I personally think that having a advertisment section allows others to promote their buisness and also allows board users to keep on topic.
Placing a area to allow Local Businesses and international ones as well can promote eSecureData in a good way and also allows the community to have a area to keep order.
Implementation of rules would be required dough like relevant to the forum or "Must be a registered company" or something like that.
Reason I suggest this is it allows companys that provide products or services to advertise them to this community.( Have I said the organisation benefit as well).
People of the forums, What say you! (I know What Say you is not English its.. poetry to say to least. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.p ... 0say%20you)
