spot has reported a post.

Reason:I'm happy with this, it's an Indonesian farming website, he's posting from Indonesia, I've no doubt it's his own website and I don't think he's employed a spammer to publicize it.

Interesting.

I suppose that he is just trying to generate traffic for his blog, in hopes of making it attractive to advertisers?

I've seen his Indonesian-language original of the site - https://translate.google.com/translate? ... t=&act=url

If he's written all that then he definitely knows a lot more about farming that I do. How well the ideas travel to a non-tropic setting I've no idea.

I doubt he's in it with hopes of making a profit.

I'm happy that he's promoting his own site and not a spam merchant but my only concern is consistency - how will an outsider know what is allowed by way of links in a first post.

Maybe an explanatory paragraph in the T&C.

They're all held back in the moderation queue if they have a link.

He says he's from California. Is that a state somewhere else?
I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.

Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.:-6

But then, if he is going to claim he is in California, he should study geography enough to know that California is not part of Canada.

Not sure where that comes from Lars - California in Canada? Did he mention it somewhere ?

Why is the post reported if the reporter doesn't have a problem with it?

He says He is from California, and his profile says location : California and Country: Canada.

So naturally, I wondered.

To find a site-wide consensus on the status of the thread. To express a provisional view where the subscribing membership can add their opinions. It's why we widened Reported Posts to all subscribers instead of just moderators.
