Hi Bryan,

On the general discussion boards, you probably should limit your mention of things of which you are aware to something like "Patelco is offering a 5.00% rate of return on the first $1000 deposited to a new account. That's pretty good, don't you think, or do you know a better rate of return with a responsible bank?" and leave it at that, w/o mentioning your website, though it looks OK.

You might speak with TMF about opening your own discussion board on their site to better focus on more detail in your endeavors - They will, probably, extend you very ample courtesy in doing so - This is an example of such a board on TMF's site, though it, perhaps, could be better:

You might also consider buying an ad on TMF's site, which, as you seem to have worthwhile information to share, they may well be interested, if you're in a position to invest in an ad on their site and can generate enough revenue to offset the cost.

Financial Services, in which you have a vested interest, are often very challenging to present - I know, as I have worked in the "Insurance 'racket'" for far more than several decades. Help people, with good advice, on TMF's discussion boards, as best as you can, w/o plugging, if you will, what appears to be vested interests and you will be pretty readily accepted and received.

Best regards,
