felix4067 Maybe I don't understand how forums work, but posting an unsolicited link to your business in hopes of making a sale as a new member in an online forum is pretty much the definition of spam as far as I understand it. Actual advertisers pay to promote their businesses.

Not sure of the exact applying rules, but it makes sense that one may recommend their own business under the same criteria as one may recommend a business which is not one's own, with the obvious exception of starting a new thread.

Under the published Rules of Conduct for this site:
  • Any topic that is a blatant ad (or selling something) is prohibited
http://www.roadfood.com/F...LEASE-READ-m69391.aspx
 
Seems pretty straightforward to me. Same rules as apply to the kitchen spammers, different subject.

Well, Daniel didn't start the topic, and his post was on-topic. So the only question is whether or not it was an attempt at spam, and my analysis holds.

So your analysis of posting a link purely to sell something so you can make a profit does not result in that being spam? Interesting.
 
However, the point is moot as it is a new poster and thus  not allowed to post links. A feature, I might add, specifically used on this site to prevent spamming.

I'VE BEEN SHOUTING AT STEPHEN ET AL. FOR YEARS THAT THE RULES OF CONDUCT SHOULD BE POSTED BOLDLY ON THE HOME PAGE UNDER "STARTING POINTS".

Starting Points

PUT THEM RIGHT HERE!!!!!
CURRENTLY, THE RULES ARE HIDDEN IN THE "ROADFOOD NEWS FORUM". TO ANY NEWBEE COMING ON BOARD, THAT'S THE LAST PLACE THEY WOULD LOOK TO FIND THE "RULES OF CONDUCT". THERE'S NO LOGICAL CONNECTION BETWEEN "RULES OF CONDUCT' AND "ROADFOOD NEWS". NONE!
C'MON STEPHEN., POST THE "RULES OF CONDUCT" IN A HIGHLY VISABLE, EASY TO REACH PLACE ON THE HOME PAGE AND ELIMINATE MOST OF THE HUNDREDS OF POSTS THAT HAVE BEEN PLACED ON HERE QUIBBLING OVER THE "RULES OF CONDUCT"!!!

In a context where it is OK to send a link to a competing business, should a user be prohibited from posting a link to their own business?

OK, first, I don't work here. I don't know anything other than the published rules of conduct. But how it works on every web site where I have ever worked is, if you want to promote a business, be it yours or someone else's, you pay the site to advertise on it. Nearly every single online forum of which I have ever been a part, whether I worked there or not, expressly prohibits spamming. Nearly every single online forum defines spamming as "posting a link to promote a business in the forums instead of paying for advertising".
 
As I said, in this instance, the point is moot because a new user cannot post a link. I think the fact that in this instance the user registered for the forums in an obvious attempt to post a link to a business, and has never since returned or posted more than the three times in this thread (all of which are clearly attempts to post a link), speaks volumes. And it is exactly the reason why new users are prohibited from posting links.
 
I am now done arguing about this. Because I honestly don't care nearly as much as you evidently do about it. Have a nice day!

Used to see canned bacon in the Navy. But this was after about 2 or 3 months at sea.

And appropriate that the wonderful Squeez Bacon has been resurrected in the month of April this year.

Personally appearance of food is very important along with texture.  Again personally this turns me off.  Its appearance is akin to dog vomit and I would not enjoy it.
