Thanks for the feedback. We do monitor the site and work hard to remove spam or unauthorized content.
PetGuide.com is an account used by our editorial staff to post articles and helpful information for the community. You may also occasionally see accounts marked as "Vendors". These accounts are sponsors of the forum and are permitted to post some promotional materials. All approved accounts will be designated with banners or badges on the profile to show that they have been approved by us.
We do try to limit the amount of posts and accounts that are approved as we understand that they can come off as spam. Our intention is to not flood the community or fill your feed with 'ads' but to ensure that the community is active and has information that we believe is beneficial. In the case of vendors, we do check to make sure they are appropriate for the site and understand the forum rules before they are allowed to post this type of material.
If you are ever in doubt, you can always report an account or post and we will be happy to review. If the posting is against the forum rules, we will ensure the posting is removed.
