I just deleted my last post. I am not thrilled that the guy came on hiding his commercial interest. But it is not something I feel like going further with either if it is unclear whether that is OK.
In all fairness to the OP, I didn't see any link to his site or any "advertising" other than he named a product he was using in his initial post which contained the two whitewater videos. Does that violate the restriction against "using this Website to engage in any advertising or marketing"? If so, then lots of folks have violated it simply by advocating gear they like and use, and some even provide website links where to purchase.. I know I have, including links to The River Connection. A grey area.
It was the people who responded who brought up sales and posted the advertising links, not the OP. Nor has his post been flagged by anyone.
Do moderators have the right to unilaterally delete threads which have not been flagged and which are clearly not spam? Maybe Brian should answer that question.
