I can see Shotgunred's point of view in that Eric runs the site as a business and depends on advertisers and paid subscriptions to keep his head above water but I'm not sure the Ultimatereloader, (Gavin) could really justify an advertising budget on here. H really doesn't have all that many products for sale.
I do appreciate his site however. He does a very fine job of producing his videos and it's one of the few places when you can compare different machines and available accessories.
With him posting here occasionally it allows newbs and those of us who don't know as much as we think we know to be exposed to new products. Actually I think it compliments GTR quite well... kinda like a value added service which ultimately helps Eric.
(I wonder if this qualifies for a royalty check?)
