Vendor/Supporting member, where is the line drawn?

So you have these new vendor rules you posted that are pretty straight forward but leave open a few things I would like to discuss and get clarification on.

Lets say you have a supporting member who acts like a vendor. He/She is openly advertising and selling parts just like a vendor but is obviously not a vendor but a supporting member. Where does AG draw the line?

Also, is a person who is a supporting member who acts like a spokesperson for a vendor considered part of that vendorship or do they have to be physically employed by the supporting vendor?

Where does AG stand on that thin line?

The way it was outlined to me back before AG bought the site was a full vendor got their own section and editing permissions in that section. Supporting Members did not. The idea of site supporters was to promote the small garage builders, giving them a reason to produce niche parts that the community depends on. Like you, JJ, I am waiting to see all the new structure AG is putting in place. I hope it is kept simple.
