    Mochiko,
    I think CvB might be banned from PS, or at least was booted out as a paid advertiser on the basis of shilling numerous times, even after several warning by the mods. Given the circumstances, it feels odd to have it listed here, or maybe that's just me?

    Seems like it should be apparent that this list is one of us consumers' collective devising. CvB meets the very loose criterion presently enunciated for inclusion on this list: one with whom at least some PSers have had a good experience. And I don't recall ever seeing anything negative about PSer transactions with her. In the time that has elapsed since taking administrative action -- which they did not broadcast at the time, the mods/owners have not deleted or edited PSer posts recommending CvB or displaying her pieces. Which I would interpret as meaning they don't feel their decisions should determine what we PS consumers do on our own.

    So although at least some of us feel strongly enough about "sock puppet" shilling that we would not consider patronizing a vendor who has been suspended/banned for such activity (I myself consider it a betrayal of the community trust & a troubling lack of business ethics on the vendor's part :blackeye: ), I don't think disciplinary action by the mods/owners should be reason for disqualification in the first instance or subsequent removal from the pinned list.

    You are all correct that any list of vendors on PS other than the list of those who sponsor PS are lists devised by members. We rarely have to ban a vendor but when we do, we do not remove them from any user generated lists. If members wish to, that would be up to you.
