  • Posting Brand of Product

    Am I allowed to post the brand of a product if I've tried it?

    I don't consider personal advocacy or casual naming of a brand by a person who uses a product or service as advertising so posting a brand or brands in a conversation, such as comparing Post Raisin Bran to Kellogg's Raisin Bran, is OK.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    ...
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

        I agree jns, the issue can become cloudy but if you have no personal gain by mentioning the name then I really don't see how it could be considered advertising. It's all in the intent. If you post a link however, that link will be removed.
