Rules against links or certain links?

I can't speak to your question, as I'm not a list administrator nor do I know 
the answer.
However, as a list member/consumer, I do appreciate the tools people share on 
this list:  free or pay.

In fact, I use many of them as audit tools for DNS misconfigurations.
I find that using a 3rd party tool helps to mitigate finger pointing.  That is, 
I can share a link to a tool which spells out what is wrong and share with the 
appropriate fix agents.
"Please see that ABC and DEF dns tools are showing the same issues I am seeing, 
so the problem is not limited a specific area".

That said, perhaps list admins can chime in and tell us how we can share links 
without them to be considered spam (?)

My two cents.
