WebmasterWorld Policy on Linking to Blogs

The folks over at WebmasterWorld do not always ask for member feedback when it comes to linkage rules. But this week, things are different, Brett Tabke (owner of WebmasterWorld), started a thread named Frogs, Blogs, Moderation and The Current WebmasterWorld Policy (must be a WMW supporter to access thread). In that thread he outlines the dilemma he has regarding linking to blogs and asks for paid�member feedback. I am sure many of you are not "supporters" of the forum, so luckily DG's Desk has a little write up on it, discussing one of the subtopics in the thread on So, Are Blogs "News"?

Basically, I have no issue if they decide not to link to blogs. I have no issue if they decide to not link to any site. WebmasterWorld is its own forum, I go there daily and I know what to expect. Do I dislike the forum because of its strict policies? Absolutely not. I respect those policies and participate, as best I can, within those guidelines. On the other hand, I also participate in extremely liberal forums. Again, I know what to expect there and change my style of posting for that forum. The policies help make up the forum culture. The topic on "what is a blog?" is of more interest to me. That is why I removed the term "Weblog" from this site, see WayBackMachine.
