I think a new poster is allowed one post to introduce a product outside the classified, and after that further advertising is prohibited outside the classified.
What about the posters that are just fishing for YouTube subscribers? There posts contain nothing but a YouTube link. They never come back to reply to questions and comments, and never participate in the ag talk community it any other way, even though they are very knowledgeable on the subject.
My question is it that kind of posting considered advertisements?
Machinery pete used to do the same thing. Posted links only, to subscribe to his YouTube and hawk his newsletter. Never participated. thankfully, finally some negative comments drove him away.
