Posting and advertisement policy of these forums

Postby strom » Jul 12 2004 6:54 pm

This is a clarification of the "policy" of this site with regards to posts that include advertising of commercial products:

It is permissible to post messages containing information about, or use of, commercial products in molecular biology research. However, posting advertisements for a specific product or company is not permissible when the post is unrelated to the topic--these will be removed.

Please use common sense!

In other words, a posted response to a question should be related and in response to that specific question! If the poster is advocating the use of a particular product/reagent to solve a problem, fine, as long as there is a clear disclaimer attached (for example in a signature file).

What is not allowed are posts that are simply advertisements.

The usefulness of the forums is enhanced when these simple guidelines are followed. Not following the guidelines will result in the offending account being terminated.
