Policy re acceptable biographical (advertising) text in signature lines

Recommended Posts

It appears that there has been a recent influx of new posters who are making semi-legitimate comments for the sole purpose of gaining exposure for a link in their signatures. (Bestprice, paulfinn31, vijendrasnv, for example). While it is possible to simply delete these posts, there might be some cases where the new posters are on the up and up. Should there be other restrictions, or is this not really a big deal?

On that note, I've wondered if this forum makes adequate use of the "! Report" button in the lower left of each post which allows a user to flag a post for review by a moderator. I've tried to make use of that when a post has a commercial link hidden in a signature. But results (ie a moderator having taken a visible action) have varied.
