I think a link would make it more legit, without people speculating who's behind it etc but otherwise it's perfect

It does say on the top in small letterings: 'Urgent message from concerned members of our community' Isn't that enough??
I think it's enough.  To me, including a link says "hidden agenda."

Shld we just settle on 2 versions of the ad? 1 with link and 1 without so everyone can feel free to share on social media whichever ad they like better? I think on social media it's fine to include a link, but I wouldn't print it in the papers.

Yes, on their status.. I was surprised, I thought you'd post here first the final ad

I think no link and "concerned community members" says "hidden agenda" loud and clear. when there's a link it's very easy to see who's behind it then one can decide what the intentions are. I personally think a link to Dan's article is very credible and understandable where it's coming from. Concerned community members sounds like it's coming directly from someone who got screwed and there's another side to the story which may or may not be true...

Originally I was of the opinion there shouldn't be a link. I couldn't explain the exact reason why I felt so.

Although I now think eliyohu is right about this comment
I think no link and "concerned community members" says "hidden agenda" loud and clear. when there's a link it's very easy to see who's behind it then one can decide what the intentions are.

But I still sort of feel like the bit.ly link should be used and should just say "for a more detailed report"

Next step: Papers to publish in-
Boro Park-
Yaated
Hamodia
Weekly Link
Torah Times
Luach Hatzibur- (they should also be called to STOP printing ads from these companies)
Kol Berama
 
Please add papers in your community. Maybe someone can add these to wiki and everyone can add/edit accordingly, so we're not bomarded with new messages on this? I can't add it myself as I'm using Tapatalk.

For these you would need a Yiddish version

Yes link, and it should be the dansdeals.com one.

An anonymous ad is more like to be ignored

I don't see how a completely anonymous ad can possibly seen as more legitimate.

Maybe people will think that Dan has a financial interest in bringing these people down.

The reason why I think it shouldn't be the dansdeals one is a combination of a few reasons.

It's sort of like I think people will think of it as a low key ad somehow. Plus I don't think dansdeals is viewed as a news source so it will be a little distracting in my opinion. It will be like cnn explaining a gemara.

But I've been outvoted above. Statistics say listening to the majority is best :)

I'd assume farmers have their own affiliate links. It's hard to know what people will think.

I may have thought that having a dansdeals link would make people think that it's an ad to drive traffic to DDMS. Like "Here's a summary of an interesting story. To read on, visit DDMS."
