: McSpotlight: Red, this really isn't a forum for advertising...

1:I'm not asking anyone to part with money.

2:Many other people post Links, and I beleive there are items within the standard worth people's while to read- Otherwise I'd have to cut and paste articles from there to here (Specifically as I am one of the Contributors to that journal).

3:I see no real difference between posting that Link, and my continued advertising by posting my Party's name and Arguments here. Specifically, I could Sneak Links to the Standard into all my posts, but I'd rather just let them as may be interested once a month know there's a new edition out- surely passing on info is a good thing?

McSpotlight: Pointing them out in the context of a debate is fine and we have absolutely no problems with it; it's just that posting a message with no content other than a plug for a magazine or political party is not really something we'd encourage for the DR.

I know it's a fairly fuzzy and ill-defined line (in that everyone here is advertising their own ideology and that it's technically valid in the wider debate) and we're sorry if this offends you, but the prime purpose of the DRs is for the debate, not the hustings ;)
