Astromart™ Sucks

Why does Astromart™ suck so hard? Here's one reason: You pay your $12, and in return you get "Astromart™ has the sole discretion to amend these terms of use at any time, to terminate your membership account for any reason or no reason at all at any time, to delete posts or ads at any time, and to use or copy material from posts or ads at any time." (Terms of Service 30 November 2010)

So, you send Herb your money, in return he can use your photos or descriptions of your items for any purpose, including marketing his own products, or he can simply take your money and refuse to allow you to use the site.

No thanks--I don't do business with thieves, crooks or liars.

Yeah, I agree, however, I still use it since they are pretty much the only game in town... Sigh...

BTW, you're right on about Herb. He's a complet Jacka**

Shocking stuff, really. I see CloudyNights has become a tad more popular lately!

And furthermore, I got a good laugh at your label for this post!

Just wanted to comment on Phil's comment about CN's. If they revamped the CN's site to be more current it would generate a larger crowd. Astromart has been around for a long time and serves a huge part in the astro community that no one else is either willing to or ready to compete with Herb on such a large scale. And I agree Herb can be a tyrant, but I also have to give him credit where it is due. He allows the "truth" to be spoken in the forums. Something that is heavily moderated on CN.

I was just banned from astromart, I have no idea why. I certainly didn't do anything to offend anyone, I didn't lie, cheat or commit any crimes. Herb apparently has a bug up his butt. This is definately pretty damn close to communism. I will use cloudy nites, since it seems they have the same ads that astromart has!!
