Default BFI Sticky (Links&Rules) **UPDATED 6/17**

Welcome to the Business, Finance and Investing Forum on 2+2
<u>Forum Rules:</u>

1) NO SPAMMING!!!! This is a place to discuss different money making and business ideas, not a place to spam your own.

We have talked with Mat about this subject and he has agreed to let us allow/disallow personal links in this forum at our discretion. So what this means, things can basically go back to normal, although we are still going to error on the cautious side when allowing/disallowing links. So if something seems even borderline spam, it will be deleted. Posts that show effort to discuss things about their site along with a link are greatly less likely to get deleted than posts that are basically here's my site look at me.

2) When you use this forum, you are expected to be civil, courteous and respectful of other members.

3) Use the search function. If you post something that has been discussed enough times that I think it's ridiculous to not be able to find it in search, I will lock it. Some examples of this include "I have $x to invest, I'm a newb, help!" and "How should I allocate my retirement/vangaurd/401k/you get the idea portolio." It's not that these questions aren't valid, but the forum does itself a disservice by having fragmented discussion on them. Find the existing thread and post in there.
