The topic is how to make it better. And part of that would be not having links to information or even just where your car pictures aer posted deleted simply because somewhere on the site there's some advertising OR they had been posted on another forum.
ye, there's a problem with spammers (and I try to do my part to link Bav to threads that are spam and advertising), but there seems to be a problem with determining what is solicitiation with the intent of drawign people away from this site or making money, and simply linking to other information or a better SOUCE of information for a particular question.
An example would be linking to a BMW marque specific site that has 30 or 40 pages of information that answered a question rather than cutting and pasting all that and all images in a thread here. Or if you haev set up a thread about your car with attatched pictures (that are larger than attatchemnts here allow), it seems logical to post a link to that description and those pictures, rather than repeating everything here and wasting CF bandwidth. If you don't own or make money off of or really have any affiliation with a forum other than your info is apready posted in a thread there, then it's not advertising. It's just normal internet ettiquette.
As for mods, leave my name out of it. I'm a mod on one site already and it's more than I want to deal with.
