OK, let's unite and boykott the Pro Bro forum on RCU by just not posting there anymore. We have a much nicer place here anyway. SO DON"T POST THERE !

Why stop at the PB forum. avoid the whole place. After all how many of us actually go there to do anything other than GIVE advice. Why help the site at all

By the way..... Marc just sent me an email telling me that "theProfileBrotherhood.com" has just been censored over there... He said it was because of our "Sister of the week" forum...

What a ***. He was just looking for an excuse to give us the boot.

Looks like they just nixed the ProBro subforum altogether. Clicked on it and got this

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch

/forum/tt.asp, line 54
Reloaded the page it was gone completely. Guess there's no reason to be there at all now! :?

Looks like anything they can do to twist the knife a bit they are going to do.

All I can say is Thank you Billy and all the Bro's for stepping up and running with the ball.

yeah, just azn excuse to delete and an attempt to save face; but we dumped him before he dumped us. we know it. he knows it. he can feed his audience whatever lie he wants. if they are stupid enough to beleive he got rid of us, they need to be over there posing anyway.

I can't ask Mike, Dion, and John to endanger their livelyhood for this. Same as I won't ask Billy to go there and raise hell about Marc. It's not smart for them.

Well spoken, I agree 100%. Screw marc and RCU. But don't let the fever carry you too far. We left him, and in the end it will cost him. We have our own pad, we are good to go.

Let the rest of the chips fall where they may. The Bro's are here to stay.

I guess only OMP will know what percentage of the business they do comes from users of the RCU ProBro forum so this may be a choice they have to make. They appear to have good products at good prices but I fear that the $160 or so I sent them last week for a copy of AFP might be the last dime they get out of my pocket if they continue to feed Marc's bank account with their ad-dollars. I know that I'd certainly be far more inclined to give them my future business (and there'll be a good amount of it) if they show their allegiance to the Bros.

Hell, if OMP pull their ad-dollars, I'll give them some free ad-space on one of my websites -- that's good for around 25K impressions a month.

However, I suspect that even if OMP did pull their ad dollars, Marc would pretend it didn't matter one iota -- no matter how much it hurt. It's clear that he's been basing his decisions more on emotional factors than good business sense anyway.

Which is all kind of paradoxical when you think about it -- after all, the whole fiasco started because he effectively accused Paul of cheating him out of an amount of advertising revenue. The ultimate outcome might be that he loses far more from the ProBro defection than he might have from Paul's MoJo thread.

As I said right at the outset -- it's one of the best foot-shootin's I've seen in a long while :)

Hey, hold up guys. You can't ask OMP or any other co to "Pull their ad" it aint thier fault. They have a business to run, and they can't live off ProBros alone. Are you gonna tell Billy Hell he has to quit HL if they keep ads over there? Doesn't Extreme flight have ads there? Tower does.

Should we boycot anyone who has ads in Model Aviation? After all, AMA is a bigger threat than RCU to our flying!!

I'm many $ and time into a fledgling business of my own. I've built the whole thing around RCU as my main source of customers. Do you believe I should give up my aspirations because of this?

ON THE OTHER HAND......if you want to hurt RCU in the $ area, you need competition. And I don't mean here at ProBro central. We'll always be the 1%ers, right? So as far as site views, we'll never compare to the Big Guys. Marc won't miss our numbers, he'll miss the content we provided and the views that generated.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo.....if you want advertisers to leave RCU, you gotta help build up annother site. Annother "all around" site. Like RC Groups. I have a feeling that Mike's no happier than we are. He's said so on the Yahoo list. I bet if there were a place where he could get the same views for the same $$$ he'd leave RCU in a heartbeat (I don't know this, I'm just guessing)

Just my $0.02
