I'm not trying to be difficult here. Here's what paintmered had to say after my first thread was locked: "If it's any consolation, you may provide a link to your blog in your signature." That's all he said...
To me, that meant all I had to do to obey the rules is post my link in my signature...just not the body of the message. Am I nuts for thinking that? Besides, I've never seen such rules on any message board.
