I agree, it is painfully annoying when people do this. Dont' they realize they are probably hurting their business more often than helping it?? Who reads solicitation posts and then is happy to offer their business to the person who is soliciting? The modular home guy especially sucks!

intentionally soliciting business is annoying but I think professionals should post links to their own sites/businesses, etc in their signature. In many cases thats what a signature is for. It's like a business card, and if you have a related product or service to the forum then post it in your signature.

I often visit peoples signature links. But I spend a lot of time at small business forums, web design forums, and sports forums. and all those members have links to their own sites in the signatures. Each online community develops it's own culture though I suppose. if the owner of the forum decides they don't like signatures, then they can disable them though.

Yes website link at signature is OK, it sometimes will let people know how knowlegable this person is to the topics he/sher discussing base on the information provided at his/her signature web-site... and if the viewer click the link, it is really his/her will to do it.. not forcing by the person who do the posting... Other than that, it is correct not to advertise at the message itself... it is kind of conflict of interests.. one probably says what one's selling is good even it is not the fact...
