I think there's a misunderstanding about the links rule. I've seen this on a couple of threads recently. The rule is:
Do not post links or URL's to any websites that contain posting boards, groups, chats or offer items for sale.
We're allowed to post informational sites, just not sites where we can identify each other or where anything is sold. At least, that's how I've understood it. If I'm wrong, I hope a moderator will correct me.
