I made a post about a new yahoo group for pool forum addicts. I am making no money off the yahoo group and am pretty sure the post was deleted. How can it be considered a commercial post if its free and for pool players. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I thought the same thing.. I had replied to your post. If they are going to enforce it that way they should get rid of all the commercial links in signatures as well.

I hate spam just like the next guy but if someone is obviously not a spammer and they are sticking to a pool related topic, I think a little discretion should be used. My post got deleted in a few hours, and the guy that posted "Make 5,000 for a $5 investment" had his post stay on for over 24 hours. Go figure /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

It is not a debate, they removed it that's that. You come on a board that sells advertising on this site to support it's self and try to advertise another site and don't see the wrong of that? This web site is a business, I seriously doubt they have any interest in advertising another web site and I don't blame them. In fact I would delete this thread if I were them, they don't need your criticism. If you have a problem e-mail the administrator directly.

Did you mean discretion?

Yeah that's what I meant. I thought about it after I posted it and figured it was discretion. Duh. Still working on improving my grammar.

Popcorn, the point is that there was no advertising in Christopher's post, just a link to a non-commercial yahoo group. Pooltchr's link in his signature is a commercial link. What's the difference? I don't see one.

No one said this site is a democracy. If he has questions he should e-mail the administrator. He is the one with the answers instead of trying to create some contrived controversy. As far as people with links, again you need to ask the administrator, I'm sure he will answer you.

I was not trying to creat a "contrived controversy" I was just asking my question in an open format instead of through email or PM's. No controversy, I made a post and it was deleted, Life goes on /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
