Levi - this forum belongs to the Gardeners World magazine and is provided free for gardeners to seek and provide advice to each other. The magazine's income comes solely from advertising so it is unfair if some businesses get their advertising free while others pay for it.
We all appreciate the forum being provided for us, so if someone tries to get some free advertising we let the Moderators know and they zap it. Nothing to do with being a 'do gooder', just playing fair and appreciating the service GW provides.
If we have received really good (or bad) service from a company, whether it's a seed company, nursery or some other type of supplier of gardening equipment, we let people know about it.
But using it for free advertising really isn't on - hope you understand.
