I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Some hack could be developed to avoid URL's in the marketplace area.
I know there are ways to avoid these, but it would help imho.
There is a per-forum vBulletin option to "Allow BB Code" and I think that if I turned that off, URL's would not work in the Links forum.
I think it would break smilies though.

Isn't it possible to add a header message just above making a new topic in the link sales category displaying that it's better not post the URL? Some red frame like I see daily now when I use Twitter, that keeps telling me I need to upgrade firefox even after clicking it away 5,000 times already
