SPAM? violation of Terms of Service?

  1. A number of posts constantly point to their own blog for information.

    Is this a violation of TOS? Is ET encouraging people to develop their personal blogs on the back of ET? Don't many of these people have dreams of having a serious blog, that can be monetized?

    Is this perhaps a cheaper way than using an ET sponsorship? Such as last post in:

    I actually complained about this particular poster also, as he keeps putting his site on his posts. But my complaints were not addressed, and his site is still there in the post.

    Just FYI.

  4. I point these things out because:

    --- many forums descend into SPAM fests

    --- ET exists because of sponsors. It is not fair to them if others try to get around this to get free publicity.

    It is not necessary to keep pointing to their own blogs. Anything they have to say can be put in the thread. Many do it just to build traffic to their own site/blog
