I have noticed that on this forum, people frequently post links to their hubs or even their Lulu stores; apparently to give information of interest to writers and/or to request feedback on their writing. Is this practice allowed / tolerated on this forum?

There seems to be quite a lot of it lately.Look left before posting "Do not start threads for the sole purpose of promotion or posting links." I would also add, don't respond to a post with your own link either. You can point out that you have a hub that might help someone, but don't link.
