I wanted to take a moment to post a quick note about the recent "refining" of policy regarding Promotions.
We do, in fact, welcome people to join the Forums and post about promotions which they run, if they are of benefit to this community (for example, software deals like those recently under scrutiny are actually quite alright). We do ask, however, that those promoters would consolidate their deals into a single thread. That is, if I run Acme Mac App Bundlers, Inc., then I would create a new thread titled "Acme Mac App Bundlers, Inc. Promos" and post regular updates there. Discussion and comments would be welcomed and even encouraged. What I would not do is post a new thread every time I come out with a new promotion.
I find this to be a very nice balance between free exposure to a group of sexy, intelligent Mac users while not clogging up the Forums with threads about every sort of promotion.
Notice: We will be using our best judgement with regards to terms like "benefit to the community" and the like.
Thanks to John for clearing up our position on this, I hope this new "policy" is helpful and clear.
