Question

Policy for affiliate links


I am seeing more and more posts where a product is praised and the poster includes a link to the product at a vendor's site which includes the poster's affiliate code at the vendor.
Often, the fact that an affiliate code is being used is hidden behind a shortened URL.

Given the fact that the poster is making money from any sales generated by these links, I generally view such posts as being of low impartiality.

I am surprised to find no official policy regarding such links. Is there one? If not, should there be?

Yes, affiliate links are not allowed in the Hot Online Deals section. In other forums, it is considered an advertisement and must follow the site rules regarding posting ads such as we only allow one ad post per forum per week. If you see posts that break the site rules, please hit the report button to alert a moderator.
