#1 Rule of forums.

I don't think anyone, other than me, knows the #1 Rule of the forums, that I believe is the #1 Rule of the forums. You can only post your referral link if it's in a signature. If you just post it as it is, you will have an infraction placed on your account, and will not be reversed. I'm just tired of people just breaking the rules. Any referral link I see that isn't in a signature, I will report you. You could try to report me, but I have done nothing wrong.

Latest official word on the matter so people have an accurate idea, instead of just going off of one guy's hissy fit:

Easiest way to avoid 'spamming' the forums is to just not post the link anywhere outside of your signature. But "don't spam" is the actual rule in place (as far as they've announced).

Apparantly Bioware cares... and thus you should also care, since you could get banned for posting it.

That and the forums would be full of people constantly bumping their threads to ensure their referral remains on top. Not to mention posting the links in every imaginable section.
The fleet spam's bad enough already.
