---- Get rid of the draconian policy on URLs and mentioning products

Don't be too quick to assume that providing new tools for an expanded task would make life easier.
I would never make such an assumption. You, on the other hand assumed that I was proposing an expanded task when I was not.
The current system requires that every post is read and the system that I proposed does not add to this. It would, however, ensure that spammers and self-promoters don't benefit even if a post slips through.
I proposed a sensible set of suggestions intended to help Webmaster World and yet your reflex action was to criticize rather than consider those suggestions. Sometimes I wonder why I bother. This thread had nearly thirty posts but for the most part it was just useless to-and-fro argument, more or less devoid of helpful suggestions. So, I chip in and what happens - more useless argument. Perhaps this is the real reason why Webmaster World has become less popular in recent years.
You are probably aware that Webmaster World cloaks the robots.txt file - that was my suggestion back in 2005. I'm not a complete idiot. [webmasterworld.com...]
