Rules re: Self-Promotion ("I have this blog...")

Hi everyone -

Quick note on self promotion. Lots of students want to document "My Law School Journey" and they want to use this forum to gain a bunch of followers for their blog, Twitter, YouTube, Grindr, whatever it is you guys use nowadays.

Similarly, lots of people score pretty high on the LSAT and figure they can make an honest buck tutoring other students. And wow, are there EVER a lot of potential customers on this here forum! Ditto "career counsellors" or whatever they call themselves when they don't have a law career but say they can help you make one for yourself.

 

So here's how we're going to deal with this going forward:

1. Go ahead and link whatever you want in your profile. Do NOT start a thread or begin spamming already-existing threads with links to your stuff. If you do that we will remove the link immediately. If it becomes obvious that all you're doing here is dropping bald hints that your more fulsome opinion / better resources / free stuff can be found in your profile link, we'll remove that too. 

2. If some one asks a question that is directly related to what you can offer - if the person is in fact inviting responses - send them a PM. If we get a complaint that you are firing off unsolicited PMs you can expect a ban.

3. This is NOT an acceptable reason to start a new account. We've already had one person indicate they want to promote themselves personally via a "throwaway". Nope. You know the risks of associating your forum account to your offline self. You assume them if you choose to do so. You don't get it both ways. And no, three years from now, when your ears are burning because of all the inane stuff you posted as you commenced Your Journey, we will not be deleting your old posts or your account. So please put a LOT of thought into whether you really want to do this.

 

Here is some background to this decision so you get where we are coming from: on a forum like this our members represent a very niche community with both ambition and means. Pretty much the perfect target for marketers, both professional and amatuer.

If unchecked this place would rapidly be overrun with shills selling something, or offering something in exchange for clicks, or trying to gain followers for themselves. You guys would have to sift through posts trying to figure out if the info was real or just a pitch to get you to clickity click. If you really want to hear a pitch, go literally anywhere else on the internet and you'll get your fill. That's not what we are about here.

I want to sell my services giving custom beatdowns on a contract basis. Send me as much information as you can about yourself and your life, and I'll write you a medium-length essay about why you are wrong, and stupid, and how your only path forward in life depends on realizing as much. All for a small "donation" of course. Also, follow me at OnlyFans/Diplock!

Diplock seems to have figured out how to make some money off of most ls.ca users' secret kink.

If I wanted to be made fun of I could just comment something obscenely incorrect and just wait for @BlockedQuebecois to reply for free.

Yeah. No one wants to buy the cow when the milk is free. That's true. My grandmother has been warning me about that ever since I was a little girl.

Just wanted to say I’ve never seen the word “inane” used as frequently anywhere else as it is here.

Well, have you ever seen as much inanity as you've seen here?

Meh, various copyleft organizations have shown that isn't true. Plus so many porn people on twitter posting their thirst traps and getting people to subscribe to their Patreon, Twitch Channel or Onlyfans.  I seem to recall seeing a Patreon for a legal community too 😛 

@Hegdis How many headless grindr profiles we talking about?

I think you can still get away with charging a premium, considering the prestigious Diplock brand name - a Diplock reply gives me an air of being amongst the OGs and having more refined tastes. You're the U of T of people who can lecture me online! BQ might reply to me for free, but I can't really show that off to my friends or leverage it to gain admission to exclusive networks, considering the universality of the BQ experience. Quality over quantity, y'all.

I'll have you know that I've received, approximately, 5 likes in the aggregate from Diplock for my posts on ls.ca. If that's not currency, I don't know what is. It's like our very own Erdős number.

Now's as good a time as any to mention that I'll be starting an OnlyFaMs, a subscription service where you watch videos of me reading the Family Law Act aloud while I cry.
