Look, I’ll give you some extra free advice. This forum is for prospective customers to ask questions of existing customers. It is not for existing customers to post threads to get prospective customers to use their promo codes.
I personally think anyone who does that should have their affiliate account canceled for violation of the terms and conditions of Dreamhost’s affiliate program, which prohibits spamming your affiliate codes on forums anywhere.
Also, I think that posting your specific codes in the body of your message in order to get them out there in the guise of a question is also a violation of the terms and conditions of the affiliate program.
Think, people. These forums are Dreamhost’s own forums. They have consistently demonstrated a commitment against spam. You risk not only having your participation in the affiliate program canceled, but you risk having your hosting account canceled for using it for spamming.
Two caveats here: First, I’m only a DH customer and forum participant. I try to be as helpful as possible to folks who come in here looking for help. It doesn’t help them to clutter the forum up with spam. It doesn’t help them to bump dead threads uselessly. It doesn’t help them to post things like “cool” - though a little courtesy and humor is always appreciated. And it doesn’t help them to give them the WRONG ANSWERS.
Second, there was apparently a long discussion here about promo codes on the forums. Apparently (and the old-timers will have to help me out here), it was decided that you were allowed to have your codes in your signature. It was NOT decided that you could spam the forums with your promo codes.
Apologies to all the good people for having to put up with my rant.
