Default advertising & networking

is advertising a company or product frowned upon on this forum? I know that many members are established professionals and members of the working class, so perhaps it would be prudent to allow for business-related networking between HWCer's to benefit all of us.

While we don't discourage individual members from publically discussing what they do or who they work with, we strongly discourage (in fact prohibit) the type of advertising / sig urls that would be required for the type of networking you are talking about.

The reasonings are simple.... spammers would quickly take advantage of any change to the current policy, and moderators would then have to make judgment calls which is both time consuming as well as potentially controvertial.

As it stands, the only commercial advertisement we allow are those relationships (like DazMode) which have been approved by the site admin (Gav).
