I know that everyone does not understand my rationale on NOT having a private area at AGD. What I don't want is everyone posting in private forums and nothing going on in the open... that doesn't help new affilaites at all and is what happens as soon as private forums are created.... everyone thinks every post should be 'private'. And new affiliates do not join because there is no good information to see. So - this is why I haven't opened up private areas. I understand that some content may not be posted here because of that, but I also know that it keeps AGD 'open'.
