"Only 2 or 3? Really? Everyone of your posts has a link to your blog! Or do you not count your blue tag as a link?"
That response makes no sense in the context of what you quoted.
"Maybe it doesn't bother anyone else, but now i've noticed it, it just shouts 'SPAM' at me every time i look at a stove thread."
It's basically a signature, akin to a logo on a business card. It's not spam, it's not only legit, but it's a sensible practice, one which I follow myself -- though not so much on here, because BPL's crappy forum software doesn't seem to have a signature setting. I suppose I could start adding my own signature manually.... hm.
This is, btw, the ONLY forum I've ever encountered where nearly no one includes a signature in their posts.
