Web-links & Spam
Links are encouraged from our members which assist with providing solutions to member problems or are in context with the thread topic and discussion. Content of third party sites is not endorsed by Cable Forum and we are not responsible for anything found on such sites. Links to sites must only have content that complies with our own site's standards.
Cable Forum takes a dim view of parasites who join this site to spam. Every effort is made to deter spammers. When spam is detected accounts and content are removed.
Spam is simply an unsolicited promotion. The promoted item may be a website, commercial product or other service. Sometimes it will be for individual reward. There does not need to be financial gain although this is usually the motivator. Links to other websites whether as part of post content, user signatures, or profile pages, will be viewed with suspicion. However spam does not necessarily need to include a web-link, just identifying something to encourage others to then search for it could be unwelcome. We will never allow referral links. If in doubt seek prior approval from a member of the team.
