First Shameless self promotion is very vague. Does it mean if you say you are an author that you must stop writing in discussions. I ask because people are chasing off others for nothing more than that.
I do not think of people as "Trolls" sorry. And when you are in discussions that promote reading I find it hard to accept you start dropping product links for items other than books. It just doesn't make sense.
I also have been going through several genres discussions and all are seeing a down turn in activity since this policy. The only active forum seems to be the "Meet The Authors" forum. And there are not a lot of readers there as of yet.
I am beginning to think The policy was put in place to curb discussions and have fewer people needed to police the sites.
