    I have twice posted an offer to give all FChatters a 10% discount on my Cape San Blas, Florida beach house which has been deleted by someone both times ? I thought the Off Topic section was where such non-Ferrari related post were to be made ? It is certainly more of a benefit to FChatters than the many soft porn posts.

    I didn't consider it an advertisement. I thought of it as a benefit to FChatters to visit a great beach and get a discount. After all, after expenses and management company fees I don't make a whole lot of money off of rentals anyway. And, if someone is going to rent it, I would rather it be a fellow Ferrari enthusiast . See www.capesanblasvacation.com and see for yourself.

    I saw the reported post log and several users were reporting it as spam. If we allow free commercial messages, then we'll get swamped with them. Everyone has some or several commercial angles. I usually let potential sponsors post one free commercial message with my permission. You know my email.

    I haven't had any posts pulled...........but I do think it's rather troubling that the board seems to be so "moderated".....if you don't like a post don't read it..........use the ignore feature.......even with "ads" does anyone really have a reason to believe this board is going to become saturated...........I've been on this board for a long time and I don't remember "ads" ever really being a problem or bothersome at all......................I'm for less moderation.......even "porn"........put a warning in the subject, and it offends you don't open it............if your kids "surf the net" then that's for your and your family to decide..........sorry for venting............carry on........

    Frank, lovely place!! Glad your offer survived the posting this time. Im already on the Gulf or it would be a great place to hang out for sure. You other Fchatters need to get down there and have some fun. Looks superb!

    Enzo, The Cape is about 100 miles or so East of Destin. It is between Mexico Beach and St. George's Island. The Cape is a wonderful place that remains an old Florida type destination. Like Sanibel was twenty years ago.No highrises and only two condo complexs which are both only two story I believe. So the rental properties are all single family homes. Quite wide beaches, sand dunes, horseback riding allowed on the beach, dolphine watching in the bay and you can still build a bonfire on the beach at night to roast marshmallows. Try that at PCB or Destin. Turtle watching is also popular especially in May when they lay their eggs and in August when they hatch.

    Frank, I think I remember reading very favorable things about your place from at least one Fchatter who stayed there. Maybe you should find the links in the archives and post those as a testamonial. It really does sound and look like a nice place. Perhaps if I get tired of the beaches in Sarasota I'll give your place a try sometime.

    We're excited this week about a Ridley that got back to Galveston to lay eggs. They were raised at Texas A & M, and imprinted on Galveston instead of South Padre to call home!

    They also trained them as babies to escape a shrimp net! That's pretty amazing.

    Sorry, as Rob said, there were a number of spam reports. I appologize but did not mean disrespect.
