Nice...

Trust me we understand and appreciate all that you do. Your last post was quite nice. I feel that there is a real person behind the "Moderator" placard on the door. I am a working person so I tend to stiffen up when I feel there is some corporate suit inspecting the place.

Thanks for the relaxed posture,

Faith

Mod -
thanks for weighing in. I really do appreciate that Forno Bravo provides this wonderful space for us to communicate and share. I was just feeling that big brother vibe as well I guess. I think we as a community can do a pretty good job of ID'ing spam links - but understand the malicious content concerns. In the same way you can't post pictures until you have a certain post count, maybe some wait time for new accounts to post links would serve to protect from malicious intent? I don't think there is a big risk of folks with 4-500 posts knowingly posting malicious links.

Unfortunately for you Mr Forno Bravo the internet is made from external links, without external links the internet would perish along with your forum and your internet business sales.

Apart from the content on each site Google ranks each website as to their external links to other sites, the more external sites linking to and from your site the more your ranking is increased.

Most forums would not get a ranking if it were not from links.
If it were not for links to and from this website then Forno Bravo forum would not exist.

Delete the porners and spammers, but leave the well intended alone.

Edit: Also without links from other sites to here how would you attract new members?

Hello Brickie in Oz,
We do not dis-approve all links outside of the FB Forum. We remove all links that promote a product or a service or a commercial blog. We allow individuals to link to resources outside of FB.com -- photo sharing sites, and interesting and related web sites.

As mentioned in previous posts, we encourage our forum members to enjoy the forum. We only ask that guidelines be followed to promote a positive environment for all.

How about mine, it is not commercial but does contain links to other commercial sites (including this one)?

Hi Tscarborough,
This link is fine. As long as the owners do not come onto our forum promoting their site, this is perfectly acceptable.
