    Sorry Mel. I shouldn't have used the store name. I tried to put chain stores, but didn't stick to it.

    It's not just you, Kristi. This kind of posting has been rampant lately. You know how it always goes in waves. Time to start cracking the whip again and get it back under control!

    I also apologize for using specific pet store names. I should have stuck with "big chain stores".
    I should know better.

    So are we not allowed to us the names of big chain companies?

    Not if we're saying negative things. Those posts belong in a different section with specific rules.

    Exactly. It was such a problem at one point that we blocked the words "++++++++" and "+++++" but it made it difficult to give links for products so we un blocked them. The rule is not just about complaints on those specific stores it's any business or person. Those names just seem to pop up the most.

    So it's fine so say, "You need an under tank heater, you can get them at +++++ or ++++++++."

    It's not ok so say, "Don't buy from +++++ because all of their reptiles are mistreated and they only care about making a quick buck."

    If you had an experience at a specific store that you would like to comment on you may post it in the Business Inquiries section where you must use your full name.
