I would like to suggest that you slightly relax the rules on posting urls for websites. In chatting with others I have found interesting and valuable sites. Sites such as Alien Soup, anandtech (not the forum) that discusses the relative merits of motherboards, chipsets, cpus, etc., even a posting on a ebay where someone bought just the packing carton that a Sega DreamCast came in for $400. Sometimes they say check this out but with the intent of informing or entertaining the group. This group visits a multitude of sites and together sift out the better ones. And, we should be allowed to discuss and share our experiences with others. I don't think this would detract from Alien Soup, only make it a better community. I know the subterfuge references to sites trying to sell something are a problem and annoying and I agree those should be restricted & zapped.
