No one ever hid this fact. It's not a crime. And you don't know what you are talking about to boot.
You have sneered at two respected members of this community, members whose credentials I know and can verify.
Yours, on the other hand, are somewhat less obvious, aside from the ease of verifying that your companies have engaged in spamming.
You have impugned a moderator's ability to moderate—yet you yourself are incapable of distinguishing a forum (though the word occurs on every single forum page) from a blog.
You have violated the basic tenet of AW expressed in The Newbie Guide to Absolute Write and you have successfully abused the English language by repeatedly using words whose meanings you do not comprehend.
No one has asserted that yours is a vanity press. You do charge a fee for entry to the Hoffer Award competition. You do not disclose the judges. You have spammed people—and offered your mailing list for sale. These are not actions that place you or your endeavors in a positive light. Nor does your attempt to sneer at or browbeat members of AW.
You are not doing yourself or your various publishing endeavors any favors.
In short, you will cultivate a modicum of civility or you will cease posting until you can comport yourself in a rational and courteous manner.
Do I make myself clear?
Wait a minute. I enter a blog that has been smearing me for years, and you threaten to kick me off when I defend myself?
