    Default URLs for user names?

    There's a newer member here that has a URL as her username. Out of curiosity, of course I checked it out. It's a website for discounted bridal wear.

    Isn't this a bastardized version of spam??

    Thanks Mary. I didn't think it applied to something as flagrant as their user name, but oh well.

    I thought the same thing the first time I saw it but went to her website to see what it was about and she had Denise and Alan on their as mentioning her in the Bridal Bargains Book. I am sure she had to have asked permission....it is rather spammish to me too.

    Well, the creativity of users and self-promotion never ceases to amaze us! We agree---that one has crossed the line. Yes, we do recommend DBS (that user is a DBS rep), but since she is posting to the baby boards, we think she can drop that www. user name. We don't want to start a trend. We asked the user to change it now.

    Thanks for pointing that out,
