Why are posts about the service it provides to LIBRARY DEVOTEES zapped????????????

Because it is advertising a commercial service?

Advertising is not allowed. Not even for books. Not even for 'services to LIBRARY DEVOTEES'.

Since library-related sites on the Internet are few in number, zapping
info about one of them makes no sense on a site that claims to be
"Library Thing." "Book Thing" would be a more appropriate name.
Wowbrary.com is working to expand the usefulness of public
libraries for its patrons.

Your dictates/rules are senseless and not library or library-patron friendly.

>4 Molly3028:
1. "Library" in "LibraryThing" refers to your personal library, so yes, BookThing is a good approximation.
2. MarthaJeanne is not making dictates. She is referring you to the rules set up by the company that runs this site.

Happy to have added "wowbrary" to my "avoid at all costs for spamming" list!

>7 lorax: I doubt Molly3028 is associated with it. It seems to be a perfectly legitimate service.

anglemark (#8):

I'm sure it's a legitimate service. They're still spammers. I don't buy books by authors that spam, either, even though I have no doubt they're actual books. I guess it is possible that someone entirely unaffiliated would spam on their behalf without their knowledge or consent, but that seems sufficiently unlikely that given it's not something I would have heard of otherwise and won't particularly miss, I'll take the risk.
