Double-posting, or cross-posting, is frowned upon on most forums. Especially when you are using it to promote a particular web site.

Sorry, didn't realise. Thought it might have got buried among posts on another subject. Absolutely no connection to me. Just thought it might be useful.

I don't see any problem in this instance. Of course, cross-posting inevitably leads to confusion and wasted effort when asking for assistance.

The problem is the needless duplication of information. It may not be a huge problem in this case, but it is the thin end of the wedge. It's a simple matter of commonly agreed forum etiquette.

I don't think that cross-posting is only to be deprecated when it may cause confusion. It seems particularly pointless to post the same information twice in succession in the same forum - there would be more justification for posting a copy of the message in several different forums here, but that would surely be frowned upon.

The problem is that now we have caused more noise by discussing the matter. frown

I think the OP is quite right that the link to what does look to be quite a good site would be buried in the thread it first appeared in. So although I agree with you in general, I think in this particular case you may be being a little strict smile.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
