You may have noticed that there’s a tremendous amount of free
information on www.bendover.com.
That’s no accident. Not long after I started broadcasting my
brand of “un-common sense” via radio, print and television, I
was swamped with letters and emails from people who asked me for
help and direction.
As a result, I quickly realized that there’s no way one person
could possibly answer every question, from every person, with a
unique problem. (After all, I can only drink so much coffee!)
Thank God for the Internet! Launching www.bendover.com
was the only way to make this life-changing and life-saving
information available to everyone. At first, I just posted notes
from my radio shows. But now the site has grown into one of the
largest and most respected repositories of real-world un-common
sense and consumer know-how. And all the info is still free to you!
But that doesn’t mean keeping www.bendover.com
up and running is free to me. In fact, it costs big bucks. And that
bill is paid by our sponsors.
Which brings me to a few points about sponsors that need to be
put on the table…
1. It takes a hell of a lot more than
money to qualify as a sponsor for this Web site: Not
everyone makes the cut. That’s one reason this site doesn’t look
like The Yellow Pages. All of our sponsors are here because:
|a) They’re damned good at what
they do. I’m talking best of breed,
folks. Anyone who promotes their services here has proven
expertise in their field. If they sell a product or a
service, it’s worthy of our endorsement.
b) They have an excellent track
record. Would it surprise you to know that no one
becomes a sponsor until we check them out thoroughly? If you’ve
spent more than a minute on the site, you know that I don’t
do business blindly — and I won’t let anyone who visits
this site make that mistake, either.
c) All of our sponsors have
demonstrated a willingness to go the extra mile for people
— especially Dover listeners, readers and
is with that individual sponsor — not
Benjamin Dover. We go out of our way to make sure you’re
dealing with top-shelf professionals and companies, but everyone’s
situation is different and there is no way on earth that we can
guarantee results. Here’s how my legal eagles put it: “No
express or implied warranty is hereby given.” (Man…I’m
glad I didn’t go to law school.)
2. Any business you conduct with a sponsor of
3. If you’ve got a problem with a sponsor that can’t be
resolved, we want to hear about it! On the rare occasion
when someone has an issue with a sponsor they found through our
site, we go out of our way to get things resolved. When everyone is
reasonable, everyone walks away happy. Sponsors that don’t live up
to Dover standards of service get their butts kicked off this site…period.
And if a customer refuses to be satisfied by reasonable good faith
efforts (sometimes you just can’t make someone happy), we’re
gonna stand by our sponsor.
4. You are under absolutely no obligation to purchase any
goods or services from any of our sponsors. We endorse
our sponsors because we know they can deliver. But if you have any
doubts or concerns about doing business with a sponsor you see on www.bendover.com,
don’t do business with them! For the love of God, exercise
some free will, will ya? Pull out your local Yellow Pages or
ask a friend for a referral instead. Sure, I think you’d be nuts
not to give our sponsors a shot, but (as always) it’s your call.
