No questions will be asked and none will be answered. Here are what we consider a spam on our site :-

  1. Promoting your own link in every post and comment.
  2. Sending large amounts of private messages to users who are not expecting them.

  3. Repeatedly posting the same or similar comments.

  4. Repeatedly posting unrelated/off-topic/link-farmed content.

  5. Posting content that includes link redirects as a way to circumvent an existing domain block and/or to disguise a link’s source.

  7. Programming bots that harm/break the site, including bots intended to promote content/products/services.

We have strict rules for promoting content. Posting links to your own or affiliated content is considered self promotion. Promotion should not be a main purpose of your account, you should be an active, participating member of this community first. You should submit from a variety of sources. Give feedback to others, talk about issues that interest you, and be a good member of the community. As a rule of thumb, no more than 20% of your submissions may be to any single site or on any given topic. This is not limited to your own content – you can be in violation of the promotion rules for a site that you have no direct affiliation with.
