Self Link?

Perhaps I'm overly suspicious, but this post smell like a self link/Pepsi Blue. [more inside]

GiveWell, or Give 'em Hell?

Is This Transparency? OP with very slim, one-year posting history asks a question about finding a good charity in AskMe, just prior to year-end tax-decision time. Newly registered responder posts a newly formed charity-aggregator/evaluator organization, without mentioning that he is, apparently, one of the two founders. Self-promotional setup leading to self-link? Or am I being too cynical?

No guessing required: this is a callout

Is tombola breaking the guidelines by posting a blog post from a site for which he is an editor? [more inside]

Do callouts have a shelf-life?

I'll probably regret it, but I guess this is a callout. [more inside]

Self linking makes my heart hurt...

This user had a post deleted yesterday for self linking and four out of her five comments have been self links. Why is her account still active? [more inside]

Pitchforks?

This post links prominently to this URL, (which redirects to this Blogspot site). A rudimentary glance at the source code reveals a rather obvious favicon icon almost certainly belonging to this first-time poster.

Self-Linking Callout

kirkaracha might need to be reminded of the "no self-link" policy.

Self-link
Evidence

Personally, I think it's a relevant and useful link, but I don't think it should be up to the poster to make the judgment call, do you?

Self-link. Don't link to things you're involved with.

Self Link on the Blue

55335 on the blue is a self-link (I'm deliberately not linking to it), anyone know how to contact a mod? Are they asleep? It's especially irritating because it's a self-link to a crap site about "marketing and making money on the web". Also, how about a feature that allows a user to self-revoke posts for a certain amount of time (like 10 minutes) if they realize or learn it was a bad idea.

Possible self-linker? Turns out no.

Is this setting off anybody else's self-link-dar? 8 comments to the 'Filter and one answer to AskMetafilter, no profile information, and she favorites her own not-particularly-interesting post?

nearly every one of cleverusername's FPPs contains, somewhere in it, a link to The Escapist.

For instance, nearly every one of cleverusername's FPPs contains, somewhere in it, a link to The Escapist. It's true. Check it out.

Civilization Vs. The Middle Ages

Civilisation Vs. The Middle Ages. This has got to be a self link. A single link to a 'framing' post on a blog with two posts and a miss-spelled title (and you know it's bad if I notice something being misspelled), all by someone who posted a handful of comments from over a year ago wherein he called for the execution of both Hugo Chavez and Cindy Sheehan.

This appears to be a Self-Link

This appears to be a Self-Link, both in tone and because the poster has the site listed as their homepage.

Selflinking call-out

Ignoring whether or not you think bevets is a troll in general, isn't self-linking to the same page on your own website three times in the same thread a bit on the spamming side?

Vigilance

You have got to be joking? No. Considering the number of self-links that we've been having lately, I think that it's worth everyone's time to appreciate people who are keeping their eyes open for them, and to give them credit for trying, even if that particular link turned out to be a dud.

Self-link ahoy

This is the second time RonZ's linked to komar.org. The first time was to the halloween lights display and this time it's the christmas lights. If I recall correctly, the original poster of the christmas lights thing was outed as a self linker (although I can't find the thread) so I suspect it's a sock puppet at work.

Self link, with proofs

Owner of FPP'ed Flickr set: "I'm 19." FPP author: "Age: 19" Inconclusive. Likely coincidence.
Owner of FPP'ed site: "Copyright 2005 Aaron Wynn & William Wynn." (google cache) FPP author: "Aaron Wynn" (home page) Conclusive. Enough.

Linking to your own Livejournal as a news source: deceptive?

Self-link detected.

They're clamoring for it, and here it is. This post contains a nakedly aggressive self-link. For shame, doc.

Self-Link Callout

I know someone has posted a self-link as a FPP and hasn't identified it as such (he has also done it in comments). I think it is because he wants to keep his anonymity. I don't want to out him, but at the same time I think it isn't right to post a link to a site that is your own (esp. without disclosure). Should I just email him to let him know I know? Should I email Matt directly about it? Thoughts on how best to handle?

Self-linker on Metafilter

The guidelines say: Self-linking also appropriates the use of MetaFilter as your guestbook...

So why is this still here?

Is this the way to do self-links?

This thread is interesting to me, because I've held off posting similar content, for fear of reprisal and bandwidth usage. Is there an appropriate way to post 'discovered' content without having the MeFi Hall Monitors yell "SELF LINK! SELF LINK!"?

Two self links in one post.

Two self links in one post. And they're kind of creepy, to boot. Not a particularly auspicious beginning for the 16K club.
