Lately, I've been wondering what the difference is between a posting that is FYI in nature and a posting that is SPAM in nature.
For example, let say that you come across something that saves you money (ie free coupon codes, sms 411, one day sales ads, etc) and you want to pass it along in a post, you could run into serious trouble if you include a link or a company name.
Yet without those information, how can anyone act on the information in the posting when the web is so big and people being too busy to search for it themselves? The very tool that is designed to save us time, ie html links, gets subverted by the SPAMMERS and attracts the ires of the moderators.
So what's a poster to do. One one hand, I want to post the cool stuff I find on the web. On the other hand, I'm afraid of being banned. So now what?
