I would like to know how long @Spaceman and other DIY sellers are going to use official Soylent forums to sell their products. I understand that this is pretty much the only website where people interested in Soylent and DIY soylent can find information. However, the widespread self-promotion of Spaceman, who I see as the main perpetrator, is getting a little annoying.
I’m grateful for the DIY soylent merchants who are filling a void left by Rosa Labs’ lengthy fulfillment of orders. I’m glad that more people are getting access to soylent and the more that’s available, the better. I’m sure people can see though how disconcerting it is to see a competing product being pushed on the Soylent forums.
I think there should be one thread per seller at most, with a short description of their products and a link to their website at the beginning, and customers can post reviews in the thread, and eventually migrate to using the seller’s website exclusively for their purchases.
(In the interest of disclosure, I stopped lurking and joined the forums in order to purchase DIY soylent. However, after my initial post looking for a seller, I pm’d with @axcho directly and then used his then-newly created website to place my order. Since then I’ve contacted him directly through his website.)
