For people that operate sites like WebDev - allowing backlinks is a real headache:eek:
Picking on DarrenLois for example and for the sake of this conversation - his signature aka backlinks look more like SPAM. They serve no purpose on a site like this other than promote what looks to be his business. It'd be different if this was a DIY home remodeling site.
So when posting on forums, make sure you post things that are relevant to the conversation
