I don't normally introduce myself on these things, but seeing as how my posts have been labelled "spam" (for reasons even I can't fathom) I thought I'd better make a post here.

I have posted some reviews from my site, which are originally from my Amazon account. They are designed to start conversation/debate/whatever.

So, let me get this straight - this is a forum where you can talk about music and movies, yes? But when I do that it gets labelled "spam".

Anyone care to clear that up for me?

I think the reason you have been accused of "spamming" is because you are promoting your own website and basically swamping this board with one subject - reviews.

However, if you are going to continue to be curmudgeonly on other subjects, you'd be right at home and very welcome.

Welcome to the site Curmudgeon :bye:


I think posting a link to your site in some of your posts would be classed as 'spamming' on this site Curmudgeon but you are allowed to include it in your signature.


But I'm not quite sure how posting reviews on different subjects can be classed as swamping the board with one subject Huh

I think everyones first posts are classified as 'Spammer?' aren't they?

I wouldn't read anything too sinister into it, just Haydon labelling from past experience.

While I'm here (and unable to sleep), how the hell do you put your signature into your posts? Its only in my profile but not, you know, at the end of every post like a signature should be.

Oh what a shame.

Try clicking on 'Avatars' above. You'll be able to use some of your credits to get yourself a little Chibi that'll be more in keeping.
