> What's with the caps? As an owner of a successful business I can tell you that it is not nice to yell at potential customers. In case you don't realize it, customers are the people that provide you with income. Customer satisfaction and not insulting them is crucial to the success of a business. Also, the quality of your advertisements reflects directly on the quality of the products you are trying to sell. Bad spelling and grammar only hurts your business.
