If a link says "Banned" or "Spam"
An updated word about “Banned” sites, as we’ve received a couple of questions recently from our users -
Any link that says “Banned” or “This link has been removed due to forum spam” usually means that the link in question was found signing up on the forum specifically to spam a product or service. We only take this measure when it's 100% obvious and occurs on multiple occasions. Sometimes this occurs in the photo galleries, but most of the time it occurs in the forums.
Please note that it only means that they broke the posting rules here and therefore their link has been blocked site-wide in order to stop the spam from occurring. It does not mean that we have received any complaints about the website or business in question.
