Just a query: 

As a per cent of usable space, how much do these adverts really take up?  In other words, does Chesspub really have to go to such draconian measures as to limit the members who can post here?

No, just the stuff where someone comes onto the Forum with the express purpose of making some free adverts.

GM Kosten,

I once referred a poster to Zsuza Polgar's blog since he was looking for a place where he coluld get some chess puzzles. Would that also be considered  advertising?

Thanks, I seem to spend half of my day deleting spam on this site at the moment! I think I may have to take the Members-only posting route very soon! Cry

In the Jänisch-Schliemann thread (Open Section) you will find something really worth deleting. If that is not an advertisement, than what is?

Yes, really I was a bit concerned at the way some people seem to think that other Forums are not for sensible discussion, but places to get free publicity. I hadn't realised there was such a major problem with Dutch newspapers, but from now on I will be keeping a close watch on them! Grin

I imagine that Kosten is more concerned with advertisements for other chess sites :P

Here I go. In my last post in the WCh football thread I have given a link to a Dutch newspaper. It is about having too many Ajax players in the Orange team. May I? If not, go ahead and delete the post. I would be grateful for an explanation.

Would anyone who wishes to advertise content on another site or Forum please have the courtesy to ask me first, otherwise your missive risks being deleted! Cry
