I would like to clarify this situation as Gerk twisted my words. As I mentioned in my last posts users on the forum are allowed to have links in their signatures and in their forum posts. What Gerk was doing is against the forum rules. Soliciting members to a competitive forum is not allowed on this forum and an infraction will be issued if a member is caught doing this.

Here is the part of the forum rules that states this:
Quote:
Please note that commercial advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are prohibited unless approved by ehMac.
Despite the fact that in the rules it does not state you cannot post a link to a competitive forum it does state you cannot solicit on the forum.


Thank you
- dm, community support

I like New Mo! Old Mo was too conciliatory.

I think the rules -do- need to be clarified. As there is some grey area here. Because, to quote another member's sig:

Quote:
Visit my website:
St. Albert's Place On The Web
(Over 1.5 million folks have.)
That looks like an open solicitation to me.

For the information of the uninformed or just plain ignorant, my sig was approved by John S. before I put it up. He asked for a link on my site to ehMac and I complied. It was a mutual agreement with the authority of the time and in my opinion is still in place. Nice try at making trouble as is your usual style, but this one is entirely above board. Your apology will be accepted when provided.

And for the record, I have no issues with anyone else linking a site to their ehMac sig either.

my question had very little to do with you Sinc, so no apologies offered.

I used it as an example to understand the the rules in more clarity. I didn't ask that your sig be removed, that was never my intent, nor do I have any knowledge of any previous approval, how would I, or why would I? I simply asked a valid question simply for clarity of what the rules are, and what 'solicitation' is defined as here, so there's no need to get angry and start calling people names like 'ignorant'. That's seems to be your knee-jerk reaction.

I do wish rules like no name calling (IE: 'liar', 'ignorant' etc.) would be equally enforced as well. From what I've seen, it's fully allowed I guess, which is too bad.

Ignorant is not name calling, it is an observation that you are ignorant of all the facts before making comments.

For a guy who claims he was 'just asking for a clarification of the rules', that jab above was unfounded and unnecessary, but like I mentioned, is your usual style.

it's name calling pure and simple. When you call someone 'ignorant' (or liar like the other threads) it's derogatory name calling which funny enough, was against the rules at one time and would have earned you a vacation. Not to mention most other forums I know don't allow direct derogatory name calling and that would also include names like 'ignorant'.

Less people participate because of this now, no one likes the name calling except of course the ones who have excuses for it and do it all the time. Quite a few aren't around as of late. I know I've had a few PMs from some saying this was one of the reasons. Things going downhill now with this sort of name calling.

Interesting how the usual few here are all for and engage in this. If you really support this place as you say you do, why not stop turning this place into a sewer by restraining yourself from the name-calling that's putting others off?

Oh yeah, I forgot, you are never wrong, never apologize and are always the victim. Carry on doing what you do best.

that's quite a response Sinc.

I asked a valid question for clarification, and you got derogatory in name calling.

Is this what you do best?
