Disclosure stuff..

I've been reading about this full disclosure stuff.

It confuses me.

Being in the marine business as it were..

A) In no way are we to post any links to our business. (Damned if you do)

B) We are required to give a full disclosure of our business. (Damned if you don't)

I, ah.. Well.. Doesn't the two seem kinda' contradictory?

I own Left Coast Development. We build Stereos, LED lights and "Gasp" Sailboats.

I'm befuddled..

It's not that hard to follow. They're just trying to prevent blatant spamming/advertising. If you're in the marine industry, say so in your signature. It shows up in every post and you never have to worry about it again.

Then you're fine as long as your posts aren't shameless plugs for your own business interests.

Some free advertising.
Is this you?
Left Coast
The Dart looks interesting. Is that keel cantilevered or rigid?
If it is you then add the link to your signature.
BTW welcome to SN.

Yes that's me, the keel is just raisable for trailering. It bolts down solid to the keel trunk for the actual boating part.

When I added the link to my sig. on the cruisers forum they went bonkers. Even though, I think, I'd been posting there longer than some of the moderators..

Anyway, not wanting repeat of that nonsense, I was not going to say anything at all. And that's when I read the bit about "Thou shalt disclose!".

I don't mind disclosing, just not ruffling official feathers if I do.

You can do what I do, but even though my avatar and sig have been given the "OK" by the mods numerous times, the especially ignorant still give me grief over it. It is sort of damned you do, damned if you don't situation.

While I'm at it, do you ever prune un-used user names? Because I see my favorite one was registered about 10 years ago and never used.
