There have been a handful of questions and concerns regarding the threads in the Sponsored Content, Contests, and Giveaways section of the site, specifically this recent post: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/651014/combine-nutrition-and-your-chickens-natural-instincts
I've moved a handful of the questions and concerns from that thread into this thread because they apply to more than just one advertiser / sponsor of the site.
We're open to feedback and suggestions as long as they are provided in a friendly and respectful way. We've been running BYC as a free resource way too long to be accused of being sneaky and dishonest.
If you want to vent your concerns in a heated, unfriendly, or unhelpful way, please PM me. Just keep in mind that we give a lot more credibility to those that raise concerns that do so with a tone of friendliness and respect.
Again, we love this community and devote countless hours providing millions of people with a free resource. Please keep that in mind when reviewing our policies and processes.
