There seems to be some confusion here about who represents Rollei as an APUG sponsor for the purpose of this forum, whether the German Maco/Rollei representatives speak for their US distributor, which is a legitimate APUG sponsor, and who is officially representing Maco/Rollei, and who may be doing so without making their affiliation clear. Until we can sort all this out, this thread is closed.
We would welcome Maco/Rollei as sponsors, but only if they play by the rules. Advertisers must be clearly identified as such. They should only post commercial messages in their sponsor forum, though they may respond to direct queries about their products in other forums. They should not use the forums to attack other companies or their products.
