When is it appropriate to mention a name such as a manufacturer, a subsidiary company or a product in the UBC forums? What kind of guidelines should we abide by when a subject comes up in which one of us uses a company, a trade name or a product as a reference in our posts? An over the counter insecticide should not be much of an issue but a restricted use pesticide certainly can be a major problem area I would think, as an example. If someone were to write about the virtues of using a fungicide on Maples and someone asks what products are available, what do we have clearance to do about that? The best answer is probably to keep the subject out of the UBC forum to start with or use the UBC host to send messages back and forth so that other viewers are not privy to the information. I may be a slow learner but if I am to suggest a person that is growing clean Maples that I can recommend to others to buy from, it seems pointless in a way to have to hide that information from everyone else but I also understand the reasoning as to why it must be that way as well.
