9. No Soliciting
No soliciting of any kind. This includes (but is not limited to) asking for us to link to your subreddit, forum, bulletin board, newsgroup, Facebook page, etc. We're here to help with technical issues, not market for others.

Please stick to the issue being addressed in the post. Use common sense.
11. No Posts/Comments by a Company or an Employee on Behalf of a Company
Employees of companies with social media presences for marketing or damage control are not allowed. Violations will be dealt with harshly.
12. No Potentially Malicious Links
