The rules are pretty simple.
Do not post links to other dinar sites - this can happen if you simply copy and paste text from another site because the link is embedded in the text. You must manually remove the link.
There is no restriction on posting guru's opinions and showing their "handles"/or names as long as there is no link embedded. However, due to past events on DV, some of those guru's names may be converted (by the software) to "something else". Adam can explain this if he wishes - I'm not getting into the weeds with it.
Affiliate links have always been against rules unless you get permission from Adam first. He has given permission before so you might ask him. Links to other sites that are not affiliate, dinar, or guru sites are acceptable in certain forums. For instance: you can post links to political/2nd amendment articles in the that specific forum; you can post links in the health forum, you can post links in the music forum, and you can post links in the other forums if they are related to that specific forum.
Also, as yota691 stated above - NOTHING IS DELETED. Mods sometimes hide posts that are against forum rules.
I might add one more point: The mods are not on the site 24/7. We do not read every post made and therefore there are times when we miss something that should not have been posted. If you see a post that is questionable, please report it so a mod can be notified. It will not be removed/hidden just because you report it unless a mod determines it is in violation. Sometimes it simply needs to be moved to the appropriate forum.
Hope this helps. We are not deliberately trying to be difficult --- just trying to keep the site clean and up to Adam's standards and wishes.
