Commercial or non-commercial, how about we don't have this sig stuff on stickies at the top of a forum? Especially when posted using Google Chrome.

Various folks.

The signature is considered legit. There is no way to have it show only in some posts.

Frank,
I'm the one who confirmed the link. I know Alex and am a member of the forum that the link goes to. It is not commercial. It's a forum, using phpBB, for computer business owners. It's very restrictive about who can join. You have to prove you are a legitimate business. It's a very good resource for us business owners and it's completely free. Note: I am not trying to advertise it here, but since others have questioned the link, I felt the need to explain. The rule applies to commercial links. Do you want us to disallow all links now? Would you remove yours? Yours is just as, if not more, self promotional than Alex's.

Alex is one of the administrators. While I would like to see him post here using Firefox, that topic is in Moz Tech, not any of the Firefox forums. He can use whatever he wants as a browser even if he was in one of the FF forums.

What I want is irrelevant. I am just pointing out something that all of us have known for a number of years here now, i.e. that when a brand new user comes here using the same username as their website and posts 'Hey! that sounds great!' type posts in highly visible threads, that there is good reason to believe that the sole reason for doing so is to promote their sites.

Do what you like about it, I am just reporting what I saw.

Thread locked, first by James and then by me. :)

Understand, and I'm sure that's why it caught LN's attention long before you reported it. It was discussed at that point and resolved. In all honesty, I have suggested that the PCBiz folks come over here for Firefox questions. I kind of want to keep the forums I'm active in separate. I'm sure he was just checking us out. He is impressed with what he saw. Should I send them over to SUMO instead?

That would be both cruel and pointless :shock:

Chill out Daif we aren't having a shot just doing what we have done a thousand times :-"
