I'm not anticipating any, so do you think simply posting it would work?

No, I don't think that would work. Would you like for me to demonstrate why?

Jim asks a very reasonable question.

What is the answer?

Can the vendor create negative ad campaigns against NACHI members who refuse to purchase their products?

Ad campaigns that mention InterNACHI members by name?... No. Ad campaigns that say "hire inspectors who use my products?"... I don't see anything wrong with that.

What course of action will be available to NACHI members whose business has been affected by vendors who use negative ads as a punishment to NACHI members who refuse to purchase their products?

Even when they make untrue and unverifiable statements that look like facts?
