    The book is ...

    NOT ALLOWED ON CU BECAUSE
    YOU DIDN'T EVEN ASK ME AHEAD
    OF TIME IF YOU COULD POST IT.

    Ahhhh, I really dislike people posting
    commercials on CU without even
    asking permission.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    How is it commercial? I offered the book for free. Not a part of a book. The entire series of my two books. Not asking you to buy anything else.
    And how would I know that I had to ask permission for that?
    What about any other free link? It's not that I asked you to buy some grapes. The issues are highly relevant to the forum.

    Regardless, I am new here. If you want, take my post down. If you are not happy with me, I'll go away.
    I didn't mean and I don't understand how I might have misled anyone. What do you want me to do?

    How clueless does one have to be to figure out that discussion sites are unappreciative of people spamming self-promote and increase visibility to search engines?

    SR is more merciful than I have been on sites where I was a Mod. I would have summarily perma-banned you, "Zak", and deleted your post(s).

    So perhaps you could all come to some better way of handling this.

    I don't have an issue with posts like that. There was just a single post and it seemed to be consistent with the subject matter of this forum.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Don't make a mountain out of this it isn't a huge issue.
    We simply request that posters ask first, especially if it is a first post.

    I didn't see the OP before SR edited it, but if "Zak" is not aware that a high % of reviews of political books on places like Amazon are attacks by people who have not been with 100 yards of the book they're "reviewing", I have to wonder at this possible lack of awareness.

    Not making a mountain. Just seeing a misunderstanding and the use of the term "spamming" which may be a little harsh here.
