We apologize for the downtime. During this maintenance period, the site has been upgraded to the newest versions to enhance the user experience. Please note we are still working on the site, so its appearance may change from time to time over the next few days.
We are seeing a surge in signature links - mostly, but not exclusively, from newer members.
There are a handful of members who had links approved many years ago - before I was even here. And there are site sponsors (who make the site possible) who are allowed signature links. For any others, those links will be treated as spam. It doesn't matter whether it is a link to your blog or to your site selling black-market iPads. Your link will disappear and it's quite possible that you will as well.
Most here prefer a spam-free site. If you are here to advertise for free, rather than to participate, you are not going to be welcome.
