Why aren't we allowed to post links to other sites?

(As this has nothing to do with this thread, I've moved it to its own thread, to keep inquiries organized.)

The forum isn't a place to promote your own paid apps, your own personal blog. Basically, that would be using our website for free to promote your own business. So posting links for this reason is not allowed and is considered spamming, which happesn a lot here unfortunately.

If you are posting a link to something helpful for the users, let's say you found a cool how-to from the xda-developer website, or something that will bring some added value and help to others, then it's ok.

You can only post a link after you have posted 10x.
