Default Shamless Plugging of Personal Websites

There are a few members here who repeatedly and exclusively include posts to their own websites when they respond to or create a thread. Most probably know who I'm talking about.

I think we had this problem a few years back and the posters were warned or instructed to stop doing that. Any chance we can do this again? Get's very annoying when you see a new post in a thread and all it is is a promotion of someone else's website but nothing new.

Ascariss will become famous soon enough

This is how it is, it is unfortunate and I dislike it as well but banning the members would not be fair. They are not spamming per se and if they post and get threads started or keep the topic alive who am I to complain?

I understand your grievance and complaint but if they just spammed their site every day and it didn't contribute, I would ban them, but otherwise warnings do jack.
