    Administrators and moderators:

    Originally posted by Forum rules
    Content of contributions: reserves the right to delete, move or edit posts that do not conform to forum rules. This will be done without notifying the author in advance.
The following content is not permitted or undesired:
    • Posts whose content is extremely political or religious in nature
    • Content that is criminal in nature, pornographic, harmful to young people, insulting or defamatory
• Warez or third-party copyright-protected content
    • Email addresses
    • Song lyrics
    • Personal details such as telephone numbers, addresses etc. (please use PM system to exchange such information)
    • Otherwise unacceptable posts that have not been listed here but are against the law, are an affront to common decency, violate moral norms or violate forum rules.
    • Advertising
    • Full quotes
    • Begging posts
    • Tournament passwords. (links to the relevant thread in our password forum are allowed.)
    The rules above outline the reasons posts or their content may be deleted by the moderation team. I see no rule concerning posting links to competing site beside the generic legal, immoral or indecent posts.

    So why was a link to poker related content removed on removed? Surely that is not competition.

    Why were links to poker news sites, most of which PS advertises on, edited out?

    I can understand links to competing poker sites and competing poker educational sites being excluded, but beyond that I see no reasonable justification for disallowing them.

    Would someone please list the specific criteria that qualifies a "competing site" as such?

    Hiya Joe,

    As for the Specific reason links get removed that be a case by case basis.

    At all times we review each link and them make a decision if it is in the best interest of PSO/PS and/or the thread in question and go from there.

    If you have anymore questions on this please feel free to PM me.

    Thanks for being part of PSO, and Best of Luck at the Tables
