I am disappointed with "LadyRoot" for not observing this policy.
So I am merely citing it again for good measure:

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.

(This is a serious forum - one which I believe sincere users from all over the world use in a constructive, problem-solving fashion. It's one of those places in this noisy world that many strangers can unite through the common bond of science and share their knowledge without a collective fear of being used as merely a source of customers for some convenient advertisement scheme)

Suzanne the link to the posting and advertisement policy seems to be broken.

Can I ask if it is OK to post links to free versions of commercial software tools? My company offers a free version of our software product which many people find useful, but I don’t want to post such a link if it is against the posting policy?

suzanne apparently no longer participates in this forum.

one of these posts may be what was linked:

posting and advertisement policy of these forums

and

general posting guidelines
