Posting Links to Websites - A Clarification.

All,

There have been a lot of instances recently of self-promotion of websites, (both subtle and blatant).

The key word here is "Self".

This is not permitted, and - at the very least - the links will be removed from posts. Threads may be deleted and UserIDs banned for persistent attempts to self-promote.

However, there is no problem with people posting links to websites where the poster has no interest or involvement with the company in question - how would we ever render assistance to the needy otherwise?
(note - this is not an absolute and binding definition, common sense applies)

It is possible that a moderator might - occasionally - have to step in if someone overstepped the mark regarding promotion, but I don't recall ever seeing this - except where the promotion was for their own site, product or service.

I recently uncovered a user from Australia who had registered 26 user IDs over a 4-year period on PPRuNe, for the sole purpose of dishonestly promoting his website and services. Needless to say I am not particularly disposed to be tolerant of any such self-promotion!
