added the X so a bot does associate this with my competitor since this is an open forum.
Thats the trouble, you see other listings that are in violation, but they were created before they changed the rules, which happens constantly! Be aware one day you may go down mysteriously, and whats really troubling is when and IF google sends you an email, it doesn't even explain what you violated! I'd go look at the guidelines, you may be surprised to find your in violation, it just takes months before the google bot filters you out.
