Hi I?m Paul Marley Manager of LosGigantes.com you all know where to find the office and most will have my number.
This is the first time I have ever felt the need to post anything in response to a string, but some items need to be cleared up.
1. This is a commercial web site, we do not allow, as a general rule, links to any other commercial site and even the owners of the site in question have acknowledged this.
2. Had we been approached by another site for a link we would have considered it - we were not.
3. We have always shown consistency with the removal of commercial links.
4. With regard to the sting mentioned on Power Fm we allowed this to run after pointing out to the management of the station that the string existed, and as soon as we were requested to shut it down we did so, nether of which we were obliged to do.
5. With regard to story content many news sites carry the same stories, re-worded and re written, it is the nature of the beast, and on occasion pictures will be the same in several places, occasionally someone may have a unique picture and that will be used by others without acknowledgment, as has happened to losgigantes.com on many occasions with local press, such is life, for the most part no one worries about it, these are not commercially valuable shots.
6. Losgigantes.com has had a tradition of publishing news since its inception, however when there were other local publications doing this we endeavoured not to steel their thunder. Now that that the local area will only be served by ourselves, and one other publication which has been running for many years, we will be increasing our coverage of local stories that we hope will be of interest to the local community.
7. We try to leave alone all strings and keep to a minimum moderator intervention unfortunately the nature of the beast is Dammed if we don?t, Dammed if we do.
I leave it to all with intelligence to think about who some of the posters in this string are, I am not hiding behind any ?nom-de-plume? and to my knowledge there are at least two posters on this string that are the same person, who ever they may be! I leave it to your own imaginations! So I may be just talking to myself! Whatever.
It is late and I was unable to deal with this sooner so, if there are grammatical or spelling errors please forgive me.
I have now locked this string, as it serves no-ones best interests. If anyone has a problem with this please contact me ether by email email@example.com
or on the office number, 922 862713. Please be aware that I will only speak and respond to real names. If you are transferred to my mobile, please be aware that I will only answer if I am hands-free at the time, if not I will call back.
