There's a lot of back door business being conducted here at KKF where some members are taking advantage of the system being paid for by contributing vendors & hobbyists.
I have implemented a policy that will place any member known to be doing business here into a usergroup that restricts them from the use of the PM system and possibly the email system as well.
If you find yourself in this group then you have a choice to make if you want to continue to do business here - apply to become a hobbyist, pro craftsman/vendor - but do not expect to be here taking orders and selling products for free while other members pay for the privilege.
I'm sorry for having to do this but it's truly shameful the amount of knifemakers who have used (or attempted to use) KKF and for having to force this sort of thing unto the community here.
If you're in this group and wish to discuss the matter please feel free to email me and I'll be happy to discuss the matter with you but please do not try to change my mind or explain what other forums do or what you expect you are owed because I will not answer those emails.
To everybody else, please excuse this message and it's ill tempered nature.
