Thanks - been looking for a community like this for a while!

I was preparing a welcome post naming you all, but then the lights went out and everything got lost, so you'll have to put up with a generic welcome, I'm afraid... ;-)

I'm only gonna say this once: "I've just let sixty-three of you in here." In itself, this is not unusual. However, the fact that I've just rejected a hundred and nineteen spammers, link-droppers, shameless broadcasters, and non-humans to find you guys makes it very unusual, since the average rejection rate in this place is about 50%.

The high rejection rate is due to the simple fact that we get an awful lot of the above spammers, link-droppers, etc. trying to get into this place for their own, nefarious reasons. And, because we don't want our community's stream contaminated with a load of toxic waste, we've decided to nip the problem in the bud before it even makes it through the front door.

So... from what I can see, you guys are all human enough to be a valuable, constructive part of this community; don't let me down.

And, as the community's newest members, I would ask you all to play by the same set of simple rules all of us stick to:

1. No self-promotional broadcasting
This community was created for the purposes of discussion, information sharing, and learning from each other, not as a venue to publicize your latest article about PR or link-building. If you do have an article or a piece that you feel would add relevance to the community or spur discussion, then please contact one of the moderators for advice.

2. No spamming the community stream
You spam, you're out, no warnings... Simples

3. In the immortal words of Bill & Ted: "Be excellent to each other."
While we appreciate that people don't always agree, we like to keep things civilized around here, which is why we ask you to play nicely in our community. So, if you feel that someone's being a @$%#, then either walk away, stay 100% civil, or report it to one of the moderators. Please do not fan the flames.

As you can see, they're pretty easy... much easier than being let in here in the first place. So... once again, welcome to the Technical SEO Community; I hope your stay will be a pleasant and productive one.
