    Default Opportunity for one of the scribes.

    There are many talented writers on this board.....I am not one of them.

    As you know, I run Raptorman.ca. http://www.raptorman.ca/

    I have tickets for every game. I'd like to have a short description for every team the Raps are playing.

    Kind of like:

    Boston Celtics

    The Celtics are serious this year. They want to win again...and soon. They have added Shaq to help them in the middle.
    Players to watch: Kevin Garnett, Ray Allan, Paul Peirce, Shaq
    Former Raptors: Jermaine O'Neil (09)

    You get the idea. I get a lot of mom and pops stopping by for their kids. Gotta keep it adult friendly.

    I get a lot of Raptor Fans on my site. Be a good way to get some traffic and pub.

    email me at [email protected] if you are interested. I'll want them ready by Oct 15.

    Is the original post on this thread spam?

    Sure reads like it to me.

    Spam??? Hello??
    It seemed that way to me.

    1. Link to website selling Raptors tickets.

    Do you make a profit off of sales through that website?

    Sure seems like spam to me.

    There was no need to link to those URLs.

    There was no need for your sales pitch at the bottom of your post.

    If all you were doing was looking for writers you could have typed out the request without including what you did and suggesting that if any posters were interested in it that they could send you a private message and you would provide them all the details.

    He didn't make the post.

    You can show him the posts here if you like.

    Personally I could care less if you spam.

    I was pointing it out to try and be helpful

    You choose to get defensive over my comments.

    Fair enough. That is your right

    I said my piece on this.

    Chill out Buddah, Raptorman is well known and a friend to Doc and the rest of us here at RRF. He offers a great service to Dino fans and as far as I know there is no issue with him linking to his website here.

    14 post per day on RR, 60+ on Twitter could be considered spam as well.

    I had the oppourtunity to meet Raptorman a couple of years ago when he was ever so gracious to dole out a few tickets to me for free. He's a standup dude and his tickets are decent. I'd recommend buying from him for sure.

    Ps - I don't know how he makes money sometimes because his prices are cheap, and if he does make money on his tickets, it's marginal.

    ya, buddah. you are kind of coming of strong in your comments, that even offended me a bit readig it. so, how can it not be taken offensively?

    i def. think he was just saying his thing there was no spam whatsoever, he needed to provide his email and website in order for people to know how to contact him.

    as for raptorman.ca never heard of it. so not as you know, cause i don't. what is it?

    Wow...just thought I'd get a guy to write some lines about the teams.

    I am offering a link to their site (RR is fine) after every description.

    Really, I'm not so bad at writing. I could do this. Just thought I would throw it out to RR and the Raptor community as there are lots of writers here.

    I'd gladly flip the person a pair of tickets. A game I am going to and we can hang for a game.
