Just to be clear, this was a link to a youtube video, or was the video itself an ad for internet services/third chess paysite?

He was advertising his own Youtube videos, I've no idea if there is anything else as I didn't look.
We are having to deal with a lot of spammers since registration was again made free to anyone, but fortunately the Moderators are doing a good job of deleting their trace fairly quickly.


Yes, I see - thanks for the reply.

There's a clear ban on Ads for other sites, look at the 'Advertisements for other sites/forums' thread, and you also agreed not to do this when you accepted the Registration Agreement.
It also looks like you made 5 pointless posts in quick succession just to be able to add an image to your post.

Hello everyone,
is there anyone who can explain me why I got banned for posting a link to a Youtube chess video about the evergreen game in the general chess section of this forum? I was also asking for comments about that game and the video... Huh

Thanks in advance!  Smiley
