to not use his business name when posting on gaming forums...

...so that the muppets with issues distinguishing between an individual and a business don't have to struggle so hard to comprehend the fact.

What is the best course for a manufacturer when posting on gaming forums?
