its not about creating a "special section" its simply about informing people what the deal is. as ana said, their forum could come up as a different color. or a simple head up note on every forum page, or whatever. information is key, and it should be available. it has nothing to do with who is or is not abusing their privilege, as that is truly in the eye of the beholder. you say MH is abusing his privileges, others would say he is the saviour of the world. thats not really the point. we just need to know if each and every forum owner is profitting from the very products they are recommending or not.
