Right, from what I understand these new rules were put in place due to moderator frustration about self-promotion, which is why it would make sense to tackle that as a rule rather than a blanket ban on links.Sadly, this new set of rules affects a lot more than just some self-promotion. The majority of links shared here don't have anything at all to do with self-promotion. It's just throwing the baby out with the bathwater. They could have a rule about self-promotion without passing a rule about every link ever posted. Let's hope that the mod team answers back here, because this is just so sad. I'm in a blue funk about it today.
