A member of the trade is a designation of a person or persons who make money in this hobby of ours. It is a safeguard announcement to the members so that if provided with information, good or bad, from these folks, they can immediately recognize them as competition to other manufacturers and take that information with a grain of salt if need be. It also means they are restricted from criticizing other products on the boards of which they are in direct competition with, and it also means they can't advertize or sell within the main pages. They need a mall-fi ad or space.
All transactions made with an MOT have nothing to do with our FSF's. In fact, our FSF's are pretty clearly laid out as well, Head-fi is not responsible for anything that goes down.
That said, we will take measures, as with WilliamGoody, to ban individuals who are here to rip people off.
As for Drew, this happened before and he remedied the situation. It is happening again and we shall see how it turns out. Jude has tried to contact Drew. I'm not sure if he has been successful or not.
