I’m not sure if posting the name is grounds for deletion, but posting a link to an auction there certainly is.

Bingo!

The word “Ebay” is not among the words we use in the censors list. And just using the word in a post is not a problem. However, post an Ebay link here, and the post is toast.

Hey! I kinda like that…”The post is toast.” It even rhymes.

Duly noted.  I just went and removed the eBay link from one of my posts that I did earlier today before Mods or you caught it.  Whew!

Can I ask why it is prohibited? I don’t see it mentioned in the Terms of Service.

It’s like a wee bit of taboo,….but honestly, it’s a slap in the face to the sponsors of this forum that keep the lights on,….put yourself in the sponsor’s shoes,….you’re paying OGR to advertise your wares on here, and somebody undermines your advertising with links to the bay,……if bay links were to run ramped, why would the sponsors want to be bothered??….then it’s boom, boom, out goes the lights,…

See "use of the forum" section: "You also agree that you will not use this forum to promote other forums including but not limited to ebay and similar websites via the posting of their web address, whether via a hyperlink or via text."

It is also in the for sale forum rules: "Links to other other sites where items are for sale is not allowed...ie ebay, etc."

Ah, thanks.  I didn't see that in there.
