Requests & replies for reputable persons, contractors, etc. are permitted; lengthy testimonials about them are not. No political or spam posts are allowed.
7) Complaints & Negative Posts
Complaints & negative posts are not permitted. These types of posts are non-productive. They do more to foster hostility & ill will more than anything else.
