In the past and just recently, we have been requested by companies in the coffee industry not to mention them in our forums by name or link to their sites. These have not been unfriendly messages but rather polite, professional requests. We have agreed to honor these requests in order to maintain friendly, mutually respectful relationships with them.
We have been following this policy for quite some time but thought that a reminder might be helpful for those who have forgotten or were not aware of this. Thanks for your understanding.
