I am new on this forum and find the alot of nice things. I want to make good frieds here.
My first question is that If you use put link in signature then its spam or not?
if it is not spammer then why forum owner remove post or banned the user???
If it called spammer then why forum owners give this option.
Its the main issue i feel please share your views.
waiting to your response.

I think reading our Posting Guidelines would help answer your question.

Our signature rules wrote:

No images in signatures (unless they are SF emoticons and please don't go overboard).
Only use standard text size (or smaller), non-obtrusive colors and 5 or fewer lines in signatures.
NO commercial sites/entities/corporations etc. in signatures.
Only one link per signature is now allowed on SF due to previous abuse.
"Donate to me" or any other kind of donation oriented link is not allowed.

People who join our site and post in very old threads without really adding anything of value to them ("I have this problem too" or "Really interesting article") and have links in their signature to sites selling handbags, iPhone hacks, or any other unrelated rubbish are likely to get banned. Maybe you thought you had a legitimate post or a valid reason to include a link to your site, but it can be quite hard to distinguish these amongst the dozens of spammers who visit us every day.
