    What is with the advert that is disguised as an article

    Hey Geo baby,

    I'm a little disappointed to see the advert for cord banking instead of an article. I was interested in reading about the different options for cord banking in HK but was obviously was disappointed. I think mixing your advertising as articles is a dangerous thing to do.

    my two cents

    Hi there,

    The article is in the advertorial section: advertorials which does say "Messages from our sponsors".

    All media (Print, TV, Online) carry advertorials, as there is a demand from advertisers.

    From my perspective - we keep our forums free of advertiser influence (yes, it takes a lot of work) and discussions / issues can be dealt with in the forum, without any bias from our sponsors.
